Just Breathe

Just breathe.
That seems to be the theme of this edition.

I love how our wellness columnist, Ms. Jennifer Durand of the Nurture Nook, and our business columnist, Mr. Robert Ritch, both independently came to discuss the importance of breathing in this edition of the Pulse. Setting aside time for relaxing and breathing can immensely help physically, and even in the business world it’s important to slow down, visualize your goals and let solutions come to you.

It can be easy to get overwhelmed if you do not stay focused. So stay focused! Remind yourself what is important to you, and spend your time doing that.

Please join the Pulse at the Nurture Nook on Tuesday, Oct. 20, beginning at 5 p.m. for a celebration. Read more about that on page 34.

Additionally, the next installment of the Murfreesboro Entrepreneurs Association will meet at Mayday Brewery on Thursday, Oct. 15, at 5 p.m. Come on out to either or both.

Further exploring the breathing theme, Ross Lester and the Everybody Drum Some team want everyone to be in tune with the rhythms of life. If your heart beats and your lungs inhale and exhale, you are a percussionist!

Join the drum circle every Saturday morning this month near Concert Musical Supply on West Main Street.

Even Phil Valentine gets into the quality of breathing topic this month as he calls out Volkswagen for trying to cheat pollution tests. It is crucial that everyone has air to breathe. We really don’t “need” very much when you get down to it, but everyone needs clean air and water. Let’s do what we can to make sure there’s plenty of that for everyone.

Explore the following pages of the Pulse, and find something interesting to get into this month.

MTSU football has a big Oct. 3 homecoming game with Vanderbilt coming up.

Venture into Sam’s Sports Grill each Monday at 7 p.m. for head football coach Rick Stockstill’s live radio broadcast, on Sundays for Sports Trivia Night or anytime through the week for fine ribs, chicken tenders and lots of sports.

The Boro Art Crawl project will be held the evening of Friday, Oct. 9, with numerous downtown area establishments participating in this community art endeavor.

Otherwise, there’s pig roasts and trunk shows, concerts and haunted houses, Quidditch and more in this edition, and around the area.

If you’ve ever wanted to see the Flaming Lips perform next to the Parthenon in Nashville, the Oct. 17 SoundHarvest Music Festival is your chance.

Who’s going camping this fall?

One team of local adventurers plans a special excursion to Kentucky on Oct. 16 in an effort to track down Mr. Sasquatch. The community has rallied behind this courageous group of explorers who are focused on locating a gigantic forest beast (who may have the ability to disappear).

Could this be the month that definitive scientific evidence of Bigfoot is found? Check out next month’s Pulse for the answer.
