Finding the Balance between Mind and Body!!

Each morning I wake up (generally before sunrise) with the dilemma (especially now in winter):

Do I lie here snug in my warm bed and enjoy being warm and having quiet time to think? I’m not expected to move or do anything so I can just sink into my thoughts and ruminate about whatever I want to.

Or, do I immerse myself in the fabulous book I’m reading whilst snuggled in bed with my salt lamp on and listening to the birds?

Or, do I get up and do some breathing exercise and yoga? I know that this keeps my body feeling better and I feel I am more productive when I keep my body limber and more supple. I like being able to climb on the ute without thinking “Can I make it up there?”. But this is getting a cooler option as winter sets in.

This is actually me lying in bed dreaming of being able to do this graceful posture - on the beach, when its warm, with the perfect body, perfectly balanced and serene....... Dreaming!!!

Or do I write – my blog, emails, on FB, thoughts, internet surfing? Writing and reading are such fun and a form of relaxation for me that having this mental stimulation is also an appealing option.

Each morning this is my dilemma – and each day I decide  how motivated I feel although when there is an even more spectacular sunrise than usual – when the clouds are dusted with incredible colours – I am more inspired to burst out of bed and do breathing and yoga on the front lawn watching the sunrise and the colours change and getting energised.

I’m finding it a bit challenging to actually get out of bed early as it gets colder. Bed is very enticing – and warm – and comfortable……. Yoga seems like hard work from a warm, comfortable bed – but afterwards it feels fabulous – its just that now and later don’t have the same sensations attached to them – right now.

Hasta pronto……

    • Hey Paul – nice that you have commented. Thanks.

      I’m still wondering if you have made space in your life for opportunities to manifest…….. by recycling all those shirts you said you had?? Your silence indicates lack of action. Yes? No? I now have 4 empty cardboard boxes waiting to be composted and space!! How many so you have?? 🙂

  1. you’re blog page is looking great. i’m finding the balance between working for money and working for love. i have a vision – i can see several boxes full of stuff, kids stuff and my stuff but still sorting at the moment! i’m taking the kids to the movies at 12PM.

    • Thanks for the compliment Paul.

      Take a box with you to drop on the way to the pictures as well. It will create some space for the next one to move!! Enjoy the pictures. It’s raining here – perfect inside/movie kind of day.

  2. It really is the nicest time of day if you don’t have to get up and do anything in particular. One of my favourite things is waking when I am all alone in the house and having that bit of morning all to myself. I always say I am not a morning person…but it feels completely different when I am by myself.

    • Or when its a rainy day and you just “can’t” get out of bed Jackie.

      Sunrise is the best time of the day for me – all that wonderful energy and colour to absorb alone – with the whole universe.
