Taking on too many tasks during the day? Constantly checking your phone? Easily distracted? Let us help you get centered once and for all.
“Centering” isn’t just another term for being focused. There’s an actual physical center of the body, located just below the navel. In Qigong, it’s called the “lower dantian.” Concentrating on this center will help quiet your mind. Once you’ve reduced the chatter in your head, you can get in touch with your badass higher self.
Then again, maybe you need a bigger shock to your system, something that will completely remove you from your current situation and give you what we call “Superoptimal Centering.” In that case, pack a satchel, jump in the car and head to Lebanon, Kansas. Here you’ll find the geographical center of the 48 contiguous United States. Just take US Highway 281 north 1 mile, and turn west on K-191. Go for another mile until you see the marker at the end of the road.*
There’s very little to do once you get here. And isn’t that the point? Relax, slow down, sign the guest register and luxuriate in the great expanse that is the Sunflower State. Just think: now nobody’s more centered than you!
*Note: the actual geographical center is about a half mile away, in the middle of a former hog farm.
