Body Talk – Are you listening?
Did you know that our bodies actually try to communicate with us? We body workers call it Body Wisdom.
Well, I have to tell you, after the stress of these past few months when I’ve had to focus on work (sitting in front of a computer) – not just for YogaHub but for other businesses as well – my body is not happy with me.
Nope. It is actually very, very irritated at me – to the point where it has chosen to let me know through various aches and pains. Oh yes, suddenly my hips twinge, my shoulder blades feel like I am carrying 50 extra pounds, my legs and feet are cramping, my neck does not have full motion…the list goes on. You think it’s time for me to listen?
It’s interesting how I come from the field of healing arts, and yet find it easier to take care of others before healing myself. This is right up there with the old saying, “the shoemaker’s children don’t have any shoes.”
So I truly need to start not only listening to my body but actually doing something about this. It’s much too painful.
I have to tell you, when I did a simple “Mountain Pose” stretch towards the sky the other day, it felt awesome!
So, Downward Facing Dogs – I’m back.
