I thought about how I used to feel a few months ago – For months I felt like my chest was caving in and my stomach was always bloated by stress and anxiety. My shoulders hunched up to my ears. I felt trapped. I’m so glad I quit my old job.
Before when I used to wake up, for the first few minutes I am peaceful then when I become fully awake my mind starts going – thinking and fretting. But I feel much more tranquil these days my mind doesn’t go into that racing state.
My skin has also improved lately – I’ve always suffered from severe acne. And when I meditate and do yoga my skin completely clears up. I think there is no specific scientific research done – but i’m living proof, it works!
I have been on so much medication the past 5 years for my skin and now i’m not on any and my skin has never been better. Having bad skin SUCKS especially when your a teenager. The best way to naturally balance those hormones is through yoga.
I feel more sociable. When I was living in Scotland sometimes I felt I was becoming anti social and I kept trying to snap out of it by joining groups and going out socialising more. I used to really have to make an effort to talk to people. I used to feel drained after it. But here I feel conversation flows freely because i’m with like minded people. I don’t even have to try – I actually find it hard to shut up.
