Yesterday I was a slave to my computer. Not in a bad way. In fact, my words and ideas were flowing as the rain poured down outside my hotel room window in downtown Los Angeles. It felt good to start the new year feeling motivated on a Sunday to get some things done. There was a mirror on the wall across from the desk and I made eye contact with myself. Wow, I thought, I need to stretch.
One of my New Year’s Affirmations is to stretch every single day. Some days I have the time and space to practice at home or a yoga studio, but on the days I don’t I often find myself seated with my silver laptop for ample periods of time. It had been five days since the bliss of stretching and lengthening my muscles during a proper yoga class and I could really feel my shoulders, neck and back tense and rigid. This hotel desk chair isn’t exactly ergonomic.
