I don’t know about you, but life around here seems extra busy the past few months! I feel like I am working harder than ever to get everything done for my family, my business, and my community. I am constantly thinking about how I can use my time more efficiently, especially when it comes to my yoga practice. Daily yoga keeps me sane, no matter how chaotic the rest of my life becomes.
Last month, I had a chance to chat with Chandra Davis, the founder of Drink Chia!, about how our busy lives force us to be more efficient in our workouts. The conversation became a blog post for the Drink Chia! website, and something that I also wanted to share with you here. It reminds me, again, that changing our lives begins with changing what we believe.

It forces me to think about what I want to accomplish, and how I can get it done efficiently. How can I get my heart rate up quickly? Which poses build muscle? Where do I need to create space in my body?
We can do a lot in a short amount of time, if we approach our mat strategically. (Read the full article here.)
