No, I’m not practicing telekinesis, Kyle, I’m practicing clearing my mind of all things. And yoga is helping!

As I have mentioned, I’m striving to master the art of clearing the clutter from my brain and letting go of all the thoughts and anxieties that usually form a fairly constant parade through my mind. This week at yoga, I really felt like I’m making progress. I experienced several periods of what could have been actual minutes where I wasn’t distracted by other things and was able to just concentrate on my breathing. It was awesome! Of course, it’s baby steps on the way to mindfulness, but it’s progress and I’ll take it for now. Gracie does a really nice job of helping remind us that it’s natural to have this kind of struggle and that more often than not, there will be thoughts that try to distract you. (For anyone in the Mount P area, I highly recommend OmBodies yoga studio!) I’m going to have to miss next week’s session due to an out of town obligation and I will really miss that part of my weekend routine. I’ll be back to it the following week, though. I also heard about a meditation studio in town called Just Be and they have sessions for people of all skill levels, so that’s something I’m considering as well. I’m not at the point where I can clear my mind in other settings very well yet, but that’s a good goal. It would be nice to be able to do a soft reboot when I’m feeling stressed or overwhelmed. Now if only OmBodies started a D&D yoga class
