5. Going Inside (Pratyahara)

I’m a bit of a paradox when it comes to the kind of sensory stimulation I choose; both social butterfly and overwhelmed introvert wrapped up in one. The limb of pratyahara, withdrawal of the senses, reminds me that sometimes I need to spend some time in my own cocoon. And turn off the TV.

When you feel the need to stay in and hide from the world, I find that the idea of desensitizing myself with intense television and endless hours on Facebook 5. is the definition of tempting, but not helpful.

I need to shut off, put my feet on the earth, put some words on a page, stare up at the sky and just relax. Quietly.
