Blog-o-sphere Think Tank - Favorite Past Time Activity

For this month's installment... the topic is a favorite past time activity.


I'm not really sure I have any "past time activities"... it makes me think of things I used to do as a child for fun and maybe still do?

And pretty much the first thing that came to mind was holding my breath. Most kids do that don't they? Like in a swimming pool or bathtub - see how long they can hold their breath. And I still do. sometimes yes, in the bathtub. I'm sure if I had a pool I would test it out in the pool as well. But now, because of my yoga practice, I can hold my breath in a much more controlled and healthy manner. And still love it.

So I'm not really sure if that was a good answer for the topic, but it was the first thing that came to mind, so I figured it would be an entertaining post :)

Make sure to check out everyone else's favorite past time activities!

I never thought about it, but you are right. I test holding my breath when I swim....I've been told I have good lungs.

I like how this took you back to your favorite childhood activities too and how you incorporate it in your yoga practice!

'Holding your breath' made me giggle when I first read it and then I like the way you're able to connect that childhood habit with your yoga practice now.

I used to do "yoga" poses when I was a child too - but didn't know that was what I was doing! poses I remember doing then are poses I absolutely love doing now. kind of interesting!

I also realized I could have written "eating ice cream" as my favorite past time - thinking about it as I was eating some delicious coconut ice cream (you know, the vegan kind). yum.
