So this week has been very up and down for me, on a low point I had a two day migraine where I felt so sick and dizzy I just rested and could really do nothing else. The picture included in this post was from day two when Gizmo was giving me so many kisses to help me feel better and strangely it did! He stayed with me all the time and looked after me like a good little doggy.
The day after I felt tired but I had to admit I was sick of the illnesses I have beating me! Since the beginning of this year I have been struggling to control my depression, my fatigue has become significantly worse and those two things together mean that I have not been able to keep up with my life.
I am sick of not being able to practice yoga and meditation every day, it has left me with tighter and more cramped muscles and with less of a positive mood. All of these things have left me not feeling myself and that is so not something I want to bring to 2017.
So I am now committed to practicing yoga every other day, and meditating for 5 minutes daily until I can get back to a point where my brain is not constantly busy. I am also going to do housework on the days that I do not do yoga and I have set up a weekly routine for my online time too. As someone with a chronic illness I have found that unless I plan and organise myself and my time I end up with not enough energy and just sitting like a blob on the sofa feeling useless.
So as I look ahead to a new and better year I hope that I can build on who I am today and be the best person I can be every day.
