Life has been very overwhelming lately, so much so I’m left wondering if the Path of Totality is bringing with it more than the eclipse.
I’m not immune to the toll stress takes on our health or the unhealthy ways we cope with stress. Most of the time I turn to the gym to relieve stress and center myself, but sometimes it’s not enough – even for me. This week I’ve been turning to food for comfort. A dessert here, extra carbs there, one too many glasses of wine here and there. I had planned to post about my recent stay at Tribute Hotel in Orange County, but the Path of Totality had different plans for my day. I just didn’t have the time or the energy.
It’s important to practice self care, especially when overwhelmed. For me, writing, working out, and cooking healthy meals are just a few ways I practice self care. All things that become harder when stress is high and energy is low.
This morning as I walked into the gym I felt lost – my head a fog and my heart heavy. I knew a hardcore sweat session was needed, but I didn’t have the capacity to think one up. I turned to an oldie but goody and decided this is what I would post about today.
I hope you’re having an incredible weekend and not effected by the astrological pulls, but if your feeling challenged and need an escape, as I did this morning, I hope this workout does it for you.
Thanks for reading!
