I have always been a huge advocate for setting aside time to take care of one's mental and physical health. If you follow me on social media or are a member of my Get Up & Move facebook group, then you'll see me refer to Sundays as Self-care Sundays. It is so important to take time to rest and recharge in order to avoid burning out. Self-care is not selfish. It is an absolute necessity. Going for a walk, reading a book, drinking a cup of tea, watching a movie, dancing, spending time with your family, meditating, etc, are all some ways that you can practice self-care.
Starting Sunday, November 14, 2021, at 9:00am, you can also add practicing yoga with me to your self-care activities. This class was previously held in Riverfront Park, but it is now being moved indoors to Alternative Health Club located at 290 Chestnut Street in Newark, New Jersey. If you are unable to attend the class in person, you can log on from home and take class on Zoom.
