We all want to take care off our self’s and many off us think more about it with the beginning of a new year. We want to do better with new energy. I think it it’s a good idea to dived time in years, months, weeks and days, it gives us the possibility to get a grip on our time. I like it. And I always like New Year, it brings a feeling off a new start and fresh energy, hopefully we get some rest over the holidays and we can recharged our batteries and boy do we need that. Last year was a little tuff year in many way and am I tiered,
but I am hopeful for the new year and I have already started charging my batteries.
A long powerful walk, a gymnastic hour for 50+.
But the trick is to find time for all that, work, family and all there is to do and also take care off your self. I once was at a seminar with a spiritual teacher and one off the participants said that she wanted to practice her yoga everyday, but that she was a mother off tree and a full time worker and she didn’t find the time to do her practice. The teacher told her to wake up earlier in the morning before everybody else was up, wish would have meant a about five in the morning in her case. I have always remembered this answer. What he meant was, find time, make time! But it is not always that easy, is it ? Sometimes life just get´s in the way and we have to prioritize. But there is always a moment here and there and we can try to grab them and pause for a moment, close our eyes for a second and meditate on our breath or just stop for awhile and stretch, doesn’t have to take more then two minutes.
-Stand on the floor and stretch out your arms to the sides and over your head, put your hands together,cross the right leg over the left leg with both feats on the floor and bend over to the left, take a few deep breaths and hold for a moment. Shift to the other side and hold for a moment. Repeat on both sides.
-Stand with our feet’s a little bit more than hip wide apart, stretch out your arms to your sides in shoulder level and bend forward from the hips, with your body parallel to the floor. Press out through the crown off our head and out through your tailbone, elongate your spine and press out through your fingers, press the soles off your feet’s down into the floor. Take deep breaths and hold for a moment.
-Let your upper body relax forward and hang in the ragdoll for a moment.
Slowly come up in a standing position.
Patience was the word yesterday, I needed to be reminded off that. I am rather inpatient and it is not always a good thing, but sometimes it is a great help.
