Krissy: When I’m struggling to get grounded, I sit still and imagine an anchor being dropped from my pelvis down to the center of the earth. And if that doesn’t work, I’m a huge fan of taking long salt baths.
Chloe: Getting back into my body is what has helped me stay sane through all of last year and the start of 2021. There are days when I’d rather lay in bed and doom scroll and cry, but then I get myself on a yoga mat to just move and breathe, and I always feel more like myself. Even something as simple as a short moment of shaking, jumping, or dancing around to a song that brings me joy can put me in a better headspace. Forward folds, rounded plough, hip openers, and gentle pranayama (breathwork) are immensely helpful for me.
Building a healthier WFH routine
Krissy: I am dedicated to my morning yoga and meditation routine. I love starting my day with coffee and Sky Ting TV, our video channel. I often do just 20 minutes—nothing crazy. I’m also a fan of getting outside once in the morning, afternoon, and evening. Taking a five-minute walk helps my eyes recharge during long Zoom days.
Chloe: I have a few tricks to help me stay present and healthy while working from home. I drink a lot of water, and I love doing our short Sky Ting classes, which consist of quick 10-15 minute flows, to unstick my body and give me a little respite from typing on a computer. I also highly recommend getting outside at least once. Stick to simple things that are accomplishable in your daily routine to create longstanding healthy habits!
