Appreciate the downtimes! 

Engaging with and appreciating both the ebb and flow of the cycles of life is crucial to really get the value and meaning of it all. Tara Sophia Mohr says it beautifully in 'The Rhythm'. (From her book: Your Other Names):

In any creative feat

(By which i mean your work, your art, your life)

There will be downtimes.

Or so it seems.

Just as the earth is busy before the harvest

and a baby grows before its birth

there is no silence in you

There is no time of nothingness.

What if,

during the quiet times

when the idea flow is hushed and hard to find

you trusted (and yes i mean trusted)

that the well was filling, the waters moving?

What if you trusted

that for the rest of eternity,

without prodding, without self-discipline,

without getting over being yourself,

you would be gifted every ounce of productivity you need?

What would leave you? What would open?

And what if during the quiet times you ate great meals

and leaned back to smile at the stars,

and saw them there, as they always are

nourishing you?

There are seasons and harvest,

Is only a fraction of them.

There is the rhythm that made everything.

The next time you stand in the kitchen, leaning,

the next time a moment of silence catches you there,

hear it, that rhythm, and let it place a stone in your spine.

Let it bring you some place beautiful

Appreciate the downtimes! I do concur with this great reminder from this post. Because in our downtimes, we are sharpened, we are strengthened, we learn a lot. Our experience is our best teacher, thus, it is helpful for us to experience both sides, to experience the ups and downs of life.

Downtimes cannot be avoided, but so are good times. While downtimes cannot always be looked at as something favorable, we still must try to enjoy it. It's a time for us to rest and learn something new. Lessons need not be hurtful all the time. We just need to look at the brightside of things. We are being interrupted for a good reason.

I can not choose whether to get a regular media exercise with the dish set, or the bowflex 10-90 weight loads. It seems like you can do more with flexible weight loads. But I'm not sure. Your opinion?

Yoga includes different aspects of exercise. There's no doubt--you have to warm-up before you start running. Make it a habit each time you run to warm-up.
