Travel involves a lot of waiting. I thought, 'Wow, what a perfect time to do a pose or take a breath. Yoga is so portable.
We're in a mode where it feels like there's no free time, but there really is. To live a good life is not about going to a meditation retreat one weekend a year. It's about moment by moment, every day. You've got to train yourself, train yourself to be calm.
When everyone is really busy and feeling stressed out, often the time with your partner is one of the first things to get bumped. Stretching with your loved one turns the tables on the rat race, allowing you both to be in the moment and renewing your connection.
If you're just remembering the big picture and you're calm and your body isn't aching, you're going to be much friendlier and looking around and enjoying yourself.
