Mercury is in retrograde people. Which means nothing is right in the world. A bit dramatic... yes... but somewhat accurate. Mercury rules over communication so when it's in retrograde, up is down, left is right, I have zero balance, and my brain is like scrambled eggs. These past few days have been.. not good, to keep it simple. Lots of anxiety and frustration. I have to say that my time on my little mat is the only time when I can really let go of it all.
I can't say that these videos have completely erased the bad energy but they have really calmed me down and helped me to find my breath when I feel a little panic-y.
In day 16 Adriene talks about ocean sounds through your breath. When you achieve it it is so relaxing. The images that flooded my mind of course were the photos I took down by the water over Thanksgiving at my family's home in Boston. Calm and blue. Such a relaxing image. I also held my side plank on both sides! Super exciting. I don't think I've ever done that. Small victory for the day.
Day 17 really grounded me and calmed me this morning before I headed into work. I went to bed early last night but woke up at midnight and mind was racing, stressing, and I couldn't fall back to sleep. I was really glad that I managed to woke up early this morning to partake in day 17. I feel a lot better... my mind clearer.
