You are following a wellness path through your body and have slowly moved up from your feet and into your mind.
The yoga asana have worked on strengthening and regaining flexibility in your lower body and up into your chest. We are now on the final physical practices, your neck and shoulders. Which are directly related to tension and thus stress in your mind. There is marma therapy to explore of the face and neck if you haven't already. I'll guide you to classes in your next "chapter" or chakra. Marma therapy is yoga massage and pressure points and is particularly beneficial for the mind.
But for now enjoy the beautiful yoga asana that open the throat, improve thyroid function and help you find your "true" voice.
Most of us feel we have not enough time, that we are too busy, but often it is only our minds that are busy. It's sad to see how much children now sit, hunched over a screen. Is this you too? Is it time to do a technology detox? You'll find your mind will quieten and you'll start watching nature, the sky, cloud patterns, hear the bird song, smell the roses.
Another way to clear your mind, is to clean and clear your home. This is an important detox too.
You might struggle with boredom and busy thoughts, that's good, take yourself out walking.... slowly. Practice yoga or any other exercise that moves your body slowly, including house "work." Live in your body, not in your head.
Over time you'll feel calmer and more peaceful.
Make space for relaxation. Create a space for relaxation. Get rid of your clutter
We keep our minds busy with books, technology, planning, the past, the future and we miss now.
Our minds want entertainment
or should I say distraction?
