On Tribe: How do you keep balance with your tribe and everything else in life?Lindsay: Honestly, I don’t. Its a constant work in progress. I haven’t been the most present friend or family member over the last year as my life has gone through some big changes (becoming a mama namely). If I were perfect, I would schedule in time with my friends and family regularly and make a conscious effort to unplug from the other things during those times, but I’m not and I don’t. Goals!
I’ve learned that the quiet, soft quality of yin yoga is what my body and mind really need to balance out my otherwise very yang lifestyle.
On Movement: What are your yin and yang styles of movement
1. Yin yoga is actually my favorite, and my teaching specialty these days. I used to be so much more drawn to the fast paced, sweaty power classes but as I’ve aged and learned more about myself, I’ve learned that the quiet, soft quality of yin yoga is what my body and mind really need to balance out my otherwise very yang lifestyle.
2. Yang movement for me is anything intense, individual, and sweat-inducing. I love trail running for the ability to just meld with nature. I love boxing for the release of emotions and power. I love OrangeTheory for metrics and competition…plus I’m a data nerd so I love the post-workout email.
On Food: When you fall off track with your food choices, how do you get back on?
Lindsay: I fall back on my food journal. I find if I’m writing down everything I eat and drink in a day it very quickly motivates me to get back on track. The mindlessness of eating when I’m stressed and busy and tired needs the mindfulness of journaling to reset.
I do my best to stop scrolling and open a real, paper book after a certain time of night.
On Love:How do you balance self care into your schedule?
Lindsay: I rely on my boyfriend to care for our son so I can take a yoga or fitness class. I budget in the cost of things I enjoy doing as self care and self development (massage, energy work, coaching, etc) even though we could use the money for other purposes. I do my best to stop scrolling and open a real, paper book after a certain time of night. I don’t have a perfect balance between work and self care, but I think I do a much better job of it these days than at any other time in my life.
