Bon matin! As you all know, I'm extremely active & into fitness, but on some days, I like to do light activities, mostly because I've physically gone too hard prior, I'm on my period, I'm recovering from an injury, & / or I'm just trying to manage stress. Active rest days are days where you get some rest from following your normal fitness routine, but you still do some light exercises, so that you give your body some type of break, but you're not completely inactive. Some activities that you can do on active rest days include hiking, cycling, swimming, & / or yoga / pilates.
I love yoga & pilates. I like to open up the window curtains in my living room in the mornings because I love doing yoga & pilates in a sun-lit room. I have all of my equipment in there, including the new yoga wheel that I just bought, & I love it. Sometime's I'll do stuff on my own that I memorized, & sometimes, I'll follow some of my favorite Youtube video routines which I'll post down below. Yoga's one of the best & fastest ways to get toned & in shape, even more than cardio. I do yoga at home, at gym classes, aqua yoga in the pool, at the park with the Lulu Lemon Run & Yoga Club, etc., but one of my favorite places to do yoga is on the beach. Catch me doing sun salutation poses there. <3 Pilates will really help you tone both your stomach & your ass. In addition, pilates helps to strengthen your pelvic floor, meaning all of those kegels that you do will help sex feel even better. You also become more flexible over time after doing both yoga & pilates, & your muscles become less tense. My man asked me how I have such a nice ass arch during sex, & I think that it's because of all of those "Extended Puppy" poses from when I do yoga, lol.
Here are some of my favorite yoga videos on Youtube.
I'm so thankful for my ability to manage my life through physical activities. Now, you can, too. Take it easy. <3
