After Work Yoga Flow

I’ve been trying to do more yoga regularly versus one day a week. I realized that I really enjoy doing yoga right after work to let go of everything that happened in the day to help me wind down. It is especially nice to do in the evenings to prevent soreness the next day from my lunch workout. So roll out your mat, be kind to yourself, and STRETCH but don’t forget to breathe! ๐Ÿ˜‰ If you have any questions, feel free to comment below!

Signs of Caffeine Withdrawal + Alternatives to Coffee

Do you get really bad headaches in the morning or late afternoons and the onlyย wayย to cure them is to drink some coffee or a caffeinated drink? What about feeling extremely grumpy before your first cup of joe? You might be experiencing caffeine withdrawals and these are only a few of the symptoms. Caffeine withdrawal can happen when you stop drinking caffeine abruptly or when you โ€œcrashโ€ from the caffeine you previously drank (this can happen if you have 3+ caffeinated drinks per day).

Symptoms include:

  • Anxiety
  • Decreased Mood
  • Headache
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Difficulty Concentrating
  • Tremors

Yoga Flow #2

Song: Say My Name – Odesza

Please comment below if you would like me to type up all the poses I flowed through. Notice that I added a vinyasa between some poses to get my heart rate back up and to keep my body warm. My hamstrings and hips were extremely tight so I like to get sweating so they loosen up. I incorporated a lot of hip openers and hamstring stretches due to being sore from leg day + it helps contradict working a desk job and sitting for long periods of time.
