Commit-to-Sit Challenge Set Aside
As I approach my third anniversary, I am finally learning the rhythms of the vertigo. Autumn is a time of regression where I begin losing my balance more often, struggle with my morning yoga practice, etc. Last week I began feeling nauseous and was unable to do the evening meditation that is part of the Commit-to-Sit challenge. By the end of the week, I was unable to tolerate the afternoon meditative walk (or tai chi, which I also tried to do on alternating days). I am going to put the challenge aside for now. I will continue doing the morning yoga and meditation but, for now, trying to do more meditating in the evening is too challenging for me and I need to honor my body, listen to its needs, and not constantly push myself.
