Power Of Vacation Time + Mental Health + March Update
Welcome to March, 2023!
I hope this note finds you doing well. This month I have a lot of links for you to check out pointed toward mental health and the importance of vacations. I feel like this time of year I need the most encouragement to keep moving, find social interactions, and eat well.
Since I last wrote, my younger daughter was in her first show at Walnut Hill School for the Arts, near Boston. It was a student directed production of several smaller plays. In the play, For Whom the Southern Bell Tolls, a parody T. William's, The Glass Menagerie, she played a tormented southern mother of two sons. It was funny and heartbreaking. Being in a show is a great accomplishment among the talent at school. Attending high school is still difficult, but I’m glad we can converse about what’s happening and discuss healthy responses to events.
My elder daughter turned 23 in January and is rocking her last semester of university. She was *nominated* to speak at commencement in May. She’s also being recognized for excellence as an undergraduate student, as one of eight students in the College of Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (800 total). She will hold a bachelor’s in psychology with a minor in communication studies. We are very proud of her accomplishments, hard work, and perseverance.
Teaching my online classes continue to provide structure in my week, exercise for body and brain, and creativity for my mind. Fascia, reslience, and comparing yoga and strength have been recent topics. Maybe you’ll join me with Pilates on Harrison ($39/month for any online classes) or visit my YouTube channel. I’ve mixed in some new videos.
If you missed my last blog post highlighting the importance of mindfulness in our movement, please check it out. I’m in the process of having my past newsletters available on my blog as well.
Take care, everyone! As always, I look forward to hearing from you!
