This morning I woke up with a headache.
My first instinct was to curl right back under my blanket and hope that it would go away. But with all the reading I’ve been doing recently about energy flow (bear with me) and how our bodies give us pain when we’re holding on to certain emotions I decided to take some action and figure out if there’s any truth to it.
I’m pretty sure my headache was a result of a dream I had. There is someone that I miss terribly from my life and dreaming about that person has somehow brought tension into my body, specifically my brain.
I was debating the best ways to remove this little ‘emotional clot’ as I think of it. The gym seemed too hardcore for my fragile little head this morning so I opted for a yoga video on youtube with an emphasis on ‘energy flow’.
And do you know what? It bloody well worked.
I’ve managed to get oxygen to every corner of my body resulting in my energy flowing again rather than stagnating, and my headache has gone. I also feel like I was holding on to tension in other areas of my body and I now feel lighter in body and mind.
I’m not saying yoga is the only remedy, but I think moving in a controlled way and focusing on breathing in that magical oxygen stuff can really make a difference.
Today I am grateful that I can take my health into my own hands.
Are you sceptical or in agreement?
