Back in the day before I started meditating I was an expert at medicating myself. I had been doing it my whole life without even realizing it.
I used to medicate myself with food, shopping and sleep. Sleep was my favorite drug of choice. When I was asleep I was in the utmost unconscious state and I did not have to feel my pain or much less face it. When everything became all too much I would just go to sleep. I did this for years until I learned how to meditate.
Yoga is a space–it is not an action.
It is not limited to an asana (pose) or a fancy arm balance, it’s a state of being—a lifestyle.
It is a way of thinking, breathing, sitting, eating, speaking, sleeping and doing.
Life can get downright messy sometimes and we all could use some reprieve once in a while.
This day in age most of us get inundated with so much information, stimulus and the to-do-list a mile long. Everyone has busy lives and sometimes it just seems to much.
I love writing and I want to do more of it but I find myself constantly battling procrastination and resistance. So I have set out to embark on creating the right atmosphere for my writing to take place, grow and evolve. Writing is like any other practice in our life whether it is yoga, meditation, healthy living or mindfulness. It all involves practice, so why should writing be any different?
