I’m sure I wasn’t the only person in line thinking, “By all means, head for that state line… and now.” But you can’t completely blame the guy. Sometimes life triggers what can feels like an endless case of road rage. Even us yogis and meditators aren’t immune from it. Every little thin...

Mondays. Ugh. The very word sparks feelings of sadness, boredom and overwhelm. Mondays just seem downright dreadful. Which is understandable. For so many of us Mondays signal the start of the workweek, and the end of the weekend, which was likely relaxing and free from obligations and responsibilities (unless you have kids…just kidding…sort of).
