Happy, Soulful 2013 with lots of Magical Adventures and Exciting Discoveries!!
Here's me and Daniel, on our way to a New Year's party here in Vegas (where the first pic was taken) to dance the night and year away! And below is a beautiful DIY resolution/vision/dream jar for 2013 by darling Rebekah from Australia! Hard to argue with 'clearheadedness'. L-O-V-E it. It got me thinking too, more about that later. But if you made/will make a jar too, let me see it!! :)
Now. Yoga. Daniel and I both want to exercise more this year and so we looked up a studio closest to us and checked it out yesterday, Bikram Yoga Summerlin. Funnily enough we didn't realize it was hot yoga, meaning that the studio was very humid and heated up to 105F/40C. After the first 10 minutes I was dizzy and nauseous and had to soon sit down and gather my soggy self while drinking water with trembling hands. I wasn't sure I could stay for the whole 90min class. But we pushed through it and when it was all over I felt great.

It's amazing what a little yoga can do. A snowball effect of healthiness, clearheadedness (!) and better living, for body and spirit, really, it is! We felt so good after the yoga that we started eating healthier (and we already eat pretty healthy!). We try to drink now at least 3 liters of water a day. We started waking up really early, and we get much more accomplished in a day than before. And it's just been two days! :) Yes, we went again this morning and it was a lot easier and time went by quickly. Turns out I'm more flexible than I thought (or maybe it's just the "weather" in the studio that does it). Yay!

That makes me see that when each moment is stripped down of its layers created by the mind, you can be in touch with a really amazing inner peace. Then even the simplest thing of breathing (which you normally don't pay any attention to at all) becomes super enjoyable and exciting. And that I think is the reality and a type of clearheadedness I'd love to nurture and increase and focus on and learn from this year, starting from...this moment! <3
