Part2:

As far as my Yoga routine, I fall in and out of it like anything else. I have noticed that when my vibration is low I tend to stop doing all of the things that are good for me, it’s like this vicious negative cycle that I constantly have to work on. But man when I’m vibrating at a high frequency, I feel great I’m doing ALL the things to keep my energy up as well as my attitude. It’s really easy to not follow through with an exercise routine because of life right? I’m a grandma, and unless I wake up super early in the morning when my grand-daughter sees me doing yoga she wants to join in. At first, this seemed counter-productive to me, then I found the humor in it and started making videos. “Yoga with Toddlers”. So I’d like to share a short time-lapse video that shows this amusing yoga routine we started. (Don’t mind my sesame street fleece pants, yes I live in them) I love that I can introduce her to healthy ways of living at such an early age. I think this is very important, and really wish I had the knowledge I do now when my own kids were younger. My tips on Yoga with Toddlers? Don’t stress about following along with your videos to a T. Enjoy the process and know that you’re setting an example and making an impression that will last a lifetime. Make it fun! I found some awesome Yoga videos on Amazon Prime, even though they are geared towards kids, it still gives me a workout. Cosmic Kids is my favorite so far!

MEDITATION

Of course, you can’t have Yoga in your life without Meditation, am I right? It just seems like it goes hand in hand. Meditation looks different to everyone and really has no rules. You don’t have to sit in silence and be transported to another dimension to have a successful meditation session. You don’t have to pay tons of money to attend group meditations or wear white linen outfits. Not at all! Meditation can be as simple as taking a bath in candlelight, sitting quietly in a park listening to the sounds of nature, reading your favorite book while snuggled up on the couch with your cat, or dog. My meditation journey has seen all of the above and then some. I’ve had some deep meditations listening to Chakra healing music where I’ve actually been in a such a relaxing state that I thought I had fallen asleep, yet I was still aware of what was going on around me. And I’ve also had sessions where I couldn’t stop the chatter inside my head for the life of me so I would just end up having an entire conversation with myself. Either way, it went I still took that time to sit with myself and that’s all that really matters in the end. So don’t get caught up in what you think meditating should look like and just take a moment to sit with yourself and give yourself time to relax. We’ve all heard about the amazing benefits meditating has on our health and brain function, the statistics and science are unmistakable.

Now I want to get into something that I find so fascinating! I have always been the creative type that stayed up super late working on my art projects. I felt like I worked better at night and most of my best ideas came in those bewitching hours. If you’re an Artist of any sort, you know exactly what I’m talking about! While this didn’t provide me with the best sleep, it’s how I functioned for almost three years. Recently I (past six months or so) noticed that I was waking up before my alarm, which was usually set for 7:30am. I had stopped staying up past 11pm and would usually go to sleep between 9-10pm. Over time instead of forcing myself to stay up to finish a project, I would put it away and take my happy ass to bed around 9pm. Needless to say, I felt like an old lady! I realized all those years forcing myself to stay up was my way of rebelling against getting older. For whatever reason, an early bedtime to be related directly with old age. Am I the only one who feels this way or can you relate? So it got to a point where I would wake up in the morning, peek out my bedroom window overlooking the beautiful mountains and be able to guess what time it was based on how the shadow of the sun looked on the mountains. I would grab my phone and see that my guess was spot on! It sort of became a game I played, that made me feel like some sort of psychic or something. It didn’t dawn on me that what was happening, was my body was getting in tune to my circadian rhythm. From that moment on, the guilt I felt from retiring to bed early with my cuppa tea was gone. I had been functioning with an unbalanced circadian rhythm most of my life, which yes is actually a thing. It’s called circadian rhythm disorder. Curiosity caught this cat and I started going down the rabbit hole of research. I was fascinated, to say the least! Here’s a great reference site to give you a brief overview if you would like more information on this subject.
