Looking at the Sky

At the end of the day, after all the eye contact, computer work, time spent driving, focusing, reading, the brain could be buzzing with all the sensory input. The input through the senses stimulate the nervous system and can easily add bits of tension around the body, but particularly the neck and shoulders, and along the spine. Looking up at the sky, beyond the clouds during the day, or past the stars at night, puts you back in touch with the calm, vast part of you that is beyond the daily work of the bodymind. It also releases stored energy that is waiting to process experiences from the day and lets the excess dissipate, redistribute, and balance.
