Stress is something I don't handle well. I have learned a new trick in the past couple of months from my manager. " Do what you can!" For me this has been a huge learning curve. I find it very helpful. She has taught me do a bit each day. Now I had heard this before but for some reason it really hit me. I am finding these two things very helpful.
Lately though I feel so tight. That if someone hit me I would break. I felt as though I was holding everything in my body and it didn't feel good. I knew I had to change something. So I have only done two nights of yoga and what a difference. Why do we forget these things that feel so good for us? Twenty five minutes of relaxation and pulling my body into bliss. Yoga -for me -is all about relaxing. I don't need any pressure or expectations. I just want to stretch into relaxation.
I have also started eating better. We have been eating out way too much in my house and I feel it. I am going to go back to some smoothies and juicing for summer. I also want to get into lots of salads for summer. I was telling my friend Maura that I wanted to start trying recipes from Pinterest . I will post them on here if I like them.
My life will be changing for work again. It will get more stressful. I need to get some steps and systems in place to combat stress. This month is all about that. So talk soon and Chow for now.

What is it about the sun??? I love it!!!! I am sitting outside drinking wine in the sun after work and iI just thought " this is amazing!! " I love this time of year I can get home at 6:30 and still be able to enjoy at least 3 more hours of sun. It makes me feel grateful and happy. I can hear all the bird singing to each other. A fly sat on my arm. I could smell the just burnt grass smell in the air. Life is so good and tonight I love where I am.
