The view from my yoga mat
I used to be an avid yoga enthusiast. I even did prenatal yoga quite regularly when I was expecting. And then I had a baby. Who didn’t sleep for the first 10 months.
Now that Little One’s just over a year old and sleeping well, I’m slowly getting back into my yoga routine. One of the things I missed was how great yoga made me feel—especially during busy weeks when I logged a lot of computer time. A regular yoga/stretching routine even helped me bounce back from a case of wrist tendinitis, so I can’t sing its praises enough.
The benefits of yoga for a busy biz mama
- It melts away the day’s stress—and pulls back my (computer-induced) hunched over shoulders
- It allows me one glorious hour to myself, where I don’t have to worry about anyone being fed, changed or walked
- It clears my mind of any work tasks and prepares me for the weekend with my family
I’ve been taking outdoor yoga classes in a park near my office, so it has the added benefit of spending an hour in fresh air and sunshine. Friday can’t come soon enough!
