Ms. Crabby Pants comes out …

This magnet hangs discreetly in my cube.

Work has been busy, exhausting, overwhelming, frustrating, etc. lately.

Sometimes I deal with stress well and other times I don’t.

I have been really trying to and focusing on practicing yoga “off the mat” while at work the past few weeks.

Sometimes I am successful and other times not so much.

I wrote about practicing yoga off the mat a couple of weeks ago as well.

I took a picture of this magnet hanging in a store in my neighborhood. I think it is hilarious.

I have been focusing on my breathing and to not instantly react or say something but to take a breath or two or choose my words wisely or choose not to say anything at all. Sometimes I am successful and sometimes I am not.

And when I am not successful Ms. Crabby Pants comes out …

But I am working on it and thinking about it almost constantly.

I wonder if the excess caffeine is a good idea or a bad idea? Hmmm.

I have to say that I know my spinning and yoga practice are helping to keep it somewhat at bay. I am able to work out some of my frustrations as well as work on my breathing and practicing calmness.

    As my friend always tells me, “Just do a WOOO SAAAA every once in a while and it’ll make everything feel just a tad better.” 🙂 Plus, you have me!

    Making sure I’m hydrated always helps with this, for me, too.

    That’s a good one, Nicole. I am usually pretty good with the water intake. But sometimes I am dehydrated.

    Although it is safe to drink caffeine, but I suggest you take it only once every three days or something similar to that because too much caffeine does make your perk up, like most people I know. And also, continue practicing yoga, it helps release a lot of stress.
