swm: yoga mat.
Maybe I spoke up my own downfall with blogging a couple of weeks ago when I wrote that eventually, I’d miss a day or two. Well, now it’s been three days missed, almost four because I was journaling just now, and realized I hadn’t even gotten around to blogging.
Truthfully, today’s focus has been gaining better routines for myself, both in the morning and in the evening/night. I’ve been feeling like time slips away during both times of day, so I’m trying to do my best to be more mindful of how much time I spend doing certain tasks, like folding laundry and dishes, or even putting in time for me to play with Patches, or take him on a walk.
But I’m glad I was still able to make time to do this: to blog about my thoughts, and about the latest things I’ve been focusing on and creating.

Onto the topic at hand, though! Today, I want to talk about my latest Amazon Gym Find: a yoga mat. Now, there are many yoga mats in the world, but not all of them are alike. The one I had before was EXTREMELY thin; it was my first yoga mat that I purchased during my first year of really wanting to take my health seriously, and doing online Pilates.
This past Christmas, my mom got me a thicker, blue yoga mat from Amazon that I absolutely love! It’s 1/2 inch thick so it’s perfect for knee-friendly workouts and all the yoga poses! Usually, my knees or back are always hurting if I’m using a typical yoga mat, but this one is surely the best one I’ve ever used, even in comparison to gym mats!
It also comes with an extra piece if you need extra cushion for you knees or your back or neck! It rolls up easily, and comes with a velcro carrier so you can bring it with you to the gym, your yoga class, or wherever!
With COVID ramping back up again, as much as I’d love to go to the gym I pay for, it seems safer to workout from home, and this yoga mat has helped me focus less on unnecessary pain, and more on my actual workout!

I’m excited to get back into blogging this week, and as we move into the next month of 2022. I can’t believe January is almost over 😱 I’m eager to make the rest of this month count!
