MINDFUL IN MAY
I was going to England in May to visit my Mam for a month but not now!
Dave is still having a months holiday and we are beginning the Great North Walk again and House boating. I am looking forward to it.
On holiday I leave my phone at home in it’s basket, no emails, no texts. It is an easy way to become more Mindful.
I take a step back and I practice morning yoga for myself.
I usually come up with ideas of what to teach in class when I am practicing. I sometimes stop and grab a pen! Then I look at mudras, meditations, marmas and things I have read to connect it all together and then focus on how to adapt it for everyone.
It takes up quite a lot of my time. On holiday I let this go...almost!
I take a break from socialising by disappearing to practice restorative yoga in the afternoon...bliss and come back bright eyed and bushy tailed. Ready for the next round of tea!
Instead of having jetlag, I practice restorative yoga in bed if I wake in the early hours and then creep out of bed early and enjoy the peace and connection to a different place.
Although I am not going to England I am going to holiday at home.
I am having a Mindful May.
Turning off technology.
I hope you have a break in May too.
This chance to slow down has driven us towards technology more….step away for a while. Rest...Renew...Heal
Meditations we practiced in class that you can practice at home in May.
Look down the list.
Give something a try.
