I'm sitting in the sun, pausing from my day to blog. What am I doing to support my sobriety today is a question I have in my head because I saw it in my Twitter feed.
While I haven't really thought of one thing I do to support my sobriety each day, maybe I can do that today. I need motivation to go to my yoga class tonight, I should do it for my sobriety! Leaving the house at dinner time or when it is dark to go do exercise is always so hard. It's so much more enticing to eat a plate of food while watching the new Game Of Thrones episode.
This pause is to remember the power of yoga to channel together my emotions, thoughts and physicality. It is a practice that needs to be done habitually, and it's been over a week. Maybe tonight will help me tap back into that space where I'm a bit more raw. I feel like that place has scabbed over with my vacation but I know it is not healed. Time to dig around in there again.
Yoga it is for tonight. Thank you sobriety, for the reminder to step into the uncomfortable and seek the benefits that wait there for me there.
