I had an onslaught of nightmare last night and have been dragging like a half-human/half-zombie all day today as a result. (Is it normal for people my age to still be getting nightmares?!) I may have also had a breakdown at work that included tears for no discernible reason, BUT that is neither here nor there. I'm convinced that this sleeplessness and vulnerability to these "night terrors" is coming from some underlying anxiety that I haven't quite put my finger on just yet.... but luckily, I am a woman with a plan: YOGA.
I have been resistant to yoga for too long as I suspect I am the only person on the planet that hasn't jumped on board this proverbial "magic carpet ride" and really, for no good reason at all. Just one of those stubborn, I-am-not-a-bandwagon-person pointless stands I have a bad habit of making, in all honesty. But some force to be reckoned with has apparently decided to intervene through my dreams (how cheap) because now I am feeling compelled to look into ways to calm my nerves.
But before I completely surrender to this ethereal force without any glory, I have decided to reward myself for doing nothing and make the transition just a little bit easier by buying myself this yoga mat:
NOT ONLY am I going to be completely calmed while contorting my limbs because I am on this m̶a̶t̶ rug but you know I'm gonna be stylin' it up in the yoga studio and I have no shame in admitting that that is important to me :).
If you're like me and are always trying to put your best foot forward (I mean, you never know when you could meet the love of your life ;), this totally radical brand called "Magic Carpet Yoga Mats" has a fresh-to-death collection of yoga mat designs which include the following:
I mean, these mats could make even the hardest core of resisters convert to the yogi lifestyle, could they not? It's like yoga and home decor recently met and they created some gorgeous babies. The yoga room is about to be pimped, y'all!
Alright though babies, I'm just about spent so I'm signing off to go snag some zzz's. G'night!
