Happy Weekend to you!

Are you a person that has found the relaxing qualities of Yoga or Tai Chi? No?! Well, you might want to think again.

The slow, accurate movements in Yoga and Tai Chi have these benefits:

1) Increasing Flexibility – Both forms have positions that act upon the various joints of the body including those joints that are never really on the ‘radar screen’ let alone exercised.

2) Mental benefits - Both forms tend to give you a clearer and more relaxed mind - and this can happen on day 1. Stress levels are also decreased.

3)Internal benefits - Both forms help improve the workings of internal organs, assist in better breathing, and also can help you sleep better.

Your challenge this weekend is to STRETCH & MEDITATE. You don't have to do Yoga or Tai Chi. You can just sit in a quiet room, in the park, or even in your backyard. Take slow, deep breaths. Slowly stretch. Kick the stress out the window and RELAX. Think positively and enjoy your surroundings.

QUICK NOTE: If you are a fan of Tai Chi or Yoga, feel free to share what you like about these forms with the group. Who knows? You just might encourage other team members to try something new!

Have a CLEAR AND RELAXED Weekend!

“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world
