I hope your Thanksgiving holiday was delightful and fun, with a healthy dose of yum! Ours was lovely–a good balance of family, friends, and good conversation while eating the feast Nick prepared. (I’m the prep cook and decorator/table setter, which suits me just fine.)
Lucky for me I’m fairly extroverted, which gives me a broad bandwidth for chit chat and the high volume that comes with a room full of people. But I have to admit, my bandwidth has decreased post-Covid. I find myself daydreaming of my jammies way earlier than I did three years ago, and I know it’s not just a natural aging progression. It’s a nervous system that’s out of shape for marathons of social engagement.
Thankfully, we have tools for this. I believe we can get back to pre-Covid party tolerance, if that is indeed what we want to do. Either way, I think these three things will help the most in navigating our way back to balance...
Happy Thanksgiving week! My favorite holiday of the year is finally here. In Online Yoga Membership (OYM) we have been practicing gratitude all month in a way I wanted to share with you today.
What does gratitude look like through the lens of the chakras? Maybe you can take a moment and consider these for yourself, or share them with someone you celebrate with.
Looking over the last year, what are you thankful for in regards to:
Abundance. How have you been blessed in your material world?
Release. What is something you let go of this year that has been a relief to you?
Power. Is there a power or strength within you that you woke up to this year?
Relationships. Who has come into your life that you are so happy to have?
Voice. What meaningful conversations did you have this year that you hope to remember for years to come?
Connection: What is a connection you made this year, with someone else or within...
