I think I’m getting old. No, for real! I’m not sure what this Monday was all about but I’m forgetting things, like IMPORTANT things. Don’t believe me? Well, you tell me!
- I couldn’t remember where I put my wedding and engagement rings during our trip up north. *Okay, fine, I knew that they were in my purse, but then I couldn’t find them there because they fell out from a pocket I put them in. I made my hubby to do a detour to come back home to check pockets of my sweater, only to find them back in the car in my purse.*
- I forgot my Ipod at work which is a MUST have when I run. *As a result, I had to use my phone as a replacement. But then I had to ask Justin for his headphones because I couldn’t remember where I out mine.*
- I completely forgot *or maybe simply didn’t realize* that my gym membership expired last week… and forgot to bring my wallet with me *on the day when my hubby dropped me off there to top it off*. Thank goodness, a guy was nice enough to let me in to work out.
Isn’t forgetfulness a sign of aging? Or could it be a sign that I’m stressed out and mentally tired? In all honesty, I’m hoping it’s the latter! Haha!
Alright, my day looks nothing like that. But I’m sure you know what I mean!
So what do I have planned for a workout today?
Run 4 miles and perform 15 burpees every 15 minutes (If you can’t do 15 continuous repetitions, do 3 sets of 5 with 30 seconds in between each set).
Afterwards, I decided to have my first meditation session ever to get my stress levels under control. I find that the following Infographic provided me with the important basics to get me started. What do you think?
Do you meditate on a regular basis? What helps you get into the mood?

I could not sit in that pose for the life of me, zero flexibility. I’ve never meditated and I’ve only done yoga a few times, it just doesn’t suit me very well. I’d rather de-stress with a good book, a mindless movie, or a walk with my dogs 🙂
That’s my only concern haha! I shall see tonight 😀 xoxo
Good luck with the meditation. I always find my mind goes crazy and I start thinking of 10,000 things I need to do when I’m in yoga or meditating. I guess practice makes perfect though and it’s such a good destressor!
Thank you! I think I’m at the point I’m ready to try out anything haha! xoxo
I don’t meditate, so I am interested to hear how it goes for you. I get really forgetful when I am super stressed!! Yoga has helped me a lot with that!
I’ll definitely let you know, Sara! I’ve done yoga too, I find it calmes me down quite a bit. By the way, I meant to ask a while ago, but I can’t seem to find your blog when I click on your name, you might want to look into that! Plus, I am really curious to read it, so please give me a link! xoxo
Nevermind, I just made a connection ❤ However, do look into this issue, the link should always bring you to your new site ❤
I’ve been wanting to try meditation forever – I can’t wait to hear how you like it. I am forgetful too – but it comes and goes. I think it is definitely related to stress – the more stressed I am, the more I become forgetful!
Haha! I hope so! I will definitely keep you up-to-date. xoxo
I haven’t meditated in years, but your post reminded me of a class I took where the teacher would have us all lay down and do a meditation to rest each muscle in our body, I forgot I really enjoyed that until just now!
I am super forgetful too, I just realized late last night that I let my drivers license expire a week ago, I’ve really got to get on that…
Oh no, Be careful not to get a ticket! xoxo
Hi! What a great post – so glad I stumbled upon your blog. I’ve been trying to meditate more, but always seem to be thinking about doing it instead of just doing it! I’d love an at-home candle-lit totally zen personal yoga studio to do it, but a girl can dream, right? I printed out this post and hope to try some of the techniques tonight 🙂
