Fortunately my flight wasn’t cancelled, only delayed. But by the time I arrived at Newark Airport I had already missed my connecting flight to Los Angeles and had to catch one six hours later. While waiting at the airport, I spoke to several people who were also waiting for flights. I heard firsthand stories from some who had been on the East Coast during the hurricane and whose friends and relatives had lost their homes and businesses.
I shared the Brain Gym® Hook-ups activity, glad that I had something calming to offer. I noticed how eyes softened, shoulders relaxed, breathing slowed down, and the mental chatter seemed to lessen, for others as well as for myself. It’s one thing to read about a disaster and see photos, and another thing to talk to people who have lived through such fright and hardship.
