I like to look at my pose and see what's gone wrong. I can then use that along with other indicators such as my mood, exercise and energy levels to assess how I am doing.
I believe there may be several reasons for this:
· Subconscious stress
· Sinus / neck issues
However, I also need to consider that I'm returning to work on Monday and it’s been 4 months since we left school to work from home. Although I am looking forward to returning and seeing all my classes I am also a little apprehensive. During this time, I’ve rarely been in the company of more than 1 or 2 people, We are not entirely sure what post lockdown school will look like and there are lots of unknowns. #stress #anxiety
Now that I've identified the issues I cant really ignore them. Things I'll be doing to address these issues:
Make time every day for physical practise, pranayama and meditation ( there is always enough time for this, it is just a matter of priorities)
Taking more time to breathe into postures, opening the chest and drawing my shoulders back and down.
Healthy eating: avoiding mucus forming foods, eating fresh, whole foods as much as possible and cutting back on sugar
Quality sleep: I will be making sure I have enough time in bed and I’ll avoid screen time in the evening.
