Hi everyone. I hope this finds you enjoying your Wednesday. I’m itching to get outside and play in the garden later tonight. What are you looking forward to? I have a few theme posts for you this week–writing that seems to center around becoming active instead of stuck. And I have a few posts in the grab-bag category as well.
I smiled internally as I read Leo Babauta’s description of the “three-day monk” phenomenon of trying to initiate change. It resonated with me, and so did his suggestions for changing that pattern.
In a similar vein, Anna Guest-Jelley explored how trying to establish a home yoga practice often looked a lot like trying to be on a diet–and why both patterns needed change to be sustainable.
Candice Roe was a guest writer for Rosie Molinary’s blog this week. I thought that her reflections about what past pain means to her now were incredibly powerful.
From Dr. Elisha Goldstein, here are nine simple suggestions for reconnecting with the wonder and enjoyment of daily life–by pushing back against routine.
And from Linda Esposito, this touching reflection both the power of doing self care by meeting our core biological needs to breathe and rest–and the painful consequences that can result when those needs aren’t met.
That’s what I’ve got for you this week. Any resources to share? I’d love to see them.
