It does strike me quite often when I think meditation or Āsana is the cure to whatever crap I’m feeling, that leaning into practices is great but it’s the sustained healthy practices each day that are actually what nurtures me. So ask yourself you do overindulge at the weekend, but are overly strict during the week? Do you overexercise and then do nothing on some days? Do you practice mindfulness and meditation and then not have healthy relationships? All of these touchstones in life are guiding beacons to where you need to show up for yourself in your daily life.
Just as you move through Āsana and the breath is guided to where it is needed most. Let your intuition guide you as to where you need to channel your energy throughout your day. Over tea this morning with a friend I was reminded of all those times I forget to check in and ask how are you? It means we move further away from tuning to what our own body and spirit needs. So take a moment right now, close your eyes, breathe. Ask yourself what do I need. Be honest, say it whatever it is. Now be curious how can you make that happen. Now realise it. Write it down, become it. When you need to revisit it, throughout your day. Bear in mind you might just need tea, and that’s fine also. Great things happen over tea x
A sustained commitment to self-care, to joy, to being curious and creative in your life starts with each morning. Wake up, feel gratitude for being alive. Tell the people around you how you feel. Meditate, enjoy your morning routine, tea, breakfast. Exercise, practice Yoga, take walks in nature. Feel the power of connection to yourself by creating and practicing great habits. This sets you up for today, tomorrow, this year and all the years to come.
