It’s one of those days.
The news of the world has been heartbreaking. My child has been demanding. It’s gloomy and rainy. I haven’t had a cup of coffee in days and it’s making me pretty irritable.
Thank goodness for yoga.
Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras tell us that yoga is the stilling of the mental fluctuations. It is the quieting of the mind and it is on days like this that I am so grateful for the yoga practice that I have been learning over these past 15 years. It’s not an overnight cure but with yoga at least I have a toolbox with everything I need if I just remember to take the time to open it.
On hectic busy days I can take 5 minutes to practice breathing exercises. Maybe I can even squeeze in 15 minutes to do some sun salutations and finishing poses. If I’m really lucky I can get in a full practice.
Everyone could use a few of these tools and a reminder to open the toolbox by getting some time to practice in good company.
