A brilliant day today.
I did my meditation, stretching and yoga this morning - and I'm finding that the yoga is really pushing me.
I'm noticing that my natural posture is pretty rubbish and that just holding myself to be head over heart, heart over pelvis is a challenge! I get tired in my back just holding this position!
However, although it was a looooong time ago, I think my body remembers some of my old martial arts training, as I find the Warrior positions easier than the others - thank goodness SOMETHING doesn't feel totally alien!
I still have a bit of a cough and am aware of tightness in my chest, so didn't go out walking today, but was generally more active and went dancing, so I achieved my steps target and did 6,260.
I've realised that if I try to do mega numbers of steps every day, I won't have time for strength and flexibility, let alone work and everything else, so I'm letting go of the need to do more steps every day.
I also had my first EFT session today to reduce the level of fear attached to some of my experiences with heights. This is really interesting. One of my experiences was around getting onto a cable car in Gibraltar years ago, and I had to walk across an elevated bridge, walk down some steps forcing me to look down and then step across a large gap to get into the cable car. When I did this, I was so traumatised, I hyper-ventilated and when I finally got into the cable car, even though it was crowded, I buried my head in my then husband's chest and sobbed all the way back down the mountain! I'm learning to look at this experience without re-living the fear.
I'm also looking at pushing out of my comfort zones in other areas too. Like joining new dance classes, even though I don't know anyone and can't even speak the language.
