I practised early this morning because I’m finally, *finally* getting into the routine of waking at 6 a.m. again.
The afternoon naps help a LOT. I’ve been taking a nap nearly every afternoon at 3:00, whether it’s a heavy teaching day or not. I never sleep for long, just 30 minutes tops. But I feel so much better in the evening and it’s *much* easier to get up in the morning.
I’ve been meditating in the mornings and recently, I noticed that I no longer have issues with falling asleep during my meditation. I hadn’t made the connection before, but I wonder if the afternoon naps are helping me stay alert in meditation?
Whatever the case, it’s working for me. I joyfully sing the praises of a career that allows me to nap regularly. I’m so blessed!
I switched things up and used the Sharath Led Primary CD for my practice this morning. I wasn’t feeling particularly bendy, but I was able to bind in Supta Kurmasana all the same. I guess that bind is here to stay.
Halfway through my practice, the sun came out for the first time in about a week and I basked in sunbeams all the way through my seated poses. I could practically feel the Vitamin D tapdancing on my cells. Sweet sunlight!
