Some of the goodies that I've got last weekend at the food market 🌱 all veggies are Irish and organic from @mcnallyfamilyfarm - artisanal cheese from @corleggycheeses - goat sausages from @broughgammonfrm

#FindYourWinterZen Day 9, #wildthingpose This #asana used to both scare and intimidate me to all get out! Really any posture requiring me to trust both the strength and #flexibility of my upper back and neck were shaky at best. Turns out the trust issue wasn’t with my body, but with my brain.
Having #chronicillness creates a pain cycle for many who deal with it, conscious of it or not. I believe Comprehensive care of oneself absolutely includes #mentalhealth Seeking counseling has been a game changer for me-specifically with a #painpsychologist .This specialist deals with underlying & resultant traumas, the vicious pain/anxiety/fear/stress/pain-“flee or freeze” cycle, teaches release, mindfulness, meditation & self-care techniques. Most importantly, this specific Doc can help address the negative #selftalk going on in your head. Again, one might not even be aware of the weight and girth of their own thought process until they are spilled out wholly, unfiltered, in a safe space ALOUD. We THINK we hear ourselves...but,
Do you really know how you sound when you say what you are thinking? It’s easy to discount these thoughts as less-than or meaningless because no one hears them but us.
The reality is, the only ears that truly matter are our own. The voice we are listening to the most belongs to us.
Soften your tone, ease your pace, slow down gently to whisper.
Make a #gratitude list. The first 5 things that come to mind- for today, THIS moment! ⚡️✨⚡️
Now put a reminder on your phone to do that every day! First thing in the morning, late at night...whenever suits you best!
Slant these vibes up and out, y’all!
I place the crown of wisdom upon my heart with #compassion for hate; hate for myself- for my body, for my illnesses; sending healing compassion for the world full of hate. Hateful of beauty and life and innocence.
Peace to myself, healing light warms my heart. ✨♥️
This light in my heart bows to the light in your heart. ♥️⚡️

Woke up today a little sore from staying in bed sick yesterday. I wish I would have gotten up to stretch at least. I regret that. It was hard finding my balance this morning. Either wayyy, it is a new day. I'm giving my body some well deserved TLC. Water, meditation, yoga, fruit, & green tea so far. Looking forward to feeling better. 🌱
