While teaching Yin Yoga for Athletes at Yogani last evening, a woman said “I’m supposed to be in three places right now!”
I replied, “You’re only supposed to be in one place.”
“No,” she countered, “I’m supposed to be here, at another stretching workshop, and at running club.”
We work, we train, we sleep. We repeat. We rest. Well, maybe when we’re sidelined by injury. Or someone takes us on a cruise. We recover. Which sometimes involves holding a martini. With bleu cheese olives.
Sometimes we try to find balance by adding more “balancing stuff” to our lives…a lecture on quality sleep on a Sunday afternoon, a podcast on effective business strategies while we run…
…or blogging about balance on a rainy morning instead curling up with a novel.
