The ability to hold space around any idea, physical sensation, or emotion before reacting. When we find ourselves either clinging (to our way, our strategy, our idea of how things should go) or wincing (from something we don’t like), we seek to consciously relax our perspective. By softening our point of view, we gain breathing room and internal buoyancy. We become centered and grounded within. Equanimity leads to calm, clarity, and balanced decision-making.
