I’ve talked about yoga a while ago, and it is something that I haven’t done in a while.
Recently, though, I’ve been doing yoga instead of those very light workouts, and it has really helped me. I just finished a yoga workout and I had to share my experience.
It may have a temporary effect, but it’s totally worth it. I feel like when I’m doing yoga, I get this momentary peace where I can feel my muscles relax (something my muscles rarely do).
Motherhood has turned me into a very neurotic person, but when I’m doing yoga (like really doing yoga not attempting to do yoga while I yell at my 5 year old to leave me alone) I feel so peaceful.
For 7 minutes, I’m not thinking about my to do list, or my problems, or worries. I’m just stretching my muscles.
I don’t do those crazy yoga poses either. I have bad knees and a bad left foot, so my movements are limited. These are totally doable moves and they are so relaxing. It’s basically stretching.
I use the application I mentioned in my previous yoga blog. Click here to read it.
I even downloaded another yoga app for my 5 year old so he doesn’t feel left out.
So yeah, do yoga.
Start feeling zen, even if it’s just for 7 minutes a day. You deserve a break from social media and the craziness in the world.
