Use daily practice to cope and center yourself.
Some days feel too much. Perhaps the world is racing to catastrophe. Or the daily rut is suffocating. Or change is overwhelming. Or apathy has drowned out any hope. Things are out of control and there is nothing we can do. So how do we endure?
We as artists (yes, even you, the artist in training!) turn to riyaaz, our daily practice. Practice is not meant to be solely for improvement, nor should it feel like an imposition by the teacher. As Sahi says in this clip, it can be an effective way to ground and release emotion.
There is an artist in each and every one of us. Your art is an intrinsic part of your being; it can bring you resilience, calm, strength, and contentment.
Whichever your chosen art form, channel it everyday - even for a few minutes - to find peace, release, and self-love.
