Being tired is definitely not sexy. It’s not even a good look.
It’s the pits waking up in the morning, feeling fatigued, and then fretting that this is the best you’re going to feel all day.
That was me at 6 am. Even viewing the dawn’s pink cotton candy clouds couldn’t help. Even sighting a roo bounding over Farmer Scott’s property couldn’t lighten me up.
Then I remembered my Fatigue Fighting Sequence and off I trundled to the Yoga Shed to avail myself of it.
In case of Emergency Exhaustion, follow this prescription:
Supta Baddha Konasana, nice propped up with bolster and blanket, 5 min.
Paschimottanasana, head resting on bolster or chair, 2 min.
Janu Sirsasana, head resting as above, 2 min. each side
Bharadavajasana, 1 min. each side
Adho Mukha Svanasana, head supported on blanket or bolster, 2 min.
Uttanasana, head resting on chair, 2 min.
Sirsasana, 3 to 5 min.
Viparita Dandasana, supported on chair, head on bolster, feet to wall, 1 to 3 min.
Sarvangasana, supported on chair, shoulders on bolster, 5 min.
Halasana, legs on bolster, on chair, 5 min.
Setu Bandha Sarvangasana, supported on bolsters, 5 min.
Viparita Karani Cycle (legs straight up, legs in splits, baddha konasana, cross-leg), bolster and blanket at wall, 3 min. each var.
There you go! Did it work for me? You betcha. I even followed the sequence with 6 hours of gardening; then I was tired again 😉
