Word of the Day(s): Health
Yesterday, I had a great but busy day, but at the end of it, I felt a bug coming on. So I did not practice yoga. I woke up today feeling sinus-y, congested, etc, and I realized I needed to rest. So I did.
At the end of the day, I started to feel so much better. So much so that I decided to try some light yoga! I did a video on YouTube entitled “Yoga for when you are SICK” (caps intended) so I figured it was perfect. It was by Yoga with Adriene, a popular user with over 380,000 subscribers! She’s not Erica, but I liked her class! It was gentle, light, and I am happy I did it. Was it my favorite class ever? No. But am I proud of myself for listening to my body and knowing when and when not to exercise? Yes.
Again, this 90 Day Journey has become so much more than just yoga. It’s a lifestyle change, not a fad diet, and with that comes nuance. I don’t feel guilty for missing a day of exercise, and I’m actually letting myself rest. And lo and behold, I’m recovering quicker. I’m learning to stop being so particular about things and ease into life. And for that, I’m grateful.
