Making time for "quiet time" during the work week
Yesterday I went to yoga class at my gym (with my favorite instructor, Michelle!). The session was wonderful - challenging yet relaxing and rewarding. After class I took Lucy down to the Burke Gilman trail for a spontaneous walk while the sun was setting. I felt so much peace and tranquility walking outside for just 10 minutes, observing my surroundings, and soaking in the "yoga high" I had from class. It made me realize how valuable it is to set aside "quiet time" (outdoors) during the work week. It also reminded me how fortunate I am to live in a beautiful city, have a great dog, and have a healthy body that allows me to do yoga, go for walks, and see my surroundings.
