Do you feel alone?
I know for me, I’ve had dark times when family and friends are close but seem far away. I have no interest in engaging with others. I sleep more, I crave darkness, I don’t want anyone to talk to me. During those times, I find myself scrolling, scrolling, scrolling or watching Netflix, Hulu, Bravo, all the things.
Loneliness is a health risk. It’s as deadly as smoking 15 cigarettes a day, according to the Surgeon General, Dr. Vivek Murthy. https://apnews.com/article/surgeon-general-loneliness-334450f7bb5a77e88d8085b178340e19
Why am I telling you this? For me, getting outside of my comfort zone when I want to be alone, putting myself out there, smiling when someone introduces themselves to me, breaks my cycle of scrolling and watching television.
If you understand where I’m coming from I want to challenge you, yes YOU. Book a yoga class. The best part of Titanium Yoga is our community. Walk in the front door, check in with the teacher, grab your mat and towel, put your personal items in the cubby, walk into the room dim room and be alone with a group of people. No one is judging you, that’s why the lights are dim. Just breathe for 60 minutes. After, walk into the lobby and tell the teacher what you thought of class. I promise you, that cycle of loneliness will be over.
Remember, YOU ARE UNBREAKABLE!
