Happy mid-Thursday 🙂
Today has been a little stressful. Okay, today has been a lot stressful. I’m trying to remember to breathe and take things one at a time. Its funny how so often we forget to breathe in and out? I went to a 9am yoga flow class, which helped a lot. It’s not the most intense class there is and its only an hour, but just getting grounded on the mat really, really helped. Plus, my hips and hamstrings are like tight rubber bands right about now. Ouch.
I made a quick and tasty whole wheat tuna pasta salad for lunch:
I wish I could give y’all the recipe but I’m including this in my next Health.com post (read my latest post here!
) so you will have the chance to see/make this in two weeks. Sorry!
I also had a juicy grapefruit:
And I’m about to head over to the bike shop in town to put some air in my tires then go out for a long ride, another activity that really helps me calm down and get centered.
Hope your day is going well. Here’s a question for everyone: what is your primary way to de-stress? I admit I’m HORRIBLE at it. My stress resides in my shoulders and often leads to migraines. Yoga has helped by leaps and bounds but there’s still that old ball of steel in my tummy when things don’t go my way. I’d have to say though my primary ways to de-stress include yoga, drinking tea, cooking by myself and running. There’s something mellowing about chopping onions in a quiet house or stirring a pot of risotto that is so calming. What about you?
