Daily Yoga and a Surprise in the Mail!

Happy New Year, everybody!!!!

I am a firm believer in the healing power of yoga. That, combined with my resolution this year to take better care of myself (also, temporary insanity, because I just don't have time for anything right now!!!), prompted me to sign up for World Yoga Practice Month. It basically means you commit to yoga practice (even just ten minutes a day) every day in January. I'm hoping that it will compel me to be a more consistent practitioner, because heaven knows I need to work on consistency.

If you've never practiced yoga, I encourage you to talk to your health care provider and then consider finding a class: . Practice can cover a wide range of abilities, from gentle stretching to hard-core power yoga that leaves you drenched in sweat. I am a hard-core power yoga kind of girl, but I think that's because I have some pretty hard-core stressors going on right now.

And, I got a lovely surprise in the mail - the bag I won from Threads of Friendship - it is just about the cutest OR bag you ever saw! I'll try to post photos tomorrow. In the meantime, rest assured that I am just about the most stylin' chick in the operating room right now, with my perfect little bag! But, you'll see that for yourself! :)

Congrats on winning the bag, can't wait to see it!

Congratulations on winning, Terri!

I have done yoga in the past, although I've recently gotten out of the habit. I use it more for relaxation and flexibility. I don't practice it as often as I would like but maybe I will get back to it. Good luck to you with your daily goal. :)
