Workout For A Happier You + prAna 30 Days of Yoga Challenge

Good Friday Morning!  I actually woke up early and did a 45 minute walk on the treadmill today, something I haven't done in a while.  I love the way I feel after a morning walk, it gets me moving and puts me in a good mood for the day.  I didn't get my workout in on Tuesday or Wednesday this week and I felt the difference on those days.  I am more tired and I am definitely more cranky!  My usual workout time is about an hour or so after breakfast, which works out perfectly for me.  Then post-workout I have my shake, take a shower which leaves the rest of my day for chores, errands and having play time with my little one.  It also sets the tone for my day.  I really am much happier on the days that I workout...thanks to those happy little endorphins that are released during exercise.  Since it is winter here and really hard to get outside for a long periods of time, getting a workout in is the best mood booster.  I am going to try and incorporate more yoga into my weekly workouts too.  I used to go once a week to a studio and I love how practicing makes me feel.  I have a few yoga DVD's that I love.  I am going to try and get up at least once a week and get it in first thing.  Do you love the way you feel after a good sweat session? 

On Monday prAna and Sweat Pink will kick off the 30 Days of Yoga Challenge. I am excited for this because yoga is something that I love, but don't always make the time for.  I need to get back to it so I can work on my flexibility, it will also allow me to add meditation back into my life!  I participated in the fun along then feel free to make and share yours!  Stay tuned as you will see updates all month long about the 30 Days of Yoga Challenge, I hope you will join me! 

When I think about yoga, the first thought that comes to mind is_relaxation_. Yoga challenges(verb) me and makes me feel refreshed (noun).

That’s why I am SO thrilled (adjective) to participate in prAna’s Take The Leap 30 days of Yoga Challenge with Sweat Pink. I plan to Down Dog (yoga pose) my way to a more relaxed (adjective) and flexible (adjective) 2015!

For me, the biggest challenge when it comes to yoga is making the time for it. Taking the Leap with prAna and Sweat Pink is a great way for me to face/ conquer / achieve / find time for my happy place on the mat (same challenge / or be creative!).
