Sunday Yoga Day 5: Feel Alive

This session couldn’t come at a better time. So I decided that I wanted to try these sessions consecutively and see how I felt a few days after but this will be up on a Sunday since I like that schedule and I’m trying to come up with more ideas for posts. So for the past few nights, I’ve actually been having terrible sleep. On Monday, I was sleeping and while I was dreaming that I was in water, I woke up gasping and choking. I couldn’t breathe and I was really freaked out. I thought I was going to die. I talked to my sister later and told me that I probably had a panic attack while sleeping. On Tuesday, I also had disruptive sleep. I woke up because my phone randomly started playing music and I had a hard time falling asleep after that. I’m going to keep track go my sleeping pattern for the next few weeks because I woke up around 2am both nights. If anyone knows more about it, let me know or share your experiences that you might have had that could help me understand more. I don’t want to go to a doctor just yet because I’m not sure if it’s a pattern.

The video for day 5 is on feeling alive. What kind of coincidence is that? The one day I’m super tired, the theme is feeling alive. I chuckled at this because it was a good session for me before I went off to volunteering.

Before my session:

I was feeling groggy, grumpy, bloated and really tired. I also woke up with tightness in the trapezius area because I also keep coughing a lot at night which adds to the disruption of proper sleep. I always have this problem when I cough or sneeze, I usually end up pulling a muscle so I’m hoping to relieve that tension.

During my session:

For someone who was super tired, I felt in-sync with every movement and breath, I was super focused on just being in that moment.

After my session:

I was left wanting more. I wanted to do another 20 minutes of it but I had to get ready to go. I think if I get time tomorrow before my christmas dinner, I want to squeeze a session and feel nice, tall and relaxed.
