Yoga

If you’re looking to improve your flexibility, calm your mind, and work on your core, there is one workout that does all of the above. Yoga! In college, I did rooftop yoga once a week on the roof of the gym at my school, and I absolutely loved it. Now, in the words of the yoga instructor, this was not “namaste yoga” this was “CORE yoga” and she was not kidding, it was a great workout, I felt relaxed, but I also felt it the next day, it was a serious workout. Of course, depending on what you prefer, you may choose a more relaxed yoga, a core yoga, or even hot yoga, though since I live in the South, unless it’s outside, I want my yoga air conditioned, but that’s just me.

No matter which you choose, there are plenty of benefits to it for both men and women. I slacked on it a bit after college, unfortunately finding a good yoga place here is difficult, so I started doing it myself at the house with the help of videos. No matter how you do it, you’ll notice the benefits. I always find myself more relaxed after a yoga session, and yes, it is a bit of a time commitment, but if you’ve always wondered and never tried it, I encourage you to do so. It’s definitely worth it.

Practice Yoga or Meditation

Take a few minutes, unroll your yoga mat, and practice some yoga or meditation. Give yourself a few minutes of finding your Zen and relaxing after the busy couple of days you’ve had. Holidays can be rough, so stay calm.

Mop the Floor Before You Leave the House

In the morning, allot yourself some time to quickly mop down your floors before you head out to work, school, yoga, wherever you’re going. This way, you’ll have clean, dry floors when you get back.

Join a Club

Adulting can be hard, so find a good outlet. Join a club, volunteer, join a sports league, take a yoga class. Whatever you enjoy doing, find a group that also enjoys it. You’ll make new friends, and improve yourself.
