Well crap. This “goal” is so not going well. It would be going a lot better if I actually played the damn thing. But… other things are more important. Like music. ;)
Just Gah! It won’t be done by Christmas or New Year or whatever deadline I set. This is why I never work to deadlines. I think my 2009 New Years Resolution will be to Never Work to a Deadline again!
I abominate deadlines!
I have started to do a Savasana each day, usually in the morning. They are so relaxing and truly make you appreciate each day more than if you just get up, jump out of bed and run around doing chores and ‘the usual’ daily stuff.
Now I’m noticing that I just stop when a cat wants a cuddle and stare outside listening to the bird song, watch the sky, and are more one with the flow of life, rather than fight it or rush past it. I still get everything I need to done but I do it in a stress free manner. It is a far better way to live.
Obviously I love yoga anyhow, but I am beginner and even if you don’t do yoga you can do a Savasana as part as your day. There are no weird back bends or funny twists. It’s pure relaxation and restoration to your mind and body. You simply be.
The only problem I am having is that I need to focus on being more aware during my daily Savasana as I do tend to nod off on occasion… Goes to show I am relaxed, but that isn’t the point of the exercise.
This is a personal goal as I am learning yoga and I wish to learn each position to incorporate a balanced restorative way of life into my life. This is the first one to learn as it’s the most beneficial to anyone and everyone. I can still do any yoga class anytime, but this I can do by myself every day. When it’s a habit/routine/daily practice without having to remind myself I will have achieved the point of this goal.
While I’m glad I tried this… I’m just not one of those crafty people. I honestly don’t care about my tapestry. At least I tried it. I’m going to freecycle the tapestry (I only did four little lines) and see if anyone else wants it to test out of they like tapestry.
