Reflections – 04.26.2022

Ever since I’ve been back from Cuba, I’ve been trying my best to keep up with some good habits that I finally managed to start: Waking up early, writing in my journal first thing in the morning, and doing some yoga.

Somewhere near the end of last week though, something shifted and I had trouble falling asleep one night. That shifted my routine to waking up later, and my first instinct was to skip something. Sometimes it was writing in my journal, and sometimes the yoga. And for the first time this morning, I didn’t even get out of bed until 11 am. I made sure to at least practice yoga today, but it didn’t help much. I couldn’t bring myself to do anything productive today.

All this is to say that I need to remember not to skip things just because I missed doing one thing. So, even if I wake up late, I’ll be keeping up with my journaling and yoga. Daily. Hopefully, that’ll help me get back to waking up early again – something that I’ve really enjoyed.

Three things I’m grateful for:

– Good friends who are there for you even if you don’t ask them to be.
– The healing nature of the most delicious noodles from Chop Chop.
– Not having anyone to answer to.

One thing I need to work on:

– Staying active
