Get Off Your Ass

Sometimes you get your ass up out of bed and grace the day with a big bright smile. Sometimes this is not the case. I found myself waking up grumpy and tired, overworked and drained. I needed to make a change, and this change needed to happen ASAP.

I started by waking up early to enjoy breakfast. This was a special time, time for me, not my blog, not my emails, nor my phone; just me and my food. Savouring each and every bite. Eventually I started to love mornings. Like a sacred ritual specifically to love myself. I started to incorporate 3o minutes of yoga. This was not a series, or an audio class lead by a yoga master of any sort. No, this was time to practice those poses that I wanted to master. Crow, side crow, hand stand, head stand, arm balances, scorpion. I made it my morning ritual to wake up and challenge myself.  I fell on my ass over and over again, but I wasn’t frustrated. This was play time.

After a month of practicing 30 minutes a day in my living room I mastered  most of the items listed above. I am especially proud of my arm balances. 3 months ago I was really struggling with these, now I can do it almost on command. BAM!
