In so many moments during the last dew days I've stopped and felt gratitude, love, peace, enthusiam and inspiration. A week ago I felt the opposite. Almost for one whole month. What has changed so radically: my level of stress.
I came back in the middle of nature, I got many works with deadlines done and I took a lot of time to practice yoga and meditation, sleeping well and the nutrition for my body. I took time to also be alone and I know I can (if I want to) stay in one place for a while. Mind-body-spirit. They all come together.
I see healthy in a holistic way and for me stress is the most challenging thing to keep positive. When I'm really stressed it's harder to take care of my other healthy habits. Even if at that time I would need them the most. When I'm not stressed and busy I eat well, do a lot of yoga and meditate, take time to be in the middle of nature and read books, which makes me happy. But the problem is when a stressful period lasts too long, balance disappears and burning out becomes a threat.
I think it's funny how people many times think that those who are into yoga are so calm. I'm here doing yoga because my head has so much going on all the time. I love yoga, because it makes me happy, it always gives me balance, it makes me more gentle towards myself in life. I'm still learning to practice yoga and meditate also when my mind is the very busy and the most confused, when at first it's totally impossible to focus on my breath. But I'm getting there, I will learn. ❤
