So, between getting sick and the holiday, it’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve been at the yoga studio.
I just enjoy this space so much. I haven’t taken a yoga class in a while — I am really trying to take it easy until I start PT and figure out exactly the ways that my knee should and shouldn’t bend. It’s difficult – but I am reminded of the principles that my first teacher talked about, namely being gentle with oneself. I’ll be back in classes soon enough, and in the meantime, I can still practice yoga daily — even if not a physical practice.
Something very interesting – as I get older, it’s as though I can tell even sooner when I am getting sick. Post college, I had about a day’s head’s up. It would start with a tickle in the throat, and then, rapidly it seemed, I’d be offline in bed the next day. For the past several years, it’s been about a 2-3 day head’s up that started with a sniffly nose. Not actual sickness, but just a bit more sniffly, enough to be regarded as allergies. This last time, however, it seems I was in my body more. The week before I noticed being sniffly, I was very, very tired. Could this be a preliminary marker? Quite interesting if that is the case.
I have been doing some more reading about nutrition. Reflecting. I think I’m – well I know I am – in the midst of an existential crisis. What is my passion? I know that I could talk all day about education. For reals. I also am interested in talking about nutrition and health. I realize that I am still sort of floundering. But that’s okay. It’s part of the journey.
