In ancient Korean practices like Mago mindfulness, nature governs everything in our lives. Two opposite facets are able to come together to form a balanced while. Balance is sustained when what flows in, is able to equally flow out. Think about how the food you eat nourishes your body, then the leftovers are expelled into the toilet, and back to nature. An inability to release the excess can cause physically discomfort to you. The same principle is true of your brain. Anything that flows into your brain like stimuli or emotions, must somehow be released to create mental balance. If it does not, then you will suffer.
In today’s fast paced society, it is easily to get mentally overwhelmed. Emotional baggage becomes cluttered in your brain’s hallways and stimuli always seems to be pushing you to your limits. We have a simple, yet helpful solution to release this information surplus.

As you shake your body, visualize any tension being released by your body through your breath. See the stress and clutter being purge from your brain. Continue for about five minutes then begin to slow down. Notice how sensations in your body may have changed.
