Before I got into the health and fitness field, I never really knew just how important sleep is when it comes to overall health and well being. 

I’ve been writing a lot about the importance of sleep over the past few weeks and learning everything I have, including the mind-blowing statistics from this Huffington Post piece, I’ve been very adamant about getting 8 hours every night. 

Educate yourself and if you have trouble getting to bed on time or falling asleep when you do, try an easy yoga practice (see the linked story) as part of your before bed routine. 

Stay healthy, Hungry Readers!

New habit for 2014: Logging all of my workouts in this nifty running journal. I just finished an hour of yoga! I picked a new video from YouTube today. I’ll be sharing the link on my blog later today.

40-Minute Vinyasa Flow Yoga

So you know that total body workout that kicked my booty yesterday? Well here’s the yoga routine I did this morning to counter it.

Great athletes aren’t straining their bodies with their minds. They’re just moving. They do what they do with power, grace, fluidity. They do it without thinking. They don’t need to make the decisions for their bodies. Athletes move for what they want, and trust their bodies to find the way.

This isn’t some concept reserved for a chosen elite. Why would you train to be good in your body, when you can train to be great? Why would you train to be good in your life, when you can train to be great?

This also isn’t just about how to have a great run or an inspiring climb, although it will get you there. It’s about how to be great in your life. You can stress and strain and obsess about controlling every movement in your life. Or you can trust that there’s a better way, that you already have it, and start using it.

Stop Immobilizing Your Body and Life- Strala Yoga

Over the weekend I hung out with Strala Yoga and Reebok at NYC’s Summer Streets and we did yoga in the middle of the road while it rained. It was fun. (DUH!)
