The monster in the room and its name is coronavirus

The coronavirus is something we hear more about than any other topic, more than the election, more than gossip, just MORE. We get updates from schools, the gym, city officials, friends, family...hand sanitizer is being hoarded, masks are being bought up, mass panic is starting to set in and we are over here thinking, if we got this riled up about just about anything else, we could change the world.

We can do hard things!

The news really, really, really is at an all time low, I mean, if I wanted to hear people yelling and arguing, I can listen to my children tell me why they don’t need showers or to eat green beans. I do not need to listen to adults scream over one another about how they are going to do things better than our current President, or our current President yelling and calling everyone names because he doesn’t want to give up his Throne, I mean Presidency.

What 2020 has taught us thus far!

2020 seems momentous, like we have reached some sort of eerie Sci-Fi pinnacle of life. There is so much technology out there that I can find out what is happening inside my dishwasher, while it is running! I have no idea why I need to know that, but from an app, I can literally get an update on what quadrant is currently being cleaned. Why I would ever need to know that is beyond me, but my friends, this is where we are at in the year 2020.

Support is necessary

I love doing Yoga, but I am not one of those Gumby Yogis or Yoginis on Instagram, I need blocks at times, or a chair, blankets, straps, I do my best, but often I need a little assistance. I can get a bit down at times because I want to just bound into a pose, but that isn’t how my body operates and that is something I have had to learn to be okay with. I can only keep practicing and slowly, oh so very slowly, changes are made, a little more flexibility, a little more strength, better form, a more complete expression of a pose and so on.

Remember, you matter too

I was talking to a neighbour today that I don’t often get the chance to talk to. We used to when our kids were younger, but as a mom/caretaker I get it, our time is severely limited to short interactions with other adults outside work or working out. In fact our face time had to do with her needing a workout mat and I had one I needed to get rid of! I was having a Marie Kondo moment and decided I didn’t in fact need several mats as I was the only one using them!
