How to Slow Down to the Speed of Life

As I sit here writing to you, I am resting my healing foot on a hot water bottle and I am sipping on my Chinese herbs that are helping my bones and ligaments heal.   I feel blessed to have a healthy body and a loving community that has allowed me to take it easy over the past couple weeks.  But I'm only just beginning to accept the yoga lesson this injury has brought me:  

Please slow down &
listen to your body!


As we age, it is even more important that we tune into what the physical body needs day to day.  Yoga helps us build a fluid, mindfulness connection to the ever-changing needs of the body.  And when we experience an injury or a sudden change in our physical abilities, those basic building blocks of our practice can be hard to access at first.  I know because my left foot has been reminding me of how crucial my yoga practice is in my healing journey.   Here are a few resources that I have discovered that are helping me as I limp along the way.  
My hope is they might help you as well.

 As I often quote Mae West saying "I didn't say it would be easy, I just said it will be worth it!", I vow to slow down, let my body heal and meditate on to taking even better care of my aging body .  I wish to continue to be of service for a long time to come.     


Here's to age-appropriate healing and overall well-being!  

Love and peace,
Ken
