Yoga's Not Really My Thing

Hello you beautiful CREW woman!

What’s one thing you’ve done this year, so far, that’s been a stretch for you - something outside of your comfort zone? Reply right here and share.

This past weekend I did yoga. I didn’t really want to. I was co-hosting an event - the other co-host was leading a yoga session. It was an open space, the kind that’s not conducive to lurkers.

I bit the bullet and got a mat.

It wasn’t pretty.

I rolled around on the floor. I balanced on one leg. I vinyasa’d. It wasn’t easy. None - NOT ONE - of the movements was intuitive for me. It wasn’t comfortable.

But there was a moment - at the end - when I laid flat out on my back - that felt gooooood.

Then, there was a moment the next day when I felt that twinge of muscle soreness where I knew I had done my body good.

I love that feeling

It’s one of the ways I feel most alive - and I haven’t felt that in more than a little while.

To wrap up her session, the teacher, a genuinely lovely and grounded human, led us through a gratitude exercise and gifted us journals to use going forward. I’m so glad she did because…

Journaling has been a powerful, transformative tool in my life

That’s why I created this (free) 5-Day 5-Minute Journal Challenge.

You can use the book (The 5-Minute Journal) or follow along with just a notebook on your own but I urge you to give it a whirl.

You can sign up for the 5-Minute Journal Challenge right >> HERE <<

I’ll be doing it right along with you and would love to know in a comment below: Are you going to join?  

With so much love, joy and gratitude,

P.S. When’s the last time you did yoga? Do you like it? Comment and tell me why / how you grew to love it or if it’s just intuitive for you.

P.P.S. Are you in our FB group? It’s your space, our space, to get really, really real with each other about all the things that help us be our best selves at work and in all areas of our lives - even when we’re sweaty and rolling around all uncoordinated on a yoga mat.
