If you're struggling to manage your stress levels without the pop, fizz or sparkle of your fave boozy beverage, then this is for You.
It's a tonic for anyone who's feeling overwhelmed by these brutal times of ours, which have many similarities to the game of Survivor.
Season 39: Island of the Idols aired on M-Net earlier this year and now it's starting a run on Vuzu, on Wednesday, 19 August at 21h00.
It stars Survivor legends Boston Rob and Sandra who make a comeback, but they don't play.
They advise the castaways from a separate island, where their faces are carved out in rocks. Rob's rock looks like him but Sandra's doesn't unfortunately.
One of the players Jamal - known as Jamoobs to me - says all sorts of thought provoking things on the show and this was my fave because it relates to our situation of change bigtime... he speaks about it after finding an immunity idol:
Jamal: Dealing with change has been my whole jam for the past few years.
I was in a rough relationship, I was not treating myself with grace and I was not feeling great about myself and the end of that relationship was really trying for me.
But the lesson that I learned from that, was how to take things in your stride, to move really slowly, not get too worked up about things, be in tune with my surroundings and be here in space and now in time.
Because when you're present, when you're observing, when you're connected in the here and now, moments reveal themselves to you.
It made such an impact on me that I wrote it down for remembrance and it's unbelievably useful to do to in these times of ours. Not easy of course, but to keep trying.
The way he explains the concept of presence is just perfect. Also, you can get added zing if you focus on your breath while doing it.
