6 Simple Yoga Practices that Can Help You Get Through a Rough Day

6 Yoga Practices to get you through a rough dayWe all have those days.  Sometimes you’re being pulled in a million directions, and there just isn’t enough of you to go around.  Sometimes it’s just one looming deadline, one angry boss or one terrifying task that seems insurmountable.  Then there are those surprise attack days when you wake up thinking it’s a totally manageable, happy day, then kapow! flat tire, spilled coffee on laptop, broken heel, angry client, and is that a cold coming on or does my head just feel fuzzy from thinking too much?

It’s easy to let the stress and pressure fuel our days.  I’ve certainly had my fair share of cortisol-driven accomplishments, but it’s that kind of mindset that takes us to unhealthy places.  Letting the perceived urgency of the demands on our time drive our moment-by-moment action leads to auto-pilot reactions, quick fixes and runaway stress.

Enter yoga.  Sure yoga is a great tool…

Disabled dog runs for the first time thanks to 3D-printed legs | The Verge

http://www.theverge.com/2014/12/18/7414591/disabled-dog-runs-for-the-first-time-thanks-to-3d-printed-legs

Look what one lady’s dream of seeing this dog who was born without two front paws-run did. She had a dream of seeing him run and brought that vision to a caring team of  prosthetic designers working very advanced 3D computer software and caring about seeing one sweet dog run again.

See what can happen when one person acts as a catalyst for change? Miracles happen.

This story brought tears to my eyes because I love animals and it was so wonderful to see this sweet dog happy.
