Kathy & I are trying to find a balance that works for doing yoga in the mornings while I’m still off work. I go back in just under 2 months, and I want to make this part of my daily life.
So this morning, I set up the yoga DVD and waited for her to show up. We’ve determined that since she has such a narrow window, that I pretty much have to have it ready to start when she gets here. Because I didn’t – we only got 20 minutes of today’s 34 min routine done. But we got lots of stretches and downward dogs in.
She left, I’m waiting for the school # to be not busy so I can call about Andrew being sick, and so I decide to do the meditation.
I’m rather secular in my practices and beliefs. I am spiritual, but I don’t *practice* it so much as acknowledge that there is a Higher Power than me. What that looks like, I’m not entirely sure, but I know that the physical world is not *it*
Back to meditation.
If nothing else, meditation calms the mind. It calms my thought processes. It calms my being. I feel relaxed and energized all at once. I think I blogged about it once.. I’m not going to go back and look though.
The 10 minutes of quiet meditation I did this morning were a lovely way to soothe the start to my day. Worries and cares melted away and my day has focus. I don’t feel like I am going to be wandering aimlessly through the day.
I recommend meditation to start the day. I wonder if it would work for the end of the day, too, to help me get a better sleep?
