The power of mental focus

Hi everyone. So the optimist optometrist has been starting to practice yoga. She has found it very rewarding, and wanted to share her experience with you all. She just got back from yoga, and is, in fact, very relaxed right now. So please forgive her if this is a rambly post.

So today the yoga instructor guy talked about vision and focus. He mentioned that an important part of yoga involves keeping your mind and your gaze as as still as possible. He had us focus on one point in the room to keep our minds still as well. Being the optometry nerd that I am, I tought it was kind of neat that so much of the mind stillness was connected to visual stillness.

So this was just a very short post to say that yoga is wonderful and enlightening, and you should try it. Longer, more informative post to come soon.

I will leave you with a yoga quote: "You cannot always control what goes on outside, but you can always control what goes on inside."
