Super busy few weeks…

Unexpectedly some things came up that made me super busy for the last 3 weeks.  Cooking was something I really struggled to have any time for and I was too exhausted to come up with anything new.  So, I ate things I’ve already posted on here and really had to make sure I did the mindfulness exercises.

Here’s what I ate and hope I coped

Lunches

mackerel & quinoa salad
Crustless tofu quiches
Broccoli salad
Chicken and lettuce sandwich (new recipe)

Mackerel & Quinoa Salad

Dinners

Exercises

In the evenings to unwind and let my brain rest I took the The Relaxation Journey exercise.

The Relaxation Journey

When I was at work and needed to take a break I would do the Tai Chi Baton Breathing at my desk.  I could do it for 2-3 minutes just to let my brain chill and refocus.

Tai Chi Baton Breathing

I found attending some gentle yoga classes with an emphasis on pranayama (breathing) and meditation ensured that I took a full hour lunch break and came back with a clearer mind and better attention.
