How are you? How's your stress level? How's your focus, creativity, inspiration? If any of this is landing in an OMG I don't want to entertain these questions kind of way, I am for sure talking directly to you.
Life these days can get to be too much. However, if you're feeling overwhelmed, without enough energy, and running low on patience & productivity, ask yourself 'how's my sleep?' There you will find a big clue to how you're feeling and functioning day to day.
In our culture a phrase is often thrown around, "You can sleep when you're dead." Welp, I am here to say without sleep you can feel like the walking dead. I don't recommend not sleeping as your aspiration; it's really not so noble. The grind, burning the midnight oil, crushing it, killin' it, nose to the grindstone, putting in blood/sweat/tears & the like are simply not sustainable and can actually be harmful to your long-term health and wellbeing.
Over the next four weeks, we are going to focus on restorative practices such as Yin and Yoga Nidra, both forms of yoga that will help us sleep better. We will take small steps and tool up on tips & techniques that can support more restful nights and more hopeful, inspired days.
Yours in ease and zzzzz's,
