Sitting Bull

Can you sit still?

I can’t. I mean I can sit, but I can’t stay for long.  I want to crawl out of my skin and do something. I have lists you know!

I tried to slow down today and did. I sat, but my brain had other plans. I was like a sitting bull, just waiting to attack.

I literally need help. And not just from  a chiropractor. or a masseuse.

My brain doesn’t turn off. I feel bad for my family because I have so many ideas to share and plans for us to do things together. I probably drive them crazy!

I admire people who can sit at home and read a book. I always think I should be doing something else and my mind starts doing flip flops.

I need to practice putting my phone down, keeping my hands still and just being.   Maybe I’ll have to practice for 3 minutes with nothing to do and then move up from there?  This is probably what they mean by being present and in the moment and here I thought I was doing it right. I need mindfulness and meditation and some yoga!

Geez – I have a lot to learn.

How was your day? Can you sit still? What do you like to do? Got any tips for me?

  1. Putting that phone down is the 1st thing. I get tires off all the things we have to respond to on our phone. This is the 1st I’ve looked a mine in 2 days. Being in the moment is really important. This is a great opportunity you have to slow down with your neck acting up. XO.

  2. I enjoy sitting still. I like to put my feet up and watch my recorded shows, or read a magazine or book. I enjoy when the house is very quiet. On Sunday morning, I make a very large cup of coffee, bake a trader joes chocolate croissant and watch Sunday Morning(recorded) all by myself. It’s one of my favorite parts of the week!
