Morning Practice + Healthy Eats 2.10

My morning practice is more restorative today as I strained my hip a little and have to allow it to rest. It is important that we listen to and take care of our bodies.

I am also practicing the Gyan Mudra in my seated meditation which is said to relieve tension and create peace and calm. The tips of the thumb and index finger touch while the other fingers are straight and relaxed. Try it on your own and focus on your breath as you meditate. Namaste.

FYI I am wearing “Is Mai Tai Crooked?” from the new OPI Hawaii 2015 Collection! It is a beautiful tropical orange shade that looks great on different skin tones.
