WHAT YOGA HAS DONE FOR ME!

What does it mean to be ZEN? According to the Urban Dictionary one way to think of zen is this: a total state of focus that incorporates a total togetherness of body and mind. Zen is a way of being. It also is a state of mind. Zen involves dropping illusion and seeing things without distortion created by your own thoughts.

Do I claim to be a “YOGI”?…. No.

Do I claim to be “ZEN”?…… Hell No.

But Yoga has done so many great things for me physically and spiritually. I am a person that is on 100 all the time. I am a person that when I have nothing to do I am probably going crazy. Yoga has been amazing for me!

What has Yoga done for me? 

1. I found my inner “ZEN”. Yoga has helped me realize that I can actually be still and at peace in my life. The time I have felt most relaxed was sitting on my mat and thinking I can physically take on anything that will be thrown my way.

2. Bye Bye Anxiety! I have dealt with anxiety my entire life. Yoga has helped me with my breathing and knowing I can go to a place where everything will be fine.

3. Flexibility. The last time I was flexible was when I was a cheerleader in high school. Who knew I could go back to doing the splits, I mean HELLO!

If you have not done yoga you may want to look into it. Search your local gyms, yoga studios are typically more expensive than gyms but those are always an option! 

TOP 5 GIFTS FOR A YOGI

top-5gifts-for-a-yogiYoga can be foreign to some people! I mean the first time I tried Yoga (because a friend made me) I was so confused and didn’t feel relaxed at all. Actually I was sweating a lot and it wasn’t because I was doing Hot Yoga.

If you know some that is a true “Yogi” these gifts are probably up their alley!

 

01. Everyone loves to look cute going to the gym and these cute Women’s Yoga Tank Tops are adorable!

02. Who doesn’t love a cute bag to carry all of your yoga stuff in? This bag fits perfectly for everything from your Yoga Mat to your Yoga blocks.

03. After Yoga, you must clean your mat from all the sweat! This all natural mat cleaner is the solution to all that nastiness that gets on the mat. It has a great minty smell which is a plus!!

04. For those of you that think yoga is just stretching with a mat you are WRONG. Yoga is about meditating through stretching and sometimes those stretches you use Yoga wedges and straps. Take it from someone that does yoga now. You can never have too many wedges!!

05. Maybe this person is not a Yogi yet but has expressed interest in Yoga. The perfect gift would be a few sessions at a local yoga studio and an entire Yoga for beginners kit! You can thank me later!

Yoga has really changed my life with my anxiety and stress. You can thank me later for all of these great gift ideas!

-Happy Holidays

 

Fit Mom Mother’s Day Gift Guide

l

If your like me well then you probably have no idea what to get your own mother or your husband has no clue on what to get you! Mother’s Day can get tricky but like most holidays I typically over think everything! Before I made this lifestyle change my husband always would get my favorite or at the time my favorite food! Chocolate covered strawberries was part of the norm for every holiday or birthday so this is also very shocking to him. Instead of going out to eat or getting my favorite dessert he now has to find something that is in my lifestyle change! I have am a big fan of looking cute while working out! I love cute tanks to work out in and I always say you don’t have to look rough to work out! After all I am a girlie girl that lifts weights and works out so why not look cute while sweating. My favorite workout item is my FIT BIT! I love how it syncs with my phone and how me and my friends can challenge each other on how may steps a day we are taking!m

Here are some great Mother’s Day Picks!
