For Your Weekend

Sacramento R Street

Happy Friday from Sacramento! It seems that our true spring is finally here — warm, sunny days are ahead — and I couldn’t be more excited. The school year is coming to a close, my students are starting to prepare for finals, and summer vacation is just around the corner. I have so much to share with you this summer!

This weekend we’re staying in town catching up with friends, and I’m hoping to start a new exercise regimen to include at least one long walk per day and yoga first thing in the morning. Any tips? As always, links to my favorite articles from the past week are below. xo

This is what I’m watching this weekend (did you watch the other seasons? I especially enjoyed Season 1 so am wondering how #3 will be)

Why do we make children sleep alone? Interesting!

Would you ever go to the Chernobyl exclusion zone? The photos are eerily fascinating (and the animals!)

  • My friend Jenni Rawlings has a yoga channel on vimeo that is an affordable monthly subscription. That means you can take your classes anywhere.
    For walking, you can get a book by Katy Bowman (Move Your DNA, Simple Steps to Foot Pain Relief) and do the exercises in them. We all walk, but very few of us walk properly! Also, I would suggest transitioning to minimal footwear (less heel!) for walking.
    (I went to CT in 2011, I went hiking there 1 or 2 days before the big disaster flood/mudslides!)

      Thanks so much for all the suggestions. I will check out her yoga channel. I have good yoga DVDs but I don’t feel excited about doing them sometimes. I love to take long walks but haven’t thought about how to walk properly. My husband runs, and after experiencing pain in his knees, he did some research and realized that he wasn’t running properly.
