The super moon rising over the West Maui Mountains. Looking up and out--rather than down.
Even though we are surrounded by natural beauty, I've spent too much time looking down at my phone this weekend. So much time since Wednesday that my upper back and neck are hunched and sore. Inspired by this article I read this afternoon, I'm adding these yoga poses to my daily practice in an effort to correct it and open my heart. And I'm trying to remember to look forward and not down.
During my week (almost) away from (compulsively checking) social media, I was more productive and more focused. I finished things; I cooked; and I took good care of myself. Since Tuesday, I've been unproductive, scattered, and tense. I will continue to read the news--but through my own filter rather than that of my friends and acquaintances. I also set my watch to remind me to breathe every 3 hours--during those breaks I will breath and stretch and continue opening all those messed up muscles.
Who's with me?
