Yoga Lessons

Some things that went through my mind during yoga class today:

1. I may be the youngest person there, but I'm not the most flexible. I don't twist well! I'd say excessive computer use is aging me, but I've never been particularly flexible.

2. The neck stretches feel really, really good. I should do these every day.

3. I need to send out the agenda for tomorrow's meeting.

4. Wow, my core muscles are weak.

What was supposed to be going through my mind during yoga class:

Nothing. I was supposed to be centered and living in the moment.

I'm not very good at that, but I do keep trying, because I really do think it is the secret to lower stress living.

So this afternoon, when we got home from work/day care, Pumpkin and I snuggled up on the sofa and watched a Signing Time DVD. She likes to me to watch the show with her, but I'm usually busy trying to get things done. Today, I didn't try to unload the dishwasher, or clean the table, or anything else. I just held my sweet little toddler and practiced the signs for colors and fruits. It was nice.

But now? I'm watching a Daily Show while typing a blog entry. I guess I have a way to go on that living in the moment thing.

  1. At least you are doing the yoga. Even if it doesn't make it to the zen meditation stage, at least your body is getting into it.

    How nice to snuggle with Pumpkin and just watch a Signing Time!
