Eating (decently) healthy
I really can’t believe how awesome a regular yoga practice has been to my mental health. I also feel myself relaxing when I’m in a flow/restorative/or regular class. My muscles don’t tighten up as much like your body does if it’s in a constant state of stress (like mine was) and it’s helping improve my flexibility in my hamstrings SO MUCH (but I still have a ham of a way to go). The breathing is like a form of meditation to me and DON’T SKIP THE SHAVASANA!! It helps so much and I get so in tune with myself. It’s like meditation before and after my yoga session.
2 – Journalling
I’ve been trying really hard to get better into this practice on the daily, but it still gets difficult. Whenver I’m having a hard time or start getting anxiety induced thoughts (like what I’m wearing in my engagement photos in 3 degree weather won’t look good in our photos) I need to stop and take a step back, allow myself to have these feelings and then just drop it, which journalling helps. Or by starting to be more grateful in your journalling which is something I’ve been trying to accomplish with my rant-ful entries.
