om monday: find your yoga

the other day, when i was talking with my mom, i told her that i think she needs to take the time to "find her yoga".  by that, i meant finding the thing that is (mildly) self-indulgent, grounds you, centers you and leaves you feeling healthier, stronger and overall better.  for me, it's yoga.  for others it's walking, meditating or taking a spin class.  but whatever it is, the most essential element is finding it and allowing yourself the time to enjoy it.

when we take time for ourselves, we replenish our enthusiasm and energy for life.  and we ultimately become better friends, wives, sisters, daughters and mothers.  when we take care of ourselves, we are better able to take care of others and tackle all that life throws our way.

so, i encourage all of you to "find your yoga".  and if you've already found it, gift yourself the time to enjoy it as often as possible.  it's not's essential.

what's your "yoga"?


  1. my yoga is definitely running and cooking - both keep me centered and grounded! I agree - everyone needs to find "their yoga"! Great post! xoxo from Trinidad

  2. My yoga is certainly not yoga! I love crossfit and despite the 5am wake up call I feel soo much better for going. Love you babe.

  3. sometimes it's yoga, sometimes it's running. love the encouraging post!

  4. I wish I knew what my "yoga" was! Still trying to find it...

  5. yoga in itself is my yoga along with running, baking and my husband and i playing with our two dogs. those things are always great reminders to slow down and enjoy life

  6. This is a great post- I love your definition of finding your yoga- mine is definitely running. I have a love/hate relationship with it, but it really makes me happy! I'm going to run my first half marathon this fall! :)


hello there. thank you for your comments - i love reading them.
