Are you a highly focused person driven to get things done? Do you forget to do self-care? For the past 4 days I have been in front of my computer. My body was frozen into a sitting posture. This morning I actually had to battle my mind to allow myself to do some tai chi and qigong. My mind wanted to jump into the mentally etched list of tasks for the day, but my body was pleading for loving attention and care.
Today while doing my qigong postures and tai chi form I could feel my body releasing tension and dissolving aches that I allowed to accumulate. I marveled at how the slow movements and deep breath work were in sync to bring me back to my happy place. I felt more relaxed, stretched out, and centered to tackle another day of computer work. Hope you too have a self-care routine which brings you back to your happy place. If not, tai chi and qigong might help you too.
I am filled with wonder, gratitude and awe for the journeys we travel and for the teachers we meet along the way.
