I hope you all had a lovely weekend and here in the UK it is still ongoing as it’s a bank holiday weekend. Wohoo! Jamie and I are both off and have been speaking about going to Edinburgh today, we’ll so how we feel once he’s woken up. Poor Jamie got home from work after 4 this morning! So he’ll be sleeping for a while longer.
I on the other hand had decided to sleep in today, whenever I decide this I always end up waking up really early instead. Does this happen to anyone else? It’s like my body refuses to sleep in protest. So odd! So instead I got up and had my warm lemon water and decided to start my day.
I really wanted to go to the gym but because it’s a bank holiday Monday the gym doesn’t open until eleven so I decided to do some yoga at home instead. I didn’t do any yoga last week so it was just as well! I’m in no way a yoga expert but am really enjoying going to classes once or twice a week usually. Since I started doing this I’ve started feeling a gradual change in my body and have realised how important it is for me to destress.
During my final year of university, yoga, in addition continuing going to the gym despite feeling like I didn’t have the time, was my way of clearing my head and letting it rest from all the thoughts and pressure. It was something I had to do in order to perform well. I really see it as an investment in yourself taking that time to sweat or relax, which enables you to be at your best in life.
This morning I put on some yoga Youtube videos in the living room and rolled out my new yoga mat, I love the marble print on it! It’s actually purple but looks very blue in the photo for some reason. After about twenty minutes/half an hour I felt ready for breakfast! What could be better than a big bowl of porridge? Sooo good! What’s your go-to breakfast meal? Please share it with me!
Anyway, time for a shower! Can’t wait to see what this day brings.
Have an amazing Monday my lovelies xx
