Having a break next week and hopefully exploring caves, caverns and beaches galore (safely!) Hoping that natural remedies and the outdoors rebalances my shifting mood. Grateful for a lie down!

That sounds wonderful! What part of the world are you exploring?

something beautiful to look forward to... and a nap in the present is good, too.

Yoga is helping with inhabiting space without feeling undeserving. Mood isn't great but grateful for a natural and slow side step.

it's a path to peace, beyond the asanas & stretches is a vast and testable body of knowledge

Some irritating side effects- rash, eye itching and headaches but otherwise feeling pretty good. Need to find the fox that's digging up my flowers! Gratitude for this beautiful day including the rain!

Light sensitivity and tinnitus but otherwise well and grounded! Need to prioritise time for my partner - self care has bordered on self indulgent. Grateful for articulation and reasoning... be well :)

guessing your partner will appreciate that.

They do! Thankfully we are naturally very independent people but everyone needs spoiling sometimes. :)

Seeing noticeable changes with my new meds and lots of yoga. Peace and calm is what I need after months of touching both sides of my moods. A break in an endless swim to the other side! Grateful.

yoga, esp as traditionally taught, brings many benefits to both body and mind. Grateful to those who developed and transmitted the science. Grateful that we can enjoy the benefits.

Been working on my mood with yoga, exercise and love. Love is reciprocated when it's gifted to others... at least I think it is. Grateful for the ability to reach calm even if it's brief. :)

Feeling fleeting feelings of love recently. Observing these feelings of hibernation and irritability. Grateful for insight but need action...

Apathy and irritability are simmering under the surface. I can feel it's pressure permeating my thoughts and actions. Grateful for the ability to exercise to release a valve. Breathing positivity in!

exercise, release, the breath, positivity... I would add one more strength or ability to this list: awareness. The self is aware of a simmering irritability. To name it is to tame it.

The self is aware of a simmering something. Observe that the witnessing self can experience the simmering, the arising as an object, as something outside the self. Go deeper into the self, or rather beyond it altogether to that which gives it light

Thanks Love 1, you always give a great insight and/or reflection point. Very grateful for that - I'm sure everyone appreciates it!

Starting on a veggie tajine, side veggie soup and a carrot cake... need the power of Nina to beat this lull. Grateful for payday and choosing to engage with friends. Hope you are all well :)

Got my old boots out and gave rugby another try tonight. Felt good to use my brain and my legs. Grateful for choosing kindness to self and personal boundaries.

Really trying to breathe out patience today. Tinnitus and light sensitivity is weighing heavy... grateful for connection and resilience.

I can't think of words or sentences today - racing thoughts but feeling great. Busy day ahead which I'm grateful for. I saw so much good in people yesterday which was refreshing. Sending joy to you!

Accidentally took my meds at the wrong time yesterday so naturally fell asleep straight after a meeting...during the day... oops. Taking that as a learning experience! Today is filled with sun and joy

You got a good nap in at least

04 Sep 2020

Haha, not a productive day, but wow what a glorious nap!

Today feels like an awkward t-shirt. Not overwhelming but uncomfortable. Grateful for walks in the rain and leftover foods from the night before. Lots of energy just needing direction!
