I’ve found lately that my days are much better when my mornings go well. For the past two days, I’ve gotten up early to do yoga. I know, I’m really on a roll. I’m not gonna lie, I’ve never been a very good yogi. I get distracted easily. My mind wanders. I get bored. As it turns out, these are the very reasons to do yoga, not reasons to avoid it as I have in the past. Then at the end of last year, I found Yoga with Adriene. I love her approach – the practice is about “finding what feels good” and “shining light in the dark places.” It doesn’t sound as cheesy in the middle of downward dog, I promise. Thanks to Adriene, I’m more motivated to get on the mat and more focused during my practice. Heck, I’d never even thought about yoga as my practice before.

If you’re looking for a place to start, check out her 20 minute vinyasa flow or the 10 minute morning sequence, because therapy (and yoga) doesn't have to take an hour. Let me know what you think.
