I love surprises! I didn’t always. The idea of the unknown made me uneasy. My calendar was always planned out and last minute changes would cause me stress and anxiety. I had a habit of setting expectations on future events and ultimately be disappointed if they didn’t work out or meet my expectations.

So, what changed? I still constantly manage my calendar, but I don’t let it hold me back from living in the moment. I have been worrying less about the future and try not to set expectations. I welcome changes and the possibilities they can bring. As a result of all this, my anxiety has decreased and I have less disappointments.

Being surprised is one of those moments in life when you are completely present. Your mind and senses are working to absorb what is happening. Surprises challenge you to slow down your thoughts so that you can respond instead of react. They are devoid of expectation. Even the simplest of surprises can delight. This is why I love the concept of Yogi Surprise, a new monthly subscription box designed to nourish and support your mindful life of movement.
