In your wellness efforts what is a healthy habit that makes you feel most centered after doing it?
This is an easy answer for me, it is totally YOGA! I have not practiced as much as I’d like to, but I am making a point of doing yoga at least once each week. I just got back into a practice for the past two weeks and it feels SO GOOD!
I often have difficulty quieting my mind. A visit to my local yoga studio, or even a good yoga DVD really helps me focus on connecting my mind and body. Yoga helps me create an environment where I have a more “in-the-moment” thought process. I can forget about my worries or the to-do list for the day. I also like the way yoga makes me feel centered. I get a this feeling of oneness with my mind and body. Not to get all zen on you, but it’s true.
I love striking a pose where I can feel fully balanced from head to toe. Of course, there are days when I am a bit wobbly too, but even then, there is a feeling of inner strength and communication with my inner self. If you have not tried yoga, I highly recommend it, but if you are a pure beginner, take some beginner classes from someone who is really experienced. Although it may look easy with slow and steady movement, you can get injured in yoga if you don’t use proper form.
