Self Care Fridays: Set Goals and Crush ‘Em!


Peace Soulstars,

One of my favorite forms of meditation involves movement.  Anything dance, barre (pure barre to be exact), yoga which involves moving the body resonates with my spirit.  Sitting still is cool but I much more prefer to move.  It’s just as effective but adds variety to my meditation practice and variety is a must for me because I bore easily.  Insert amazing yogi Adriene from “yoga with Adriene” whose yoga videos I’ve been using for my home yoga practice for years now.  I’ve just finished day 2 of the “31 days of yoga” series with Adriene of “Yoga with Adriene” on youtube. I started the 2016 yoga series but fell off.  Well, this year I plan to keep it up throughout the 31 day stint.  I’m all about goal setting because it’s motivating to have done 2 days back to back.  It actually goes by fast because I enjoy it so much.  I make sure I do yoga first thing in the am or after a light breakfast.  So, I’ve made it a part of my morning routine which helps tremendously.

I’ve been off and on with my home yoga practice due to a two year stint with pure barre which took over for a while starting in 2014.  Back to my yoga now and I am truly loving this series.  Adriene takes it easy, doesn’t rush you, and encourages you to go at your own pace.  I love her clarity in describing each transition from pose to pose and her overall vibe.  Her style resonates with me so much that I’m thinking of doing yoga morning and night (right before bed) just because.  The list of health benefits of doing so is endless.  Check out yogarevolution with Adriene here.  I’ll check in from time to time throughout the month to follow up.  Nama-Slay!

Love and Light,
