I’ve been awake since 4:44 AM, meditated on the dream, returned to bed only to arise at 5:54 AM to honor the request of my body to take to my yoga mat. As my body guided me through hip opening and back bending, and balancing asanas I began to feel extra sensitive……laying in savasana it took everything for me to be still. Taking to my laptop to release these thought from my head I notice I have six word documents open, all related to school, business, blogging and finance……uggghh…..I’m going to step away from it all…..Instead I’m going to take too long of a shower, dress in cute, warm spring like colors, spend time reading with the kindergartens then a long slow walk to my favorite nail salon and relax with a Mani/Pedi.
Mindfulness-based self-care is what I’m providing myself today, you see this care goes wayyyyyy beyond yoga and meditation, its awareness of every breath, every movement, every thought without attachment…..just awareness. Below is a short demo of one of my One Legged Balancing asanas (Eka Pada Koundinyasana) I’ll post a detailed version to YouTube later this evening.
Have a wonderful day and practice Mindfulness-based self-care
