After the heated busyness of the past summer months, I'm finding myself slowing down significantly. I'm finding it a bit harder to get started, to get projects going, to be up and alert and ready in the morning. After flirting with the idea on and off for, honestly, many years, I'm beginning a cleanse to help see me through this inner and seasonal transition time. It's a gentle and practical premise, with a simplified diet and self-care.
No missing-coffee headaches, yet, but I am definitely feeling my body begin to shift in its mechanics, and I'm trying my best to be patient with it. I've been trying to do yoga, if not every day, at least several times a week (yogaglo at home; the people's yoga for a community vibe); this morning's class was the first time I actually felt depleted, rather than invigorated, after a practice. But, this is a rare time for me, in which I'm not working outside the home, and so I can, in theory, allow my body the time and space to make this transition...
Truthfully, I think I'm feeling a bit surprised by autumn in general this year, not quite ready for it, not quite grounded in it. And I've always been ready for autumn.
Love to you,
PS: We just made a family-vetted list of shows the boys can watch (we've been having... a challenging experience with show-viewing lately), and now they're all curled up with season one of the Muppet Show. And giggling.
