5 for Friday!

5 random things that made my day recently. Here we go: 

Yin yoga. I tried this last Sunday thinking it was going to be a slow restorative practice. Wrong! It was slow but very intense. In yin yoga you hold asanas for 5 to 10 minutes and the purpose is to release your connective tissue as it holds tightness. In a way you ‘lubricate’ it. Our body golds to trauma and memorizes the pain that’s why yin yoga can release also an emotional tightness. Challenging and beautiful!

Tweet by Rich Roll (@richroll) on his 52 birthday. If you don’t know about this guy he’s a ultra-marathon runner, triathlete, wellness ambassador, author and host of amazing podcast. And vegan. His story is incredible and the best part is that he didn’t figure his life out when he was 20 or 30 but much later. His ,message in his birthday was: age is just a number, the important thing is to find your meaning in your own time.

Golden milk. You know I love wine but recently my drink of choice is golden milk! No, that sounds sad and false. Still, I’ve been drinking it a lot lately. Golden milk is a mix of spices but the main one is tumeric (it makes your curry yellow) and on a cold evening it’s a perfect soothing hot beverage. Try it!

Guilty pleasure: “The discovery of witches”. I never read Twilight or saw a movie but this book seems to be in the same genre: witches, vampires, demons. I guess I’ve been reading to many serious books and manuals lately and I have to give my head a break. Still, it’s written quite well and it’s been made into a series. It’s the most frivolous book I read in a while and I’m not ashamed to say it.

Running in the dark. I did it on Tuesday. 6.30 am and it was a strange experience as I don’t do it so often any more. When I used to do it I was running early in the morning in the city while now I ran in the suburbs. Pitch black. It was really amazing, strange, scary and thrilling experience. I’ve seen a Big Dipper on the sky and a lots of hares passed my way. I was a bit scared as I didn’t know where to put my feet but it was exhilarating at times. Not won’t fancy waking up at 6am again but still..
