I have chosen regular yoga practice as a way to balance the fast pace and stimulation of my job. I make 30 minutes for yoga each morning at home and attend a weekly group class. The balance I gain from yoga often helps my mind and body remain calm when work is challenging. I also find that my sleep is more restful and restoring.
