Make your vote count.

Election Day in the US  promoted a consumer fever only possible in a country where the cost of the whole election was half the money spent on Hallowe’en costumes and sweets.  An ’ I Voted’ sticker ensured anything from free doughnuts, a choice between a restaurant’s “right wing” turkey bowl and the “left wing” chicken bowl to a free holiday destination flight to recover!  If that didn’t hit the spot, activewear retailer Lulemon offered free yoga classes to frazzled voters in Washington, Maryland, and Virginia. THE choice to chill out and relax!

How is the year shaping up?

In the current economic situation, being able to shop freely may not be possible, some of us may have to ebay possessions to raise needed cash. Or it could be much worse than that. In the Eight Limbs, Yoga encourage us not to be too attached to things, to be content with what we have, but also to be kind to ourselves. If life doesn’t always go the way we want it to, we should try to go easy on ourselves and avoid heaping blame and negativity on our head. And that can be hard to do…so spending a few minutes doing a few calming  or even energetic postures can help the process by focusing the mind on the body instead. Give a few downward-facing dogs a go, or a focusing balance…they can work wonders!
