I am doing all of the usual you read about on here but I swear today anxiety is trying hard to kick in and I am fighting back. I did my Yoga and I have tried my breathing and other techniques but that little demon anxiety is STILL trying hard so I am just going with the flow and thinking positive thoughts and all of that. I had a hard day yesterday with Crohn’s problem which of course caused anxiety to start in. But I am hoping my friend Yoga will assist me with this problem.
I am an empath or to some, blessed with discernment and I have severe anxiety. But I use Yoga, Positive modes of thinking, prayer and Tai Chi to help me try and keep it low. I have good days and I have really bad days. But I have to say it like walking on a swinging bridge and I never know how it is going to shift next on that ropey bridge. But I do try to stay positive. Yoga gives me toning, a peaceful tranquility and Tai Chi does the same as well as helping me to get a form of meditation. To top, that off, being an Empath makes all of this almost null when it is at its strongest. It is a battle unto its own. You have to be one to understand one. And if you are not one, try and understand those of us who are because you will have loyal, gentle, great hearted person to be friends with! Have a great evening or day, depending on where you are!
So, I stumbled myself around until I finally got the nerve to try some Yoga even though I was hacking like well, whatever hacking coughs sound like. hahahaha. BUT I was able to do some rest positions and even though I only held out five minutes I still held out ! It did help the anxiety although the steroids are trying to fight that. As usual. So my accomplishment was that I was able to do something with Yoga, even with Bronchitis!
Well, I have new baby parakeets, groups I started for grief, Terrible anxiety and then there is Yoga. I have as you all know now, a Love/ Hate relationship with Yoga. The more I do it, the easier it gets and I was doing it for a long time until life happened and I couldn’t or didn’t. Whichever way you choose to look at it. BUT, I started back because it helps my anxiety. As it is going along, downward dog, my arch enemy (not really) is trying to beat me down. That, to me is one of the toughest ones. Or at least when I first started and then started back. BUT, I am getting there, pain and all. And it is great in helping anxiety. So, here we are. Have a great day everyone!
Well that just shows how sick I have been. lol. all up at the top. UGH
Soooo, I am having a kidney problem soooo I cannot do my Yoga beacause it hurts bad.I can feel it already. My body is tense, My mind is not relaxing and of course Anxiety is at a bit of a high!Yes, I may gripe about it but when I cannot do it I am just like UGHHHHHH! At this point I would smile at doing downward dog! BUT, on the upside maybe it will get better quick. I sure hope sooo. Hope my fellow blogger friends have a great day!
The parakeet update is the two babies are still growing as of now. They are so far still thriving but my camera has a flash so I cannot get it off and I am scared I will blind them so hello anxiety as I worry anxiously about whether to chance it or not so I can share with all of you. Then my cat, the “do nothing” cat when I try to get pictures is still, well doing nothing but watching does help my anxiety. And my dog, Buddy, a pom, the brother to two German shepherds, is my Anxiety helper. He tries to calm me when I get too anxious. So this is the day to share anxiety, the thriving baby keets and of course anxiety and how it affects me and how my dog Buddy helps me through it. But now I am about to go upstairs and try to get a pic of the baby keets so anxiety. Okay I took them but got worried so here is the best view I have. Anxiety. hahaha. Hello. again. 🙂 I think it is time for some Yoga!
