#Reverb14 | Prompt for December 9
It has been said that you must learn to take care of yourself before you can be effective at taking care of others. How did you take care of yourself in 2014? How will you take care of yourself in 2015?
I feel like this is the lesson that I learned in 2014.
My body knows what it needs. I’ve just had to learn how to listen.
Exhausted? I need to sleep.
Hungry? I need to eat.
Full? I need to stop eating.
Antsy? I need to move.
Curious? I need to learn.
Overwhelmed? I need to rest.
But I’ve learned that it doesn’t stop there.
Anxious? I need to clean house. Organizing my space helps clear my head.
Discouraged? I need to create.
Negative about my body? I need to get on my yoga mat.
Stressed about money? Go through the car wash. There’s just something about an automatic car wash that creates a feeling of luxury.
I don’t always listen, but I’m getting better.
I am working through the process of notice, respect, respond. And I’m starting with myself.
I’m super excited to offer this yoga class to you! We’ll spend an hour together processing 2014 and grounding for 2015. We do this process so often with words, but this year, you could experience this process through movement. Register for Courageous Foundation by December 29th (either option!) and receive this video class free on New Year’s Eve!
