So, I broke a toe as summer was ending. And this little piggy has been slow healing. My podiatrist outfitted me with some killer soft shoe fashion footwear - the kind you won’t see on the Paris runways. 😂
Lucky for me, I’m not the kind of woman dying to get back into a pair of heels. What I am is a woman learning to be more patient because “Why is this not healed already???” 🤷🏾♀️ and “Ain’t nobody got time for that!”
Looking for the lesson in the moment, I’ve used this opportunity to dive deeper into my study and practice of energy healing modalities which I’ve neglected for too long. The Universe never fails to remind us of what’s important when we get off track, now does it? 😊
In this experience of limping, hobbling and healing, I’ve also learned to pay even greater attention to how my body feels and how it moves. I’ve noticed how an uneven gait disrupts the comfort in my hips and lower back, and how the muscles in my legs, hips and glutes compensate for the lack of flexion in my toes. 👣
One thing I love about yoga is that it teaches us to be more aware of our bodies. And this awareness allows us to better care for our bodies and to be more present in the moment which brings greater peace, joy and contentment into our lives.
So, how is your body feeling today? Is it tight, sore, painful? Could it use more care, energy, relaxation or pain relief? Yoga can help provide all these things and more. And now is the perfect time to treat yourself to better health!
