Caregiver’s Meditations : Early Mornings
A morning ritual and disciplined practice~ waking up in the wee hours when there is nothing but stillness and the sounds of sleepy, heavy breathing and a few birds calling for the morning sun. I tiptoe to my office where my yoga mat awaits along with a candle, grapefruit essential oil in the burner, a yoga blanket and an online yoga class followed by a guided meditation.
I have been using the following to guide and inspire me each morning:
- Jon Kabbat’s Guided Meditations in 10, 20 and 30-minute intervals
- A subscription to Stay-At-Home Yoga
- A variety of albums and songs by Jai Uttal
- Sarah Powers Yin Yoga
This has only been made possible with very early bedtimes and thanks to my husband who takes any and all nighttime shifts so that I am able to have a full night’s sleep. Love and gratitude to you Brad. x
That’s beautiful Meagan that Brad is so helping for you!
I’ll be looking up those links right now!
I was suppose to go to Yoga tonight at a new studio and I didn’t make it because of the children. I think online yoga and meditation is a wonderful way to look after mamas that simply can’t get out and can use windows of opportunities. Thank you for the links. What a considerate hubby.
