Hi! How is your day going? Did you already take a walk? Did you take the time to go out and contemplate nature? I personally am kind of a morning person for the technical stuff, but my creativity turns on by the evening, but what has helped me a lot is taking walks or going swimming very early in the morning, that’s my way to get up on the right foot and start the day in a good mood. By just taking a 30 mins walk I can admire nature (the river, the trees, the hills around us plus how slowly the day gets brighter) and can also watch people walking their dogs or jogging, is kind a being part of the same world, as silly as it may sound. Hope you find the time to go outside and just observe what is beyond the window of the office or home.

Have a great day!

Yoga is widely recognized as a stress-relieving practice. Various studies have shown that practicing yoga reduces feelings of anxiety as well as stifles the body’s physiological responses to stress—including, reducing inflammation.
