This picture is a good reflection of my mood today – dreamy, random and light.
I was practically out the door this morning. iPod and shoes were on when it started raining. I quickly decided I didn’t want to get wet before class, so I water-proofed everything I took with me. But since I was already running a few minutes late in leaving, it was not going to happen in a timely manner.
I decided to exercise at home with my Simply Tai Chi dvd instead. Here is a bit from the opening part of DVD that explains what made me like this form of exercise: Tai Chi is a martial art that helps to improve and maintain good health. It represents a way of life and allows one to meet day to day challenges with energy, while remaining calm and relaxed inside. Some of the first noticeable benefits are a feeling of relaxation and well being, as well as becoming aware of which body parts are tense and how to relax them. Tai Chi also flows into other areas of life and brings an overall relaxed balanced and healthy approach to anything one does. Since my mind is usually going 100 miles per hour, all that is pretty appealing to me, even if just for an hour.
As I sit here at 41 years young, it’s more apparent than ever that exercise is a must in my life. Being one who is not much for breaking a sweat, I’m paying closer attention to how I feel when I don’t exercise in order to motivate my self to keep up with it. I feel better in so many ways when I do – even Paul notices the difference.
