Fight Back with Active Reading, Meditation and More

MS got you down? Temperatures rising to 100's. Energy low. Work load increasing and a break for Self is essential!
After waking and scanning my body for MS activity, I decided to do a movement meditation. Which really just entails lying still, quieting the mind, and visualizing trotting horses around a big field. It's the rhythm that helps me. Quieting the mind and posting to horses that exists only in my mind. It settles the mind and body so I do it.
Then time for some FreeFlow yoga. Just light stretching today. A little stiff. Some music to help me slide into a good mood.
Today I'm also hitting some active reading material. Fly fishing, cooking, art and nature. Life doesn't get much better than this.
A good imagination is crucial for surviving with MS. Flexibility. Knowing that being alive is what it's all about. Doing what you want. Living your life despite hold ups.
And now that I've had my mellow MS morning, I'm ready to take on the world! Well, maybe not the world, but at least the tasks at hand: some coding, some cooking, and most importantly, prepping for my nephews who will be here by end of day. Ages 4 & 7. Fun times!
