The difference breathing makes

I feel fantastic today! I think I was the most energetic person at my course. Even now after a full day of training, making a presentation, and not sleeping well last night (stressing over presentation), I am wide awake and sang away to almost a whole CD as I cleaned the disastrous kitchen and cooked dinner.

I am so relieved! I think there are a few takeaways from today.

1) Aerius is a much better antihistamine for me than the knock-off of Reactin that made me horribly dehydrated. I can breathe almost completely normally again!

2) Today our 90 minute yoga class was in the kundalini style, something I’ve really come to love. It has a warm up, some exercises that can be quite energetic (like today), then a lengthy relaxation with a gong, followed by meditation and a song to close. There is something about this style that really speaks to me and obviously suits me a lot better than our general more athletic practice. I think it’s because that’s why I went into yoga: not for exercise (I was a half-marathon runner when I first started) but to centre and restore myself. I’ve been so unhappy with yoga lately because it just hasn’t been restoring me – all the obligations were dragging me down. Now I know that the type of practice really does matter and I should be doing the types of yoga that speak to me.

3) I made my presentation so that’s off my plate. No more projects due until the end of the month, so this week I plan to take a holiday from yoga teacher training! I’d like to go to yoga, but for me, not from obligation.

4) I’m no longer in suspense about the job. Two of us succeeded in the competition but the job went to the other guy who has been acting in that job for over a year. So I can cross that off my list and just move on. Back to applying for jobs but also trying to network which really does seem to be the only way to go. It was all the maybes that were stressing me out.

Well that’s it for now. My dinner is getting cold and I have some zombies to watch! I just wanted to let you know that things are a lot brighter today. ๐Ÿ™‚
