Spring has sprung. Flowers are in bloom, the days are warmer, the sun is up longer and everything is green. If you're like most Americans, springtime entails some mixed emotions – on the one hand, you're delighted to see the seasons change, and, on the other, you have the overwhelming urge to get away from your cubicle and into the sun. Rather than playing hookey, though, consider doing Dahn Yoga for your health.
Online magazine Feelgood Style recently addressed the antsiness that comes with warmer weather. The news source called the feeling "spring fever" and explained that it's more than a feeling – it's a primal force.
Essentially, your body is attuned to nature. Though we're social, civilized creatures, we're also still animals. The restlessness you feel at your desk each day is your brain stem and your ki energy telling you to GET OUTSIDE!
Unfortunately, this isn't an urge you can indulge very often. Most people need to maintain a regular work schedule, or else risk losing their position. So instead of pulling up stakes and going on a yoga retreat in Arizona (you can save that for your vacation), take a few minutes at work to do Dahn Yoga. Even if you simply meditate at your desk, you'll be able to internalize and redirect all your extra energy into something constructive.
