40 Days of Relaxation - Day 33

Wednesday, March 2, 2011 - Day 33
It was another hard day for me. It's that time of year where other places are warming up but Duluth is getting colder. Spring equinox is just around the corner but over night we had temps down to -10. Ugh!

I didn't have to teach today but Dave and I had our final Northeast Entrepreneur's Fund "Be Strategic, Grow Your Business" class tonight. We had walked to this class all winter but gave up on walking for our final class because it was so dang cold out (in March!).

I know I am much less bothered by weather and lack of sunlight than I used to be before I had yoga but I still get down when it's cold, dark and should be spring but it isn't. So again, I am grateful for this practice that is "forcing" me to relax and take time out for myself. I listened to Robin Carnes's 1st Yoga Nidra album, longer Yoga Nidra track. It was very soothing and a good mental pick-me-up.

For tonight's practice (Thursday) I am going to Margaret's "Thai Restoration" class: Thai Yoga bodywork combined with restorative postures. YUM!

I am catching up on your challenge posts! Even though I live in the SW, I still feel a mood difference when it's cold and grey versus warm and sunny. I completely understand and wonder if there is something biological that causes that reaction. Also, do men experience it as much as women?

We also recently finished the Big Love season, and you are right, Bill is the opposite of relaxed. :)

Off to prenatal yoga. Love ya.

Hi Laurel - Thanks for stopping by. I have often wondered about who experiences S.A.D. more, men or women, or is it equal?
