Ever since I started my recovery I’ve been told, by pretty much everyone who supports me, that I need to start practicing yoga. I’ve tried out a few classes and found that the teachers I like the most only teach at night, which is all fine and dandy, but sometimes, I’ve learned, I need to start my day with some yoga. So I woke up early this morning and decided to do a relaxing, and inspiring, yoga sequence. I’ve been a little off since last week so I thought that this would be a helpful coping skill to clear my mind and start my day off in a fresh and calm manner. By taking the first 20 minutes of my day to focus solely on my breathing, stretching out my limbs, and setting an intention for my practice, I instantly felt more in tune with my body and mind. By doing this yoga practice just for myself I believe that I have significantly impacted how my day will turn out. Because I focused on myself this morning, and truly listened to my needs, I have a feeling that today is going to be a great day.
