Morning meditation, journaling and yoga session.
My quiet time before the family is up.
The first week of my Fall Into Fitness Group is complete and I am sore all over!!! This quiet time is exactly what I needed.
But I’ll be honest, it’s something that is hard for me to actually do.
Sure I can press play and do the yoga, I actually like the stretch from yoga.
But mediation and journaling?!?! That is something I really have to force myself to do.
But this is what I have come to realize.
When I don’t feel like meditating, journaling or writing down my thoughts I’m usually avoiding some kind of internal confrontation.
Sometimes it’s easier to bury things than it is to face them.
To just keep being busy than to slow down and sit in the uncomfortable silence.
Of course it is.
If you don’t write it down, it’s not as real right?
If you don’t acknowledge it, it’s not happening right?
But the more I practiced tuning in with myself and my thoughts, the better I got at understanding myself.
I would love to say that I am st a place where I can meditate and journal everyday, but I’m so not there yet.
But I am trying to be more consistent.
This morning I put my pen to paper and I wrote whatever came to my mind.
At first I felt a little silly.
I mean it’s kinda being to just but your random thoughts on paper.
But the more I wrote, the less silly and more light I felt.
Check in with yourself today.
Even if it’s just for a few minutes.
Even if all you can manage is a few words.
It’s not only for when you’re working through heavy stuff.
Take five minutes or ten minutes today and just be with your thoughts.
Write down your goals, your fears, things that you are grateful for.
Make it your safe space. ✨
