I read that “if you’re over 60 and wake up with nothing hurting, you’re dead.” (unknown.)
Seems there’s some truth here.
I’ve been practicing Hatha Yoga for over 40 years, and consider myself flexible. Physically and emotionally. But, I’ve noticed getting in and out of Lyft (car sharing service) in the city, there seems to be too much noise coming from me in the way of grunts. No matter how lady like, still a grunt.
I decided while I was in Virginia to try to curb the noises. Not using a car service here, but still in and out of my sister in laws car, (and may I add, not a huge van.)…….I’m still grunting. Also in and out of chairs.
I made a conscious effort to stop. I surely don’t need the additional focus on age related sounds. That’s another post all together and may I add that “denial is a wonderful thing.” said by Kitty Carlisle many years ago, and timeless.
So far so good. I am quite disciplined and this is another way of practicing.
The new me….sans the grunts. Silence is really golden.
I would like to sincerely thank all new followers. I appreciate your support.

In getting some things together today I actually made the “noises” getting up from the floor – oh my, must be more aware!🤭
Perhaps we should sing instead🤗
I’m not making noises on a regular basis (yet), but I do make them from time to time. I think at some point in our lives we are allowed because we have earned the right, but I can also see the positive parts of consciously NOT making them. It doesn’t mean you don’t still “feel” something but it can certainly change the mind set not to “hear” them also.. 🙂 ❤
