Yesterday morning, I woke up both sore and anxious.Â
Iâ€™ve been pushing myself really hard working out and at work, and it caught up with me a bit. My everything was sore, and my mind was in overdrive. I NEEDED yoga, so I tried one of our DailyBurn YogaÂ videos – Yin Yoga.
When I got to work, I mentioned to my coworker Alex that Iâ€™d done yoga and how much I missed it. How Iâ€™d done so much yoga at this time last year, and though I was unhappy, I was at peace as much as I could be.Â
Now, Iâ€™m really happy but busier than ever. I remember talking to a friend at the marathon expo in November, and we both vowed that we would slow down in 2014.
I have not slowed down, not even a little bit. Life is never going to slow down, so I need to make sure to slow down myself sometimes. To take time to be mindful of this awesome life I get to live and the wonderful people in my life. Of this amazing city I live in.Â
Iâ€™m not going to say Iâ€™m committing to some yoga challenge or even doing yoga X times more per week or month, but Iâ€™m going to try to bring more yoga and meditation back into my life. JenÂ and I are going to a Kundalini yoga workshop tomorrow night with Gabby Bernstein, which should be very interesting, at the least.Â
This morning, my trainer canceled on me because sheâ€™s sick, and I was about to just get ready early and go to work, but Iâ€™m glad I took a few minutes to sit down and write, for myself here. Iâ€™m still going to go into work early now, but itâ€™s nice knowing I took a little time for myself.Â
How do you take care of yourself when you need to slow down a bit?Â
