As you might already know, I’m trying to slow things down this year. “Try” being the operative word, of course. All these years of hustling and trying to get more done have only led to mental exhaustion. And burnout. And this feeling that nothing I do will ever be enough. I need to let go of these burdensome “should statements” and just learn how to let go. Maybe this new Buddha Board will help.

In my guiding words vlog a couple weeks ago, I noted that “freedom” would be a priority for 2019. The objective is to embrace the freedom to enjoy life without the little voice in the back of my head that nags me into doing more. I need to let go.

While it won’t be a completely sufficient solution on its own, the very nature of the Buddha Board may guide me in the right direction. It’s all about embracing the natural impermanence of everything. We have to recognize that life is fleeting, that things come and go. Just like negative thoughts and emotions. Acknowledge them and move on.

I have to say, this Buddha Board is a remarkably simple yet decidedly tranquil little product. Sometimes, the best things in life are also the simplest. You can find it for about $35 online. They say that with proper care, it should last for years and years and years. You can also find the mini version for about $15 if you prefer.
