Recently I’ve realized I needed more relaxation in my life… 🙂 Well, I’ve known this for quite a while but finally started to make stress reduction a bigger priority in my life. I’ve discovered that I really like yoga and have taken a few classes at the gym in my office building. The teacher is amazing and I always come away feeling refreshed and less tense. I’ve noticed that the stretching helps with post-running soreness and I feel more in tune with my body when I finish. It’s amazing how much kinder I want to be to my self after finishing a yoga session – I’m more aware of the food I put in my body, how much food I eat, the thoughts I think about my body and the pace at which I rush to accomplish my tasks for the day.
