Shelter In Place walk

One of the most important things while sheltering-in-place is making sure to get outside. Take the time to explore around you, walk for a couple miles, enlist the whole family. #shelterinplace #santacruz #joyofmovement

Natural Movement on HVMN
~ link ~

I listened to this episode on how natural movement trumps working out in the gym while running in the Santa Cruz mountains. I found myself taking more opportunities to run/jump through obstacles meant for mountain bikers, work my way around grazing cows, and across creeks. Give it a go! https://pca.st/huagxk2f

Who says you can’t have dessert when you are #keto? I celebrated my bike reunion with a @notpiecupcakes keto shortcake, cherries and sugarless raw whipped cream #lchf #crohnslife

The Power of Wakefulness
~ link ~

Going on 4 years of daily #meditation, I got a reminder of how powerful this practice is. I woke up with a busy brain and decided to get up and sit, expecting to eventually fall back asleep. Instead, I meditated more soundly than I slept! Look at that steep drop to the right, I’m pretty sure I hit peak wakeful awareness.
