I’m sure by now you’ve seen my Yoga video, right? I’ve come to realize in recent months that my level of productivity had decreased. I simply no longer had the energy to keep up with all I had to do. I know my stress levels were through the roof. What I didn’t realize is that having a healthy mind is also tied to having a healthy body… and vice versa. By getting out and participating in more physical activities, I’m also learning to relax my mind, and de-stress myself. It’s working, too… I have renewed energy and enthusiasm!
How do you relax? What’s your little secrets and tricks that you use in order to try to keep some semblance of order and peace in your mind? One thing I have always done, as you know, is to read up on what is going on in our community. I learn things, I laugh at things, and I even at times empathize with things.
- Is Congress starting to get their act together?
- If you work from your home, make sure you know how to protect yourself.
- Will your next flight be in the “economy coach” section?
One of the cool things my friend Imei does is to teach Yoga. She often works with people in corporate environments, to help them learn how to be more productive due to learning how to relax. Isn’t that an interesting concept for a Geek? That whole relaxing thing kind of worried me a bit at first. I have to admit, I feel more comfortable in my own body now. I feel as though I’m getting more oxygen… and that little spot between my shoulder blades no longer hurts due to having bad posture.
By simply learning to breathe better, and relax each muscle of my body, I now truly feel like a million bucks. I know I slouch in my office chair. Don’t lie – I know you do, too! Most of us have bad posture. Since we spend so many hours a day hunched over our computers, it’s no wonder that we’re always in pain, and rubbing kinks out of our necks!
If I were you, I’d take a yoga class or two. It will only help you, and no… it does not make you look unmanly! I feel better. I’m breathing better. I AM better.
