So yesterday was a combination of a drug-induced blur with a flurry of activity. I slept probably 6 or 8 hours in small increments during the day; but also did my taxes, laundry, cooking, a thousand of headstands and took my son to the airport. His spring break is over, and I am going to miss my baby!
I discovered for the first time in my life that the inversions help with the stuffed nose. Especially a headstand. I think I vastly improved it for my practice because I had to do it every hour or so. After the headstand I could blow my nose, use a neti pot and then nasya oil. Then breathing bliss for 40 or so minutes and the whole thing had to be repeated again. I am not sure how the headstand affected the rest of my body, but I felt like shit. Feverish, achy all over, and low on energy. No appetite either.
This morning I did an abbreviated practice at home, which left me panting. Have to go to work, unfortunately. Need to pick up my poster and print out everything for the trip, teach my class, have pictures taken for the work permit, pick up my husband for the airport, talk to a friend about taking care of our cats while we are away, and pack our bags. The flight to San Francisco is tomorrow at 6 am. Thank God I am no stranger to waking up early!
Now, I remember the times when being sick meant staying leisurely in bed, being treated with tea and chicken soup and lots of loving care. What happened to those old good times? Why am I in a headstand again?!
