As part of my self-care goals for 2013, I took the first yoga class this afternoon I have taken in over ten years. It was a Restorative Class that lasted an hour and a half. I think the hardest part was quieting my mind.
A few client projects began seeping in, but I tried really, hard to relax. And I did….so much so that by the end, I had fallen asleep three times. It helped that some of the poses were held for 3-7 minutes.
I thought for sure that I would just want to go home and crash after being so relaxed. Instead, I was full of energy! And I had several REALLY great design ideas after my class for client projects I am designing. What a great shortcut to creativity!
Another one of my goals is planning a trip for Mr. M and I this Spring. Since I already have planned a beach vacation for the family this summer, I thought about a non-beach plan for he and I.
But someone suggested Costa Rica today and after doing a little research, I think that maybe these images, paired with Pantone naming Emerald as THE color, will help me make my decision. Stunning, to say the least.
Maybe I can do yoga on the beach in Costa Rica!! Have you traveled to Costa Rica? Any suggestions?
