Are you remembering to do the basics that make you feel good?
I have mentioned before that my morning routine has been a bit disrupted during the lockdown especially the consistency of my yoga and meditation... Well today I did my minimal yoga warmups and my main kriyas that I am focusing on this year. It felt amazing!
Sometimes we know what we need but we resist, or self sabotage, and just don't allow ourselves the good things that we crave, want and need.
Do you aware of what works for you? Are you consistently allowing yourself to have these moments? Are you committed to you, and your wellbeing?
We are now on day 27 of lockdown in the UK and really needing to establish a routine that works and supports us. I know that I am.
When I have a routine I am able to create the space to be quiet and observe what else would be beneficial. For me it is looking at adding in the immune booster kriya into my daily sadhana. Why have I not even thought about this kriya before now?? Especially with everything that is happening....
"What is sadhana? It’s a committed prayer. It is self-enrichment. It is not something which is done to please somebody or to gain something. Sadhana is a personal process in which you bring out your best."
One of my other morning staples is to spend a few minutes outside as soon as possible after waking. The natural light is important for the body and our circadian rhythms - the flow of life.
I like to stand with my face towards the sun for a few minutes each morning.
This is so simple but so effective and a really good way to set you up for the day.
Internet and broadband.....
Today I received a notification on my phone that I have utilised all of my data allowance on my mobile contract! Really? I've been at home for the last month. At home where I have 'super duper extra fast cable broadband' provided by Virgin Media.
Yet once again it has been so bad that my phone has been defaulting to using the mobile network data in order to keep me connected.
I've had to purchase an extra gigabite of mobile data to see me through to the end of my contract month. RUBBISH...
A reset of my router and a few technical things done - hopefully all will be fine again.
