Need a moment to yourself or a way to unwind? Here are 2 of my favorite online resources that have helped me to fit in a little bit of self care when life is feeling a little crazy.
Yoga with Adriene - I am a huge YWA fan and Find What Feels Good (FWFG) fan. Adriene runs a subscription based website called Find What Feels Good and for $9.99 a month you get access to all her videos. Before you sign up for the subscription service be sure to check out her Youtube channel where she releases one free yoga video a week. If you are someone who has tried yoga in the past and have been unable to get beyond the sometimes pretentious vibe of yoga then check out Adriene. Adriene has a down to earth style, great sense of humor and is body inclusive and affirming. Here's a like to the YWA Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/yogawithadriene and a link to her subscription based website: https://yogawithadriene.vhx.tv/
Breathe with Calm - Feeling a little keyed up and anxious? Just got some bad news and want to scream and cry but you got to go pick up the kids (Hey, no judgement, I’ve been there), take a moment and breathe. Breathe with Calm is a website that guides you through a breathing exercise with written instructions and a visual. https://www.calm.com/breathe
If you have 30 minutes this week, log onto the Yoga with Adriene Youtube channel and give one of her sessions a try. If you find yourself short on time or having periods of high anxiety and stress this week, give the Calm website a try.
