When Things Change…

Welp, here I am!  It has been 210 days since my last post.  But here I am! And yes things have changed quite a bit in my world.

Since March, I have planned a wedding, left my full-time secure job, got married, traveled to Greece, took a stab at teaching yoga full time, got a new last name (!), and have a lot more time on my hands.

Things change.  Our circumstances change.  Our jobs change. Schedules change.  People in our lives change.  And we change.  If we allow it.   Continue reading

When Things Change

Happy Monday Bloggies!  I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend.  I really have been slacking on the blog front lately and I’m trying to figure out why.  Maybe other bloggers can relate and share their advice?

For some reason I’ve been lacking inspiration lately when it comes to writing and really it should be the opposite.  I have a TON of new things going on, I would think the ideas would be pouring out of my brain…but they’re not!

The more and more I’ve thought about this the more clear the reason has become.  A LOT has changed since I started The Primal Yogi in August, 2013.

I moved to a new town.

I moved in with my boyfriend.

I made the decision to sign up for and then completed my first 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training. Continue reading

How to Have a Good Monday

I got through Monday! AND it was a good Monday! Am I finally figuring out how to start off my week on an awesome note?

Maybe I’m on to something here…so let me share.

Give Yourself Time – Don’t Rush

I woke up before 6AM to drive from Andy’s to my apartment. There is always traffic, so I make sure to give myself some extra time. When I got home I had time to shower, get ready, and get my lunch together… and had plenty of time to do it! Not having to rush can alleviate so much stress. I got into work a half hour early, ready to take on the day.

Eat Well – Prep Your Meals

For lunch I came back home (I’m lucky enough to live close), made myself lunch, and meal prepped for the rest of the week. I made Simple Chorizo and Butternut Squash Hash from Juli at PaleOMG. It was nice to try something new and it was delicious!

Focus on One Thing at a Time

During the second half of my day at work I tried to stay focused and didn’t let the infinite amounts of information on the Internet/Social media distract me.

End Your Day with Yoga

After work I went to a brand new yoga studio that I’m scoping out.  It’s definitely different from any “city” studio that I’ve been to but I loved it.  It’s in a beautiful space and it was really nice to end my day with some backbending and savasana.  (The picture was from Sunday night when I was practicing my hand stands.)

Make Small Changes to Your Routine – Keep Things Fresh

I think the key to my great Monday today was having enough time and keeping things new, fresh, and exciting.  Changing your routine, eating a different go-to snack, drinking your coffee black, or going on a different running route are just a few examples of ways to switch it up.  Sometimes the smallest changes can be really refreshing.

How do you get through your Monday?
