It is the time of the year where the days get shorter, the temperatures get lower, and allergies flare up! If you are like me and get seasonal allergies then you know how annoying it can be. I’m actually hitting the tail end of a seasonal allergy attack as I type this. When I first got sick I did some research on essential oils that can help allergies. I played around a bit with mixing different oils until I found some blends I liked. I used a diffuser when I was at home to treat the symptoms but when I was at work I used my allergy oil roller. I didn’t have to take any medication!
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! 😉 If you have any questions, feel free to comment below!
Do you get really bad headaches in the morning or late afternoons and the only way 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 “crash” from the caffeine you previously drank (this can happen if you have 3+ caffeinated drinks per day).

- Difficulty Concentrating

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.
Fun little video of my yoga flow before my phone died/got overheated. The Arizona sun is NOT one to be messed with. It was in the 80’s and yet my mat still felt like hot lava. Enjoy 🙂 Music: Black Out Days By Phantogram
