Back at home we quickly took down, cleaned up and purged our Christmas decor.....then tried cleaning just a little deeper than usual. I'm not sure what it is but something about cleaning up after the holidays spurs me to want to deep clean and organize just a bit more. It happens most every year but don't worry I never take it too far. ;)
Recommitting just a bit to be more scheduled and spend spend more one on one time with my children has taken up the majority of my "New Years Resolution" thoughts. Along with one word... TODAY. I tend to be one who can at times find it hard to just be totally present.
So I have been learning and feel the need to focus on just each day at hand and learn to tackle TODAY well and let go of things that cause me to feel crushed.
Of course I always have a few health goals in mind and my very favorite one involves more movement and flexibility both in body and mind.
I have been meaning to tell you for a while now about how much I have been loving my membership to Stay at Home Yoga. I have mentioned it lots to my real life friends but somehow it has slipped my mind to share it here.
But now is the perfect time because Jen over at Stay at Home Yoga is getting ready to start up another one of her 6 week Mastermind and Body Programs starting on January 18th. I participated in her last one in the Fall and learned so much. I love her simple and peaceful way.
My membership not only gives me access to all the Mastermind and Body Programs she offers but all the classes, podcasts, live classes, videos, etc. and she has up on her site and ones she will post in the future. I have been taking her advise to move more in general and also taking the time to do a full yoga class 2-3 times per week.
I cannot tell you the difference this has made for me not only physically but since relaxation is an important part of yoga it seems to be doing wonders for my racing mind to practice the art of learning to quiet it and take a little time to deeply relax and rejuvenate in that way. Such a simple thing but I think many of us don't realize how very burnt out we are until we spend a little time to actually renew and feel the difference.
I am very much looking forward to learning more in this next Mastermind and Body Program and highly recommend that if any of you are feeling frazzled and a bit burnt out that this is a perfect non-overwhelming simple way to start to turn that around. I just can't recommend it enough and feel that it has been Heaven sent.
