Worcester friends – what are your memories of Institute Park? Bob See and I went there today for a delightful walk! We saw red-winged blackbirds, Canada geese, mallards, but no wood ducks … here’s our video!
Exercise Day #3!! It was WAY too cold to go out, but I wanted something aerobic. I said to myself, what would my mom enjoy?
Bob and I spent a solid hour clearing out my corner of the basement which has my TV, PS2, and floor dance pad. I can once again Dance Dance Revolution!!
I then spent a non-stop hour with my favorite songs, Long Train Running, In The Navy, and The Reflex in honor of Jeanne!! So happy!
I have four different DDR game discs and I cycle through each in turn, because there are certain songs I like on each one. 9 on the first, 3 on the second (x2), 3 on the third (x2), and 3 on the fourth (x2). They ramp up in difficulty as they go.
The kittens are quite helpful in demonstrating how easy a spinal twist pose is. Simply point the arms in one direction and the legs in another. They also like to challenge me by randomly removing various parts of the yoga mat from play. Especially when I’m up in a pose and trying to transition to another one. Have you done your yoga today? If not, roll your shoulders! Every bit helps!
Do Yoga Every Day – You don’t have to do a long two-hour yoga practice every day to get benefits. If your schedule is busy, just make time for ten minutes. Fifteen minutes. Even a few minutes of gentle yoga reaps wonderful benefits for your health. It impacts your immune system, your spine health, your levels of stress hormones in your system, and so much more.
My yoga practice today was fairly brief, as I have some pressing tasks to get done before end-of-day. Even that short time invested repays in dividends as everything else I do hums along at a solid clip.
Did you do any yoga today? Even a brief head roll? Make the time to invest in yourself!
My kittens Zuzu and Felix helped with my daily yoga session today. They especially like walking beneath me when I’m doing plank pose and sticking their tail all over my face. This helps me practice my focus and breathing. Have you done any yoga yet today? Take five minutes to stretch! #namaste
