Several months ago I rediscovered yoga. Although I am not flexible at all, despite my small frame, and it’s challenging to do the poses, yoga makes me feel invincible. In fact, I feel 10 times taller when I am done with a session. I usually do 20 to 30 minutes at a time and I choose the de-stress variety. I’ve found that if I stick with it two to three times a week, I truly feel a difference in my stress level. Unfortunately due to tons of craziness during the summer, I’ve moved away from yoga. Fortunately I now have a chance to move back.
Back to school, to me, is a time to start anew, much like the new year. It’s a chance to start a new schedule, recommit to an old activity and just recharge. To that end, I will recommit to my yoga practice. To supplement that, I plan to eat smaller meals throughout the day to keep my energy high for the busy days ahead.
I feel energized just thinking about it!
