How To Make The Most Out Of Your Commute

Happy Friday people! I hope everyone had a great week.

So I’d be lying if I were to say life’s been easy lately. Not to say I’m not grateful for everything in my life right now. I moved into a beautiful new house that still doesn’t seem real sometimes and I completed my yoga teacher training! With the move came a longer commute though and what seems like hardly any free time.

Between trying to find time to practice yoga, teach yoga, and keep up with blogging I knew I’d have to maximize any free time I have. That means my 40 minute train rides and hour and a half drives now have become time to get sh*t done! Continue reading

How To Clean Your Yoga Mat

Okay, let’s start this with a confession.  I don’t clean my yoga mat nearly as much as I should.  There I said it.  And I’m assuming at least 90% of yogis out there would say the same thing!  If you live in the suburbs and drive to yoga, it’s pretty safe to assume that your yoga mat hardly ever sees anything besides your car’s back seat and your yoga studio floor.

The problem is that whenever I roll out my mat I immediately want to pick up the, what seems like hundreds, of fuzzies and hairs.  No mater how many I pick off, there always seems to be more!

I was determined to find a solution so I thought, well I need something sticky.  What is sticky and on a roller?  A lint brush!  It was the perfect way to pick up all of those unwanted hairs and fuzzies off of your mat.  The first time I broke out the lint brush before class, everyone loved the idea.  Apparently this was revolutionary; no one had ever seen it before! Woo hoo go Kelsey!

What You Need

  • Pants Hanger (the kind with the two clips)
  • Sticky Lint Roller
  • Sponge
  • Swinging Door (closet door works well)
  1. Take your hanger and clip it on to the shorter side of your yoga mat.
  2. Hang your mat on a free swinging door.
  3. Lint roll one side and then the other.
  4. Dampen a sponge and wipe down each side.

That’s it!

View from our new house

I absolutely love our new place and feel so lucky to have found it. It’s a two bedroom house (adios apartment living) right on the river with an awesome view and deck to enjoy it.

Now let me tell you I am no stranger to moving. Since graduating college in 2009 I have lived in four different apartments in Boston and Connecticut. Everyone knows moving does not come stress free. There’s just nothing really fun about the process of packing up everything you own transporting it just to simply unpack it all. Fortunately with my years of experience I have learned a few things to help make the process a teeny bit smoother.
