Intuitive Saturday

After 9 hrs of glorious sleep. I woke on Friday refreshed but also lazy. I decided that I’ll take the day off and just whatever sounds good at the moment.
I meditated for 20 min, did 40 min gentle yoga, and didn’t feel like running. So I didn’t. Instead I jumped to the cold water pool and swim. It was quite an experience. As I laid out in my plan, being cold is good shock to the body for anti-ageing purpose. What I didn’t expect is the mental effect. I probably swim for 20 min without long stops. I didn’t feel cold but very awake and energised. When I checked the clock, only 20 min passed but it felt a lot longer, just like when you wake up from a sweet dream. I definitely should do this more often.
After the cold, I took a hot bath, even napped for few minutes. Then I called my mom. I haven’t called her for a while as she was traveling for two weeks in China. We talked about 45 min and it was nice to catch up.
Then I went to Costco because when veggie stock is low i the house, I get anxious. So I stocked up, saw some beautiful celery to make juices.IMG 0781
I made a celery, cucumber, lemon and ginger juice. Very strong but it did good to my stressed GI.

Then I finished writing my journal for the day before and wrote down a passage about control and love that I really like from Untamed. Girls were doing distance learning, and Lizzy was very busy with her class. I don’t know why she needed tooth brush and helmet for her class though

Made an easy lunch for the family, mayonnaise free egg salad that they all loved! instead of mayonnaise that husband forgot to buy, I made it with whipped tahini. Yum.

after lunch, I read, then took a nap (it seems that I really needed some sleep). Also did some crating while Sofia had her spanish class. After her class, she really wanted to go out for a walk but she still had to do mandarin homework. She spent two hours doing it. She finished late and I felt bad for her. Mandarin is so hard, I felt sympathised. So even though it was late, we still went for a walk. She was quiet for the first half but by the second half, she was ok.

As parent, I feel bad seeing my kid suffer but I also know this is part of the learning process. Being challenged, getting frustrated is needed to get out of the comfort zone.

I enjoyed the 100% intuitive day… no plans but to pause each moment what I want to do at that moment. Need to practice this more often.
