Just try one. It is okay. They help lift you up. they are legal. Not bad at all. That is what started my journey to battle Nicotine. I would do it off and on because many months between everything, I was very Physically active. Rapelling, hiking, climbing, etc. But then I just kept doing it one day. I have never been a normal type smoker. I hate the smell. never do it indoors or in a car or anything like that but now I am on the road again, to stopping. It is the Psychological battle right now, beat the Physical but it can be tough. So, trying hard, lot’s of praying and more exercise than usual. Here I go. lol.
I have learned…
To love more openly. To give more freely. To not let my Empath wires go crazy. That anxiety can be handled sometimes even when it is extreme. That is not easy but it can happen. To find some of my past interest and work on them. To appreciate. To hope. To try and reach out where I used to cling to aloneness. To laugh more, to fight harder. That I love my Country. To work harder on Yoga and prayer and meditation. To live.
Well, I have started walking more and picked up my Tai Chi again to go with my Yoga. I am doing as much as I can to stave off anxiety during these times and achieve a calm state of mind. It works and I am happy with that but as you may have seen from some of my writing, I have my down days as well. But I am hoping that by increasing to as many positives as I can, I will able to withstand the grief of loss recently and past, this Virus thing from getting to me and to have good days! Hugs! hearts.
There is probably nothing is my house that has not been cleaned, Clorox wiped, (except me) re-arranged, decluttered, planted, washed or otherwise been done. So now I think I will go to my neighbors and offer to do any outside weeding, cleaning you know, whatever. But I can’t really because they have been as busy as me. On the up of the uppest side, with Yoga, work, exercise, Prayer, meditation, Yai Chi, watching what I eat I can NOW outrung the neighborhood Chihuahua, Lucifer. You knw, the one who terrorizes us and chases anything that moves including tiny pebbles blown by the wind. Even the leaves try to fall away from his direction. NOW though I can outrun the little 3 to 4 pound beast when he breaks off of his leash as he often does. Things may not be normal right now but I am having a good time with that little dog. He is quite ill with me right now actually. hahahahahaha. Hugs to all!
Well after my bout with Lucifer (the neighbor dog of terror) I knew I had to do Yoga. A LOT of Yoga and I did. I did Yoga for an hour. I did Tai Chi for twenty minutes. I listened to calming waves. I did my steps, my breathing, my relaxing, my twist and turns and ups and downs. I did everything my Yoga video said to do. My anxiety has forgiven me for getting slack. Now I just have to work on not being so in tune to what being an Empath does for me. Yes, life is real over here. Have a great evening from my side of the world. 🙂
It is a beautiful day out, a bit nippy and yeah I know I am supposed to be all sunshine and rainbows but I just have days. Yes, those days when your are doing you r yoga, your anxiety is off the roof, you are crying and your nose looks like a running faucet so you clean and do your yoga and Tai Chi and pray and cry and well, I guess I look like a real mess. But it is okay for me to have those days and maybe you do as well. Either way, I am still trying and I am still doing. And I finished and finally calmed down and was proud of my workout. And then. I ate a cookie. Yea, I did. Have a wonderful day to my fellow bloggers and friends!
Well Yoga is still kicking my bootie but I am still doing it and writing and Tai Chi. I am trying to get back to the healthy as I indulge in a bowl of vanilla bean, peanut butter and caramel milkshake this A.M. I love writing and still working on my zombie book while I tackle graphics and stay uber busy if I can. That also keeps anxiety at bay. I have to say though that Yoga is so good but so hard. Downward Dog is like my enemy. hahahahahaha. That dog is tearing me up! But I will get it as my back screams when I do it. So, I just tell my body, buck up and get ready for the rollercoaster of temp pain because we feel so much better after a short bit. I also love my yoga warm ups. They really help me in the less stress level so I can write, do the art and graphics.
