Yesterday I did not give myself enough time to go to the gym before work, so instead of giving up on myself, I decided to do a yoga tape at home. I chose AM /PM Yoga with Rodney Yee and Patricia Walden produced by Gaiam. Not having done yoga in forever, I had forgotten how much I love it. It felt like a massage - the feeling of stiffness after waking up was gently eased out of my joints. Can't wait to do it again! Then as soon as the credits finished rolling, I had to quickly pack a lunch, take out the dogs, take a shower; life got hectic again.
At work today while I was taking care of one of my infant patients I felt stressed and rushed for time. All I had to do was remember the feeling of calm that the morning practice brought to me,take a few deep breathes, and thankfully felt my heart rate slow a little.
