Yoga Nidra – started my day with Chandra Om’s Yoga Nidra. Yoga Nidra is ‘yogic sleep’. You don’t actually sleep, but you relax your body and mind. I have become a real fan of Yoga Nidra and have several CDs that I enjoy.

I’ve started a new 100 day commitment today. 10 minutes of yoga postures per day. My original thought was to do it between 6 and 7 am but Cammy from made a point that perhaps it is the time of day that I’m fighting – not so much the act of doing it so I’ve adjusted my goal to be ’10 minutes of yoga postures at any time during the day’. That way, if I want to do them first thing in the morning – no problem but if I want to do them while watching Jon Stewart or Y&R, no problem with that either. Thanks Cammy! It’s good to have suggestions from others – helps me think outside the box.

Here’s my deets for the day….
