We all did it!
We made it to the finish line.
Homeschool with my three kids wasn’t pretty, but they passed all of their subjects (just barely since I had *almost* forgotten to scan my son’s final assignment—shh don’t tell him).
BIG, BIG THANKS to all the educators and support staff who are also finishing up a school year in a way we never imagined. And the parents, students and everyone else:pat yourself on the back for all that you have done in the last 3 months.
You deserve it.
Often at the end of a hard workout I feel the down-on-my-knees, hands-to-the-sky, head-thrown-back raw emotion. I felt that after Shelly’s Pi Yo class last weekend (pro tip: don’t drink the night before) and after lifting with my husband. The final relaxation at the end of a yoga class can also be a moment of celebration, relief, and savoring all in one.
Take a moment now to savor and feel gratitude:
1. What’s one thing that you did in the last three months that you didn’t plan for?
2. How can you feel grateful for the experience or learning that came from it?
3. How can you savor this moment as a step within your path as a growing, ever evolving human being?
More of a journal writer? Try this: Write down three things you are grateful for each night and savor by writing two detailed sentences about the object of gratitude.
Savoring and gratitude are two techniques that help us with our mental well-being. Luckily for us, they are really easy to do with some remembering. Our brains are wired to remember the bad stuff so that we can avoid future threats to our survival. Gratitude is a powerful technique to re-wire the brain toward the positive. And savoring really strengthens those new networks. It’s like holding that deep stretch and knowing it’s doing something great for you!
See you on the mat this week!
