This is how I feel, sometimes
Sometimes I feel just like these red chairs. In a fog, all cattywhompas. Especially right now when we’ve been cooped up for months with no end in sight. In a conversation with my “read your own damn book club” we were discussing how we were going to deal with the impending winter. We all thought, the past six or so months sort of felt like winter, where we all hunker down and go into a human sort of hibernation waiting for the spring. So now that winter is really coming, how are we going to deal with it. No solid answer came up other than taking care of ourselves.
Then there are other times I feel like these red chairs, with the sun about to shine, a rainbow (or rainbows) signifying hope. This is when I feel myself. That optimistic person that truly feels like things will, eventually, be just as they’re supposed to be. Sometimes we just need to take a moment to look out at the horizon and just breathe. Come back to ourselves, whatever that means for you.
So as we make the fall transition to winter, how are you going to take care of yourself so you can take care of your family, friends, and teams?
Here are a few things I'm going to do:
Dance like no one is watching. Check out my morning workout from BodyGroove.
Write in my journal, thank you Andrea Leda for giving me the tools for this practice.
Bake. In particular, sourdough bread.
Bing watching Hulu or Netflix. My current binge is The Blacklist.
I’d love to hear about your “get outta the funk” methods. Email me.
