Progress? Perhaps...

I've been doing the daily yoga, meditation and breathwork practise that I learned at the Art of Living course, for about a half hour every morning. I find it a struggle at times, since part of me doesn't want to have to do it. It makes me cranky. But the yoga is good for my flexibility, and I seem to have more energy. It's a bit too early to be proclaiming miracle cure, but it seems to be working. I still feel like I have a cold, but it's not bothering me so much and I haven't been feeling like I need the afternoon naps as often. Another friend of mine with CFS has been doing the daily practise for 105 days, encounters similar resistance, and seems to be recovering. As he said to me on Skype this morning, "It's early days yet".

By the way, I've met some pretty cool people via this blog. If you want to set up a blog to help you connect with other people while you recover, check out my Build Your Own Blog website, starting with this article on How to Build Your Own Blog using WordPress.

    Hi Graham, really love your site. Its great to be able to read about other peoples journey with fatigue foe. I also practice the meditaiton and yoga to help with the fatigue and the headspace. I find the hardest thing is staying regular really...but when I'm onto it I really feel the benefits. I've got a blog on the meditation you might like to check my blog is pretty fresh off the press (or keyboard as it may be)....

    Man its so hard to put yourself in positions of feeling lots of pain. Especially when your body shuts down so easily. I'm lucky now i can manage it. But i think one of the best things i learnt was to chase that pain in meditation.
    I've talked about pain on my site and its probably the most integral part of healing the cfs i believe. i'd like to link with you if i can work it out.
