What is Yoga 308

Life is a constant struggle of balancing our body on both a physical and emotional side. Through yoga I have learned several life lessons. Yoga 308 is a goal I set for myself to do at least 60 minutes of yoga for 6 days a week for the next year. I invite anyone to join me on this adventure as I blog about some of my daily experiences. This is not intended to show that I have found peace and tranquility, but rather give my honest feelings of my journey. Enjoy.

Day 162 - Still Sick

I am still sick with a cough that has pretty much knocked me on my butt.  I have slept since 2:00 yesterday and still have this hacking cough.  It is really annoying to me.  I am missing my first day of yoga since beginning yoga308. 

Being in bed has given me a very settling feeling.  For the first time I do not feel like I have to do much of anything.  My body officially has taken over and has told my mind to stop.  So while I stop, I do not have much to worry about.  Just focusing on getting myself better. 

I have been having some crazy dreams while being sick.  There were these pieces of a block all scattered amongst my bed which I was trying to pick up.  I knew that these pieces were of me.  I was trying to pick up these pieces to reconstruct me.  It is so true in so many ways right now.

It is strange that I have been sick every day in 2013.  Makes me wonder what healthy feels like again.  I have not gotten this sick for a long time.  I think yoga is a strong part of keeping me healthy, but this is proof that we are still human.  We still have mental challenges as well as physical challenges that we will go through.
