Catching my Breath

It's been a VERY busy fall. Now it is time to draw back to center and realize that:
"Doing nothing is something." - Anna Quindlen
Have I been attending to own my health/fitness? No
Have I been taking time to B-R-E-A-T-H-E? No
Have I been listening to a single word of my own loving encouragement and advice? HECK NO!

Why???

No idea...No explanation...but No More Excuses!

Today is my time to begin (again)! Will you join me on my Journey back to wellness and possibly start one of your own? Will you?

All are invited...

Peace for your Pilates Path,
Robin

Saturday confessions...

I've been a little busy preparing to launch OurGift.Org here in the Palm Beaches. I have to confess that my Pilates self-practice has suffered a bit as a result. The challenge is now is to not beat myself up too much for getting distracted.

That's the great thing about practicing Pilates (or any kind of healthy habit).

All you have to do is BEGIN AGAIN...

Peace for your Pilates Path,
Robin

Better than Coffee

Here is a good computer tip for those of us who spend way too much time sitting and writing all day... Each time you log onto Facebook or Twitter or your own blog, take three complete, full Pilates breaths through your nose while you focus on your lateral rib expansion. Be sure to fully exhale every bit of your air through pursed lips as you contract your deep core musculature. Keep your upper shoulders soft and relaxed the whole time. 


This practice takes just a couple minutes but will greatly boost your energy much more than that reheated cup of coffee beside you. 


(See? I have one, too...)






Peace for your Pilates Path, Robin

Restless

Last night, I woke up at my usual 4am with my brain going a mile-a-minute. I have a whole relaxation routine I usually go through when this happens, but nothing was helping. So, I began working on my Pilates breathing techniques. After about 10 repetitions, I was yawning almost uncontrollably and asleep within minutes....Wow!
