After a long work day with lots of sitting behind a desk, i decided to try some stretching, yoga or pilates in the evening. True, i don’t do it every evening – only on those when i am home early …. never mind that there are not so many of those.
After some 10, 15 or 20 minutes of an easy evening routine i feel refreshed and relaxed. I haven’t really noticed whether i sleep better due to the yoga ( or whatever it is i am doing), but i do enjoy the thought that ‘i have dedicated these minutes to myself alone’. Also, on such evenings i find it soothing to get in bed with a book and fall asleep with a feeling that my day has been put behind me, and another fresh one is about to start. Tomorrow.
Tonight i tried my brand new stability ball. It is very cool ( and i am sitting on it even now as i write :D )
The 20 minute routine below seems long at first sight – but i did not even notice the 18 minutes go by…. 18, not 20 – as close to the end of the video there is the relaxing phase, and i was not sure whether she was relaxing or if the video was buffering :)
