Letting Go

Letting go is the opposite of clinging, grasping or holding on. Letting go is a reminder to release your grip and just let things be as they are.

Though it is easier said than done, letting go can be a powerful way for you to ease your struggling and resistance to what’s happening in your life.

Practical ways to let go:

  • Breathing: Breathing is an easy way to practice letting go by simply noticing your inhalation and exhalation. With every exhalation, focus on letting go and softening your body
  • Decluttering: Pick a space and declutter it. Use Marie Kondo’s spark joy method and Peter Walsh’s ideas for decluttering (see Practical Resources below).
  • Enhance Your Sleep Ritual.
    • Keep the temperature between 60 and 67 degrees.
    • Turn off all screens at least 30 minutes before bed.
    • Go to bed and wake up at the same time each day, even on the weekends.
