Many of you will know I launched my online shop Southwood Stores just over two months ago. The response I have received has been quite over whelming and I apologise now if I have been clogging up all your social media feeds. Starting any new venture is always very exciting, I seem to always be coming up with a new idea. I get really excited and hope that this one will be the one!! I work so hard, my eyes pop open in the morning and I am straight on my ipad or phone to check social media platforms. I work all day (between school drop offs) and I literally mean all day!!! I never switch off, I was exactly the same with all my new business ventures.
If you are reading this post and it all feels like a familiar story I want to SCREAM at you BE KIND TO YOURSELF!!!! Please please take time even if it is only one or two hours a week where you can do something where there is no access to a laptop, phone or computer!!
I started cycling back in April but now the weather is beginning to turn I have joined a Yoga class. Now I really wasn't really too keen on the idea but my best friend who I don't see enough of asked me along. The last experience I had of yoga was about 10 maybe 12 years ago and the class was held in a dark dreary school hall. The floors were dusty and crumb covered and I never really took to it at all. But off we went to Whitespace Yoga Studio in Stony Stratford. Yoga is particularly great for people with high blood pressure, stress, aches and pains and even helps with depression. There is a fab NHS information page you can have a quick read of telling us all about the proven benefits!!
For me this seems to be the perfect combination, cycling and yoga are really helping me to switch off even if it is only for an hour at a time. It really is a MUST for anyone working really hard
