Being self-employed can be a solitary type of existence. Ditto being a writer, which is well-documented and why so many of the great ones are driven to drink. (Kidding… sort of).
I’m not much of a drinker. I can handle my kombucha or a couple glasses of wine, but give me more than that and, well, it’s my version of New Year’s Eve. Naturally, I’m OK with a low tolerance, since less alcohol means more money in my wallet, calories to dedicate to chocolate, and hopefully brain cells.
What was I saying again? Oh, right… solitary existence. See, it’s in my best interest to preserve brain cells.
For me, the better elixir of sanity is collaboration, and I am lucky to partner with some amazing people and organizations who lift me up and make the solopreneur existence less lonesome. One of my latest sources of inspiration is my relationship with Runner’s World, as the creator of its new online Yoga Center. Yesterday, RW released our second video of a series shot in September. The free 30-minute sequence focuses on a runner’s most overused muscles groups: hips, hamstrings, and glutes, along with a grounding meditation that’s ideal for soothing pre-race jitters or simply relaxing after a long day. It’s also a great option for yogis short on time and wanting to practice at home. Try it; I’d love to know what you think!
Thank you, Runner’s World, for giving me the best kind of buzz, the healthy, clearheaded high that comes from creating something new with people you enjoy and admire.
Sending love and light feet to all of you. Cheers!
