Living in NYC is stimulating for the senses. I thrive off of the heartbeat of the city, yet as work and family demands intensify the need to slow down and reset has become a necessity. I have been practicing yoga for over twenty years. I began in college for stress management and perspective. Yoga has helped me manage the inflammation of Crohn’s disease and I have practiced through all three pregnancies up until the day I delivered. This year I added a guided meditation into the mix and the effects have been amazing. 1 Giant Mind is a great app developed by a dear friend’s partner. Download the app, plug in your headphones, find a quiet place, and take a few minutes each day to reset. Try it for a week and see what happens. Some of my favorite accessories above.
