Moms' Night Out Yoga
As a mom of an almost-3-year-old, I know that being a mom brings a lot of joy to life, but it is also very demanding.
The emotional toll of parenting tiny humans can lead to some really un-joyful things like chronic stress and depression. Which is why I love going to Mom's Night Out with my local MOMS club.
Getting together with other moms is really helpful to de-stress a little and get advice from other moms who have "been there, done that."
What better way to decompress and let off some stress than to do yoga?
Get some of your mom friends together for some self-care and host a "yoga party." We'll do a 75 minute class, some aromatherapy and soothing music, and some meditation (unless you and your girls aren't into that). Just bring your mat.
Or make it a yoga and spa night. After practicing some relaxing yoga together, make some green tea and give each other facials.
It's good for your brain too.
You probably already know that yoga is good for a whole host of things like improving physical strength and flexibility, but did you know it's good for your brain too?
A 2015 study published in Frontiers in Human Neuroscience showed that people who practice yoga retain more gray matter in the brain, especially in the left hemisphere. Meaning, that the more you practice yoga, the more you are able to experience positive emotions (which are highly associated with the left brain).
So, even though sometimes the kids might get on your nerves, you'll be more equipped to stay positive!
