I have been waiting for the Covid results that came back negative and that was great! But in the days waiting, I pushed my Yoga, meditation, and Prayer as much as I could! I thought I would fall out but I had to do it to stay sane. I did it over and over and over everyday but I am glad. It helped even if my Anxiety kept screaming “You are going to have it!” my mind was at least calmed from a Nervous break down by doing all of these things. I am so glad now that I did because it kept me on at least a base level of sanity. lol
I actually went to the Yoga room and did some Yoga to clear my mind a bit, relieve some anxiety and just to do SOMETHING to bring tranquility. I did some prayers, some meditation and I even did Tai Chi. You would think my body would be rock tight but no. I am not. Why? because once I am done hunger sets in and I am bored so I eat. Junk. Then I try to make up for it with fruit and veggies. But all in all at least I do have something to help. Or at least I think I do. My writing has been so scrambled here lately I think I need a trip to the Beach. Oh wait. they are closing most of them again. Do saltwater baths act like the Ocean? just kidding. lol
This is like a guide for me on how to stay healthy, in shape, calm (not always 100% because of anxiety but it sure helps) and how to use it for the things in life that try and take me over the top. There are so many styles and methods and yes, I still struggle because some are just really hard to do. But I do love it and I love being able to lose myself in it. The music playing is calm and sometimes I use the sounds of nature when I am in the mode for that. Yoga. It is a way of life and it does work!
Well I am not sure if it is all of the praying, yoga, tai-chi, meditation or lack of people. Maybe all of the above but my empath ability is on low gear. I think probably not being around people because the others are for my Anxiety and Panic. But, either way, I am like on a no feel zone with others in ways to gauge what they are feeling. However, it sure has helped me in the anxiety department. Oh well, just thought I would share that!
I have been so caught up that I put my Yoga on a shelf in my mind where I had occasionally took it off and used it. But now I realize Yoga is a staple that I use to help me to get to quiet moments of tranquility while working me to a point where at times I think I might just fall on the floor. But my Yoga, my longtime friend, pulls me back and helps my mind and my body and my soul. So glad to bring you back.
Okay everybody! I am slogging through, lol. I am Praying, doing Yoga, some Meditation and everything I can to keep the monsters at bay so it needs to kick in. Wow! What a week! But I am trying and that is all we can do is our best. The Anxiety has been over the top, people (only a few) over the top so I am just trying to box it all in a corner of my mind but I seal it and the tape keeps popping off. I need some something to kick in here. Well, I allowed myself a smile for a moment in the Chaos because, here, with all of you, I find some relief. People who are real like me. Life is not a fairy tale but it sure is full of adventure and challenges and mine this past week have been a few things. The news and depressing things on it also burden my heart but I am putting on my Armor best I can! 🙂 have a great day/night fellow bloggers!
As I had mentioned in the blog I just posted I had been away a couple of days so I wanted to go for a walk and get some calm in. Just to be clear, I use my WordPress on a desktop, not my phone so I write when I am here. 🙂 Anyway, I went and was about a half of a block when I spot him. Lucifer. The Chihuahua from Hades. He spots me. His owner smiles. I smile. Lucifer and I make eye contact and it is on. hahahaha. He is straining on his leash trying to get at me. I guess he has missed me and the squirrels must have been boring or the birds or the trees or whatever. All of it is a reason for him to attack. But, this time his owner was able to contain him on a new leash as he spiraled to me in a full run, teeth bared and all. Thank you for the welcome home. hahahahah. Needless to say. I will just stick to Yoga and such today. 🙂
I have challenged myself during this time to try and make my mind build strength again as I battled the Anxiety and more. I fight and fought it. And to my delight, it is a slow walk but I am becoming stronger. mentally and Physically and more. Yes, I am still battling Anxiety but I know it could have been much worse. Each day I find myself just a spoon full stronger but every little spoonful adds up. I walk now more, I am eating better, I am challenging my mind. I do Yoga, Yardwork, Devotional time, prayer, meditation and ANYTHING to keep my mind busy and I even play Brain games. NO, I do not do all of it everyday but I do some of it everyday. I accepted the challenge Thank god, so far, I am winning. Thanks to all of you who support me and keep me hanging in there and encourage me. You are a huge part of this battle! have a great day/night fellow bloggers/writers. Team US!
I combat anxiety with Yoga, a variety of essential oils and a lot of prayer. Yes, I can combine all three and it is fine. lol. Yoga helps me to relax and tone. Essential oils help with a variety of things and Prayer because I believe. I love the balance and although I still have Anxiety, I know it is my own mind that deceives and tricks me into thinking the thoughts I have. I guess if I had experienced it since Childhood maybe I could do better but it only started about 5 years ago? From full blown Panic attacks to Anxiety with occasional panic attacks. So, I just do my thing and try to work through it. I love life but I hate Anxiety and Panic but it is a part of what I battle now so I use my Armor. Hugs and have a great day/night fellow bloggers/writers! I added one of my very own photos to share for a bit of happiness it brings to me and hopefully to you!
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.
