The past few weeks I have had a ton going on. Jewelry making, street fair planning, new logo design project (still in progress will update on that soon), keeping the shop up to date, trying to blog more, attempting to tame the yard of our new house, endless new house projects, planning our 5 year anniversary trip, going on said trip, trying to jog more regularly with the hub., and a few other mentally taxing and time demanding personal projects, not to mention my full-time day job. In other words – too much.
My solution? Add something else to the list. Yeah, really.
Yoga. I have missed it. I used to practice semi regularly and it always gave me that rejuvenating moment of being 100% in the moment, in my body, with a quiet mind. It is really fantastic and with all of these to do lists running around in my head and on every surface around me all of the time, I have been craving a calm moment just for me. (Also wanting to get back on track of taking better care of my self physically. Two birds. But then that is going against what I am going for here… forget I said that at all.)
So two weeks ago I bought a groupon I couldn’t pass up. Now I have two months of yoga ahead of me.
As of tonight I am only 3 classes in, my arms feel like jello, my hips feel weirdly loose when I walk, it hurts to climb stairs and I am so happy to be finding my breath again.
Another thing I have missed that has returned with these classes is my yoga playlist.
Song of the day: This Year’s Love – David Grey
Pause. Breathe deep. Be happy where you are in the moment you are in.
…then go back to making lists.
