No matter how busy I get (see this post for why I’m so busy right now), there are three things I need to keep my sanity:
- At least 7 (but usually 8) hours of sleep per night. What would otherwise be a normal day can easily turn into a total meltdown if I don’t get enough sleep.
- Regular exercise (at least some sort of movement every day).
- Healthy food (plus the occasional glass of wine, obviously).
Last night, after a very productive day knocking out a bunch of schoolwork, I took a much needed break — both physical and mental — at Franklin Street Yoga.
I always leave that place feeling tired, but also good as new, mentally. I went to my usual 1.5 hour power yoga class — I love hard yoga classes because you get the perfect combination of a solid workout + some serious mental relaxation. No computer, no email… just me and the mat. Plus, we had a dance party while in chair pose. What’s not to like? 🙂
How have you been making time for yourself lately? It’s just as important as being productive! I also may or may not be obsessed with The Vampire Diaries (I’m watching my way through the 1st season on Netflix Instant) and have been treating myself to one episode in the evenings. Last night’s was watched while folding laundry and tidying up — multitasking win!
