Move your mind, Move your body, Move your soul.
Starting to feel overwhelmed?
I know with all of the "Black Friday Deals" popping up in my inbox, on the radio, and, well... everywhere... I'm starting to feel a little tense.
Deep breathing is honestly a great option when feeling overwhelmed.
Breathe in, 2, 3, 4.
Breathe out, 2, 3, 4.
And maybe you MOVE it out of your body with this short sequence:
Child's pose - Puppy - Sphinx - Plank - Down Dog - Low Lunge - Reach Quad Stretch - Child's
I'm going through a rough time right now. And (well-meaning) people are saying things to me that don't exactly... match... how I am feeling.
"You are so brave."
"You are stronger than I am."
It feels like the separation language that I felt when I was my most in-vulnerable, my most untouchable. And I don't feel that way now. I don't feel disconnected, like those words make me feel.
And I don't really fee brave or resilient or strong.
I feel awful. Sometimes. And I feel very clear at other times. I feel scared as hell on the one hand, and in the next moment, trusting in what the universe will throw my way next.
Is it brave to follow your heart? To lean in to the things you love and move away from the things that don't fit anymore? I think I feel... honest.
You gotta feel it to heal it.
