Brain Balance– How are you managing you most valuable commodity?
It has been a wild ride these last few weeks. I have traveled to 7 cities in 8 weeks in addition to having a sister who has stage four cancer and a 93-year-old father who has decided he wants to take back the managing of his finances. Also throw in a wasp nest, a web guy who you can’t call “a master” who missed changing my email link with PayPal, which means no sales because they all go out into the abyss. Ahhhh, Thank God for the breath. I know that I am not the only one with a few challenges these days. What to do?
It is time to know that we all are a mixture of dark and light. It’s all about where you put your time and energy to build, define, and refine. What helps us do that is to balance. It needs to be fast. These days, we can’t take hours anymore. We need to change our energetic states on the spot.
Actually, there is the full-length version: What you do first thing in the AM – how you arise sets your day, your mindset, and your connections. What do you do during the day to rejuvenate yourself and to bring yourself back to neutral, non-reactive?
After 40 years of teaching yoga and meditation, doing healing work, running businesses, and building communities I have a few tricks to share. Are you open to utilizing them?
- I keep my yoga mat next to my desk so that I can take mini yoga breaks during the day.
- I exercise every day; a 30-minute swim or rollerblade plus I do some yoga every day.
- I pay attention and eat when I am hungry; some days I eat very little and other days I graze all day.
- What I eat is as important as when and how, what do you need to be eating?
- Alkaline is all that it is pumped up to be. It keeps you young and alive. What is alkaline? Google it.
- Sometimes a moving meditation will balance your brain, and connect your head with your heart.
Hunched over your desk, not breathing is not a way of life. It is a way of death. Are you dying? What are you doing to live? My father asked me today, “What are you doing to have fun?” I realized while telling him the things I was doing in the next few days that I love most of what I get to do and who I get to do it with. This is the life I want for each of you.
I will not promise that if you do this you will never get tired again but you will have more energy because you are source connected. It is the key to co-creation.
Connect first thing in the morning and keep bringing yourself back to that connected state. Try this for reconnection.
Three Part Forward Bend: The Brain Fountain of Youth
Stand with your legs wide open. The stiffer you feel, the wider you should spread the legs. Bend over and place the fingertips on the floor right under the shoulders. Bend the knees if necessary. When inhaling, lift the trunk of your body and your head parallel to the floor. Exhale in three-parts, lowering head and trunk towards the floor in three equal parts for 1-2 minutes.
Gift: This pumping motion activates the spinal fluid up and down the spine and through the brain. Allows your legs and spine to stretch. The enhanced breath helps release overwhelming feelings.
Then let me know how this work for you. Love to know that you are doing this to get your real energy.
What will I ___________________________________________ say yes to, to balance my brain today and every day? This is my promise to my world and myself.
