Self-improvement

I bought some books for the first time in a very long time last week. I’ve been buying less ‘stuff’ recently so I was very excited about this. I took them out and looked at them one-by-one and realised that not only were they all basically self-improvement books of some sort but they all contained courses of at least 8 weeks.

This is a good thing, I decided. I need some structure, some base at the moment. The sadness has been there every single morning for weeks. Still doing my pranayama, my metta meditation, my yoga, my running, my painting but there’s always room for more, right?

So the books are: Moving Toward Balance by Rodney Yee, Meditation for the Love of it by Sally Kempton, Full Catastrophe Living by Jon Kabat-Zinn and The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron. So we have yoga, meditation, mindfulness and creativity. I’ll be one hell of a person by the end of this binge!

Naturally enough I started with the Rodney Yee yoga book because I already do it everyday and it starts off fairly basic. I started that on Wednesday so I’ll post a review of that first week next Wednesday. Hopefully the other courses will follow. I’m quite excited by these new books!

In other news: I did Hanumanasana! For the very first time I was able to feel stable enough in the base to lift up my arms. No more stabilisers for me!
