|Baby Hannah was doing mudras😍💜|
The four-month old baby was extremely calm considering the long journey. I have never seen such a calm baby.
The mom was so loving, so dedicated: she slept a few minutes, got up, comforted the baby, sat down with baby, nursed her, held her, slept again, put baby back, etc. this continued for the duration of the long flight. Only once she did not wake up immediately when the baby cried (in the crib attached to wall between first class and coach) and there was only one time when she did not seem to stop crying.
- Did not watch movies - seems impossible in retrospect (because I usually do)
- Did not read (since I forgot my Lonely Planet guide book)
- Did a lot of simple stretches
- Did lots of Dien Cham (facial reflexology)
- Did hand reflexology
- Meditated/breath work pranayama (using my beads)..
- Napped on and off
- What else could I possibly have done? Oh I noticed that the younger woman and older man on the other side of the aisle were also busy moving their feet, massaging (reflexing?) their hands... fellow passengers were going for walks.
- my ankles started getting puffy at one point but some movement/stretching/reflexology remedied that immediately (wow!!!)
- my nose was getting clogged and Dien Cham took care of that (yes reflexology indeed works best at the onset of a challenge, but to notice the mini symptoms we need to be present and that is why we should practice yoga/meditatio/pranayama one or ideally all of them daily).
