Hello everyone! Thank you so much for all the love that I have been receiving!
So today is a great day. I have hit my first milestone on my personal yoga challenge. I am so, so happy with how it is going. I would of posted this a lot earlier but I didn’t manage to fall asleep until about 5am. Then woke at about 9.30. Again after spending what felt like an eternity in bed awake. Trying to fall asleep and failing miserably. I did about 50 minutes of full blown heavy breathing, deep stretching and ultimate focussing positions. It felt superb. I worked my way through a few of the positions that I had been struggling with. I am an incredibly impatient person sometimes so doing that last night is a massive step for me.
I will write a seperate post a little later with screen shot comparisons to see my progress. And there is a remarkable difference from day one and today. I genuinely feel like a different and newer version of myself everyday. Yes, I’m still an emotional bomb set to explode, but I’m learning to control my thoughts. I’m actually learning to even think of nothing again. I am sure that anyone with an anxious mind will tell you that thinking of nothing usually results into a novella of all the things you should apparently be thinking of. So my quiet mind and control is becoming stronger, definitely from practicing yoga.
Today was so much easier in regards to creating a flow. I am also up to 35/40 minute morning sessions now too. I haven’t been posting the warm up of sun salutations that I do for 10 minutes whilst I make tea and brush teeth, shower etc. I’m doing yoga everywhere. It’s addictively refreshing. I was practicing downward dog in the showers and forgot to wash my hair properly. Halfway through drying I realised. Haha. Washed my hair again. Then dried again. So I am definitely enjoying it.
I won’t babble on any more considering I’m too excited to write the reflection post of the whole week! So I’m going to post this and get cracking with the rest of my posts today.
Thank you for reading! Hope you enjoyed it.
