a bit of balance - and GIVEAWAY!

as you all know - i have been dealing with finding a bit of balance in my life. between work, launching anoragrey.com, training (well, overtraining) for triathlons, qualifying for nationals, and did i mention work - i have been searching for just the thing to help to balance and revitalize myself after suffering from lots of exhaustion. the solutions - always taking sunday off, ensuring proper eating patterns, and yoga + stretching ...

the main  focus. yoga and stretching. seriously, finding time to stretch is a huge challenge, but is important for not only athletes but everyone, providing some down time to regroup (but do stay away from your console tables while balancing - those corners hurt)... sooooo, that is why i chose just tri's first giveaway!!!! an eco friendly yoga mat!

how do enter:  leave comments to recommend your favorite way to take some down time, reconnect and revitalize yourself, and a winner will be chosen at random  9/15.

i cannot wait to hear your suggestions!


  1. I look for something around the house that doesn't require extreme attention to detail -- like vacuuming, cutting the grass or raking leaves. When my hands are occupied on something "mindless" my mind wanders away from problems & challenges and towards creativity & self. The completion of the task takes second seat to the feeling of being renewed.

  2. I love sitting in the hammock and reading a book.

  3. I love to just walk down a trail, breathe fresh air, and listen to the sounds of nature.

  4. I like to take a bubble bath to relax and unwind. It's so calming.
