When I ponder over the concept of uncertainty and how uncertain we are feeling about 2021, I realise that in reality, the future is never certain. So why do we worry about it now?
Think about your years as an adolescent or young adult. Did you focus on the future and its certainty or uncertainty? Probably not. The young can often live in the moment more easily.
I practice yoga regularly, and when I am doing my yoga poses, I consciously bring myself to the present moment; when I achieve that moment, I feel much stronger in my poses. If professional athletes took their minds off the present moment, they could compromise their balance and the game.
