We as humans tend to over think things, we assume things, we have a million and one thoughts.
What we should be doing is taking time for ourselves, our own thoughts, get to know yourself and know how to relax yourself so you don’t become enraged with negativity.
We are all human, we are in this together. We all have our minds all over the place. Just breathe and stay still for a moment. Take time for yourself. You need this time and your mind and body and spirit will thank you.
Even if it’s 5 min a day - you will notice a difference. Trust the universe. 🌟 everything comes at the right time - whether you believe it or not.
True facts! MG’ers, & I am positive other autoimmuners, have to take extra care of ourselves and keep our emotions balanced because even being overly excited can trigger a flare up!😜
.example— the day of my masters graduation 2 years ago, I was OVER THE MOON for obvious reasons. As a result, my medication had an adverse reaction prior to lining up for our March! I can remember texting my sister that I couldn’t open my mouth bc it felt as if a magnet kept my jaws together from all of my muscles overreacting😅
Once I breathed & found my center, my body returned to homeostasis. .
It’s all about finding BALANCE, even with our emotions. .
Yoga & meditation help me do that! △follow link in bio to see how meditation & mindfulness helped balance my life :) what helps you find balance?
In his book Practical Zen, Daizan Roshi tells us that 'the scientific research looking at our learning and development processes claims that for human beings it takes about 10,000 hours of practice to achieve mastery.' I am mindful of this as I sit in zazen (seated meditation) but I am undaunted by the reality that for most of us this level of mastery will not be achieved-normal life gets in the way and takes up our precious time. Hence I use every opportunity to find a still quiet place within me: guerrilla meditation- any place, any time 🙏🏼✨
Foot finally over head 😁 #yoga •
I used to hate yoga because I didn't get it but now I love traditional #bikram yoga. It resets my spine & posture and helped me learn to breathe. When I get stressed, I stop breathing or hold my breath, which just makes your body more stressed out! If you have the same problem I highly recommend #meditation or yoga to slow down & learn to #breathe!!! #runyon#runyoncanyon#yogapose#bikramyoga#setandflow
