The ‘Letting the Bus Go’ Exercise

Accepting how much we can achieve under time pressure without allowing panic to take over can be challenging. How often do we run into situations over which we don’t have much control, such as catching a bus ‘on time’ when it’s early? How do you react? Do you calmly head towards the bus stop or do your feet start running without processing what’s going on?

In my case, it has always been the second option. There might be a slight connection with my experience as a child, when I would see the bus from the top of the hill on a parallel road and I had to outrun it to the bus stop so I could make it to school on time.

Today I was advised to do the ‘letting the bus go’ exercise. It simply involved watching buses go into the direction I was headed, without catching them. My heart raced every time a bus reached their stop. I was ready to sprint, wave and position myself in front of the bus if need be just to get in. That was my fight instinct, a beautiful genetic heritage which in the world of having a bus scheduled every 10 minutes it only gives me stomach ache.

What is your ‘letting the bus go’ exercise that you need in order to improve your life?
