Turning forty has brought new sounds to my life. These sounds are, “Ugh!”, “Ouch!” and “Owwwwww!” when I get up in the morning. I am so freaking stiff and I don’t like this feeling. One of my co-workers was shelving books in my section and she shared that she has gained more flexibility over the last month because she is doing some stretching. Two things she does during the course of her work day are toe touches and tricep stretches. While shelving T will bend over and touch her toes, holding the stretch for a few seconds. When she is in the office she will do a tricep stretch on each arm as she walks through. I do toe touches with storytime but really need to work on my upper body. I am joining FitFluential’s 30 day yoga challenge to work on my flexibility. I don’t expect to be a rubber band woman by June but I do hope that waking up is no longer quite as dramatic as it is now.

Namaste and don’t forget to breathe
