The art of waking up

You know, lately I’ve found myself in a slump. It’s like a half awake slump. A wow-I’m kind of awake and going through life but kind of not. It’s a constant struggle to “stay “awake” and really experience life.  It can feel this way for days or even weeks.


It may take weeks for me to have an event that really wakes me up and to experience life. Like maybe a holiday occurs or a really scary event happens that wakes me up and makes my eyes wide, my sense of smell heighten, and makes everything tingle and I can actually feel the blood in my body rush and remind me of my humanity.


I’m going to start doing things that help me feel awake. Yoga, running, writing, talking with loved ones, learning, reading.


What makes you feel awake?
