Somehow, someway, in the busiest moments, when I should feel tired beyond belief, I appreciate the adrenaline and stress. It's all that keeps me humming along! Then again, coming back down from that place is tough. This past week I received a Vital Juice email about an energy healer and her breathing exercises... even just reading about their experience with her relaxed me.
Gosh, pretty soon I'm going to be as blissful and meditative as a monk ;). On that same token, when I was at the running peak it had a similar effect on me. While I was living abroad my favorite time of day to run was in the stillness of sunrise when the cities didn't feel intimidating, or even foreign, as each day brought exploration of another beautiful neighborhood. It's simple, really, but I'd like to get that state of mind back, it's all I could do to enjoy running for the sake of running. How does moving move you?
