Spring Restlessness

Ever have one of those days (or weeks) where you just can’t get comfortable? Your mind and your body are restless and refuse to calm down?

This photo perfectly depicts how I feel at the moment and also how I would like to feel instead:

Mindful

Thankfully, I’m having a yoga class with a few friends in my apartment today and will hopefully be able to approach a more mindful (not mind full!) state, as well as get out all the restless jitters from my body.

I don’t know what it is, but lately my world just feels full to brimming with…stuff: Thinking about getting all my papers together for my taxes, spending a good part of my week worrying about my driving test that happened yesterday (I passed! Yay probationary license!), trying to fit in exercise and fun things as well as trying to be patient with Maximus who is a super board and equally restless puppy during his recovery from surgery – I think we both need a really, really long and peaceful walk, but that will have to wait until he’s healed.

Then there’s the hurry-up-and-get-here vacation that I have planned. First vacation in more than a year (excluding Christmas)! Exciting, but also a bit nerve wracking as I will be meeting two of my husband’s siblings for the first time in person!

There are some other things cluttering and bumping around in my very full mind, but I’m too restless to write them down…so I think I’ll take my lunch break and go for a walk in the cold but bright sunshine. Plus, I’ve just discovered how awesome walking is for your health, body and mind, and I definitely need some of that this week.

Is the Spring air making you restless too?
