Doctor’s Orders and Meditation

As I mentioned in my previous post, I tweaked my back last night. I don’t know exactly what caused it. I’ve been known to throw my back out every once in a while so I don’t think it was the working out. Anyway I went to my fabulous chiropractor this morning and after he adjusted me he told me to take it easy. So Sadly I had to cancel my bringing back the 90’s yoga class.

Day 5: Meditation. But I can’t just leave it at that. I had to do something today to keep my momentum going. I settled on a short guided meditation from my YogaGlo app. If you haven’t heard of YogaGlo I highly recommend it. It’s an endless video library of yoga and meditation classes with a stellar search and filtering system.

Anyway this was a guided meditation specifically for parents and specifically for the end of the day. I don’t do much meditation but I figured it would be the perfect thing for calming down at the end of the day. I have to say, I almost cried. The teacher started talking about how children’s energy is different from adults. It made me think of my kids and how they’re growing up too fast (yet sometimes not fast enough) and how much I take their frantic child energy for granted.

So even though I wasn’t sweating and burning calories today, I feel like I got something out of this practice.
