Day 1- Start with a sativa and some Ganja Yoga
My #selfcareshare challenge was achieved in the afternoon today after setting the kids up with snacks and the new Star Wars movie. I left Megan (our 18-year-old) in charge and went upstairs.
I medicated with a Blue Dream pre-roll from North County Direct. No, they are NOT spliffs, 100% cannabis. It looks just like a cigarette but isn’t, I spoke to the person behind the concept; As a smoker, he decided instead of making cigarettes he would switch out the tobacco for cannabis. (They are gaining in popularity locally here in San Diego.) This was an easy and convenient method being time was of the essence today. I loaded up my “Simply Yoga” DVD, (I dig accents) and away I went!
A lot of folks can practice yoga on their own and I commend them for that. Personally, I find when self-led I rush through, forget, lose focus and don’t get the same overall relaxation I do from being lead. I enjoy this DVD because it covers all the basics and leaves me feeling more centered, relaxed yet energized. What I like most are the woman’s voice and instruction, I can close my eyes and follow along if I wanted. (I don’t recommend it, easy to fall over)
As I moved through the poses I could feel my stretches and pay attention to my breathing and my body, the blue dream strain helps me to slow down and pay attention to details. I was really noticing a therapeutic feel during savasana at the end of my practice. I had not only identified my back issue but felt amazingly relaxed compared to before I came upstairs.
I am really glad I took this 30 minutes for myself today and appreciate that cannabis only improved my experience. I am off to make peanut butter sandwiches and answer emails,
