March has always been my least favorite month. You're so close to spring, blue skies and warmer weather, but until April rolls around you're still in the depths of winter and it's grey, dreary, and a random blizzard is always a possibility. I need some warmth and sunlight in my life! Does anyone else feel like they're going a little crazy? What do you do to keep your spirits up?
I've been trying to stay busy. We are moving soon, so I've started to organize our stuff. The beauty (and pain) of moving is having to weed through all the crap we've accumulated and get rid of what we don't use. I've got a rule that if I haven't worn something all season, I've got to get rid of it. (Anyone a size 7.5? I've got some over-the-knee boots that need to go.)
On the yoga front I've been focusing on poses I don't love like forearm stand. I have this fear that my forearms will give out and I'll crash to the mat head first and break my neck, which I know will not happen because I know I have the strength in my upper body and forearms. I need to keep working on this pose so I can get out of my own head a bit. Weird how our minds can get in the way of what our bodies can do.
Because the cold weather tends to affect my joints, I've been trying to stay warm- exercising helps, hot baths, my favorite green tea, and curling up with a book (I'm reading this) under a bunch of blankets. Brighter days (literally), are just around the corner- come on, April!
