“Empty yourself of everything. Let the mind rest at peace.”
— Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching (Taoism)

Today’s Excerpt:

Staring Contest

Compete to see who can keep their eyes open for the longest without blinking.
(You could follow this activity up with a breath-holding competition if you feel it would be safe for those participating.)


  • How did the staring contest make your eyes feel? Did your body send you any signals that you should blink? (Dry eyes.)
  • How do our bodies tell us when we are lacking other essential needs like sleep or rest? (Yawning, grogginess, grumpiness, etc.)
