Yoga

So today I wanted to talk about yoga. It’s a wonderful thing yoga and it’s been around for many many years but didn’t seem to get popular until the 21st century.

I tried doing yoga about 5 years ago and I didn’t like it. I had a horrible experience and it just didn’t feel right to me. I then came across a new studio a little over a year ago. I decided to try it out with my mom and when I did, I loved it. It was just a brand new experience for me. From going in and the atmosphere surrounding me to the actual room where we did the yoga and it just made total sense to me and I was hooked immediately. The other yoga class I went to wasn’t even a yoga studio. It was at a park nature center and it was cold, dark, dirty, and the teacher just wasn’t that great. So I think that makes all the difference, finding the perfect studio and teacher.

Now I go to yoga a few times a week and do all kinds of yoga, depending on my mood. I tried meditation for the first time the other night and it was very nice. Very relaxing and definitely very helpful with taking my stress away.

I really recommend doing yoga, it really does help with stress and stretching feels so amazing. It can be a workout though depending on the kind of yoga you do. I did try Barre yoga a few times and that was so tough but it was a great workout, however, I was sore for a few days afterwards. I enjoy a class where I can relax and all my cares and stress just melt away.

So that’s my yoga talk for today. I hope everyone has an amazing day!

What Makes You Happy?

I want to know what makes you happy, what catches your eye? I would really like to hear some feedback from everyone. It’s fun to hear other ideas being thrown around.

I like to listen to music, I guess it depends on what kind of mood I’m in. I could be on a high and want to listen to something poppy, or I could be in a sensitive mood and want to listen to Country, or in a mellow mood and listen to New Age. I’m all about the music and it making you feel good. They say music is a form of therapy, I believe it. It could turn your world from bad to good. It’s an amazing thing what music could do.

Yoga definitely makes me happy. It helps with stress, which I tend to get a lot of at times. I try and go at least three times a week. It just feels so amazing. Usually I’ll go to yoga and I feel like frazzled and then I’ll leave yoga a completely different person. I love it!

Reading is another thing that makes me happy. I like to read all kind of genres. Whatever pulls me in for a good read, I’m there. Currently I’m reading “The Girl on the Train.” I have seen the movie though, but was very interested in reading the book.What kind of books do y’all prefer to read? Don’t forget to check out my novel Not Alone on Amazon, I had to throw that in there haha.

Movies is another thing that makes me happy. I love movies and I have a ton of them at home. I have Netflix and I have Firestick so I always have movies to watch. My favorite kind of movies are scary movies, it’s an adrenaline thing. I do like all kinds of movies though, Romance, Comedies, Action, whatever. It all thrills me. What kind of movies do you like?

My fur babies make me happy. I have two kitties and two doggies and when I wake up in the morning, I see them and it makes me so happy. I love them so much. I’m such an animal lover. If I could have like 5 dogs I would, but I can’t 🙂

I can’t forget the last thing, writing makes me absolutely happy. Writing my blogs, writing my books, just writing in general. I just really enjoy it.

So please tell me, what makes you happy?
