This has been a great source of consternation throughout much of my life. And while I long ago gave up the notion that I'd ever be one of those people who can pop out of bed and be full of energy - I hate those people...
There are times when I really wish that I could wake up and feel like something other than shit on a biscuit.
This is particularly true when it comes to yoga. I LOVE yoga, I really do. But they all say you're supposed to get up and do it first thing in the morning. I have really, REALLY tried, but unfortunately, it just doesn't seem to work out that well for me.
It's not just that I'm tired and grumpy in the mornings, I generally wake up feeling totally famished.
And I don't know about you, but I find it REALLY hard to make myself perform ANY physical activity when I'm literally weak with hunger.
But suddenly it occurred to me that perhaps I was making this more difficult than it actually was.
Just because "they" say that you're supposed to do your yoga first thing in the morning, doesn't mean that I have to listen to "them."
And the results have been AMAZING!
Seriously, I'm sleeping much better, and I find that I really look forward to having my winding down yoga time at the end of the day... and it totally does away with the temptation for late night zoning out on the couch watching stupid television.
I've been doing it every night for a week or so now, and I sort of can't believe how easy it's been.
I guess I should know by now not to listen to "them."
Soooo... does anybody out there want to join me and Kristin for the 30 day yoga challenge? It'll be really fun, I promise!
