Hey everyone, I don’t know about you but it has been a crazy month so far! My body feels like… well, it doesn’t feel energized and good.
I know I have spoken about the breath before, I can’t really stop talking about it, but that’s just because it is so important to come home to yourself.
Lately I’ve been gravitating towards my mat more and more, which I am very happy about. In times when we feel horrible, it’s important to feed the soul and take care of the body. I do yoga twice a day and I make sure to add some cardio in the mix every day. I do three meditation sessions each day too. One of the meditations will always be a visualization of some kind. All of these practices keep me sane and grounded. When I feel lost I get on the mat and I find my breath. Once I have arrived home, I can then focus my intensions, I feel the gratitude on a deeper level. I visualize my goals being achieved.
One of the things I have noticed with my mental health and the trauma related issues I have, is that it’s imperative that I keep bringing myself back to the present. I need to remind myself what is real and what is not. What is current and what is in the past. The best way to do that for me, is practicing coming home to myself. I breathe. It doesn’t always work but like anything in life the more you do it the easier it becomes.
I am grateful for my breath, I am grateful for my body and I am grateful for life.
I hope you’re all keeping safe and healthy out there and I am sending love to the entire world.
Until next time,
