Anonymous said: I saw your post about yoga and your test, and I was wondering what you do to ease stress and calm down? any videos or meditations? I just got my SAT results back and I'm feeling like a meltdown :(

I just like to sit there and close my eyes and clear my thoughts for like 5 minutes while doing ujjayi breathing (this type of breathing really helps me to get rid of all the built up anger and anxiety inside of me usually). If that doesn’t help I will get on my mat and practice (usually I just make up my own flow). 

SAT is mentally tough and I know how upsetting and nerve wracking it can be to get your scores and everything.  

However know that don’t let a bad SAT score affect you. You could retake the test again, or take the ACT (which most colleges accept and it’s a lot easier than the SAT). 

I live in MI so I actually was required to take the ACT in high school, but I remember prepping for the SAT and I absolutely hated it. 

Good luck on everything, if you need help or anything please feel free to message me. I’m sorry for rambling a bit!

Anonymous said: Do you know of any ways to really motivate yourself or keep yourself on track? I fall in and out of yoga, doing it every day for a while and then not doing it at all for a week,,, I know it's different for everyone, but do you have any tricks or ideas for how to keep oneself in the habit of yoga? <3

Hey, sometimes I have days when I fall out of my yoga practice and I don’t really let it upset me too much because I just look at it as a way of letting my body taking a break. 

However, you might just need like a youtube video or something to motivate you to practice more or something :) Look up a video everyday and just do it. Maybe do it twice a day. 

Or like set a reminder on your phone! That could help motivate you to get on your mat.
