    Feeling a little inspired

    Sometimes on my really good days I feel like creating yoga content to help the spoonie community with managing chronic pain. Like just some breathing exercises I do when I am feeling nauseas from meds. I wonder if the spoonie community would enjoy that or hate that? Since we are always getting told to "try yoga". It isn't a silver bullet, but it helps a tiny bit. #Yoga

    JOURNEY

    Healing is hard work!
    There are endless days that no one sees. Days where the tears flow like rivers from so deep from the places you’d long forgotten even existed.
    💧Cry, let your tears flow freely!

    Days where you don’t even have the ability or the wherewithal to get out of bed but you have people you love depending on just that.
    🏋🏼‍♀️ Get up, and just take those next step.

    There are days that you know you’ve got nothing. I’m talking about nothing: nada, zip, zilch! You’ve depleted yourself to your bones.
    🌻 Rest, like your life depends on it.

    Friend, it’s not our job to wear ourselves out or to hustle for our worthiness. The only thing we do, when we are ready, is to own our truth then give ourselves the permission and the compassion to heal. ☀️

    You do not owe anyone an explanation of how you heal! It’s not a one size fits all!

    I believe in different healing modalities to engage my body to release trauma. I believe the body keeps the score. So I need to move. You choose whatever works for you!

    Some of mine include backpacking 🎒 , hiking 🥾 , and yoga 🧘🏼‍♀️ What people see on social media are the results of my journey. What they do not see on social media is what it took and what it cost me to get here!

    The bottom line is this: YOU ARE WORTH WHATEVER IT TAKES TO DO THE WORK OF HEALING. It’ll be messy. It’ll take grit. Rest. But it is possible!

    I’m rooting for you!

    Heavy/light

    Most of the time, I feel "heavy", I've almost forgotten how it is to feel "light"... About a year ago I started to take antigravity yoga classes. It's not easy for me at all, however just for some seconds when I manage to keep myself up in the air in the hammock, I can revive that lost feeling of lightness...besides, my spine feels so much better🌌

    Do you feel heavy or light ? And do you have anything that helps you to feel yourself light?

    Wish you lightness even if for a few seconds 🕊💜

    Little bit of a breakdown today

    I recently got back into yoga after my favorite studio was forced to close during Covid.

    I love yoga as it forces me to be present and in the moment. Having an anxious brain is very overwhelming so the practice of being present is very hard for me.

    I’ve tried to describe it to my husband. My personal analogy likens it to living on a merry-go-round. Your mind is constantly busy, spinning, moving. You are here, the world is here, you are in it, but, for me, life is a series of moments where you consciously try to focus on what’s going on around you, but the merry-go-round keeps you spinning. You may stop and catch a solid glimpse here and there, but you are never 100% a part of anything.

    This caused me to cry today, at the end of my yoga class, while still actually IN the class.

    I realized that my anxiety has prevented me from being 100% engaged, present, participating, feeling, loving, caring. I feel robbed. I see my life behind me and I’m front of me and it’s all filled with glimpses, disconnected moments, and an overwhelming feeling of missed opportunities to really enjoy life. My life has turned into thousands upon thousands of hours spent being lost in my mind, lost on my merry-go-round. I feel disconnected with my family, friends, work, and worset of all my children. It saddens me deeply.

    I will keep practicing yoga. And get back into meditation while I am at it. I will work on making a conscious choice to slow down this down ride in my head. To be present. To engage. I hope I can learn to be here, in this life, on this earth, and feel a sense of purpose instead of just feeling like I am hanging on for the ride. #Yoga #Meditation #Anxiety #Depression

    Natural medicine & dietary support groups?

    Hi there,

    I'm just wondering if anyone knows of any natural medicine, diet or complementary medicine support groups?

    My dietary and natural medicine usage has saved my life and I wish to speak with others who have had the same experiences. It would be great if there was a community to join, online?

    All the best,
    Lena

    AHHHH!!!! 😖

    I love my husband. ❤️
    He provides for us with his work. 🙌🏼 Thankful.

    But c’mon man, a workaholic before Pandemic hit, he works 24/7 and lately Weekends, unless we take kids out. 😷 ( thankful for tennis during week).

    My nerves are at a point break today 🤯 because he conducts his business thru phone speaker at max volume( can’t use ear buds because of a shunt in his head) loud , endless Zoom meetings. 📱💻

    I’m running out of hiding places here, while kids in vacay. 🏃🏻‍♀️🏃🏻‍♀️🏃🏻‍♀️🏃🏻‍♀️🏃🏻‍♀️😵‍💫

    Feeling like a ticking time bomb. 💣😶‍🌫️🤕🤢
