It’s almost time for bed, but being in a reflective mood I thought I would share my thoughts on the day. I have been very productive: taking care of errands, raking the grass then finally going to Restore & Renew yoga. I always find it revitalizing to end the day with some yoga because it allows you to release all the tension from the day, both physically & mentally, and it prepares your for a good night sleep. I was also in need of some good stretching because my muscles were so tight from all the yard work. Once class began I could feel my tense muscles slowly releasing and bringing me back to focusing on my body and what it needs at that moment. Sometimes we forget to listen to what our bodies need and get stuck on autopilot, always on the go. We need to take the time to slow down and acknowledge what our bodies are telling us so we don’t end up overwhelmed by everyday stresses.
