Yoga to get out of bed

Hello, all –

I found this post on Tumblr, and I’m so in love with it that I had to share. Enjoy!

“So you’re in bed. You’re snug. You’re cosy. You don’t want to get out ever! But here’s 9 yoga poses to help your sleepy self get up.
1. Savasana- just chill for a bit and breath deeply and enjoy that sun streaming in
2. Cobra- stretch that back like the crazy cat you are
3. Extended child’s pose- now stretch your back the other way. Your covers come off too. Magic!
4. Camel pose- now sit on your knees and throw your arms back to your toes like some sort of shawshank redemption prison break.
5. Forward bend- now stand up on those sexy pins and try not to fall off the bed
6. Pigeon pose- almost there. Are you smiling yet? You should be you sexy minx bird of paradise
7. Seated forward fold- touch your toes! Wiggle them and giggle at your cuteness
8. Kneeling side plank variation- stretch that delish body of yours and try not to blind yourself at how radiant you are
9. Meditation- don’t think just yet. Just enjoy that beautiful stillness

Now step off that cosy bed of yours and sashay the fuck out of bed. Namaste.”

Reasons to Recover: Day 8

Flaws are what distinguish us from one another.  Without them, our world would be so bland.

Embrace yours. Be you.

Reasons to Recover – Day 7

Hello, loves –

I’ve been absent lately, and I apologize for that.  The holiday and my job have kept me busy.

I had the chance to go home last week, and I really, really enjoyed it.  A place that is often the source of anxiety for me became surprisingly therapeutic. There were no disagreements, arguments, or conflicts, only love.

Times like that are worth the recovery. My family is worth the fight.

The first snowfall of the year in Buffalo, NY. So calming.

Reasons to Recover: Day 5

I go to a very small university in the middle of nowhere.

A student passed away today and we are all feeling the loss. It’s hard losing one of your own.

There have been times where I would give anything to stop existing. Today reminded me to cherish the life I’ve been given. It can be taken away so quickly.

Find the strength to get better. Find a way to enjoy existing. Life is too damn short to be sad all the time.
