How I Spent My #PowerHour with Sweaty Betty
Can you believe it's already September? This is my favorite month with October coming in at a close second. Perhaps, I'm biased about September, since it's also my birthday month (woohoo)! Cannot wait to celebrate with my favorite peeps.
Today marks the launch of Sweaty Betty's #PowerHour Campaign, featuring their bold, beautiful and versatile POWER Leggings. When the Sweaty Betty team asked me to share what I do in my #PowerHour, my initial thought was yoga. No surprise there, eh? But, when I started to dig a bit deeper, I realized it's more than just the act of doing yoga. It's so much more powerful than that - It's having the freedom to do yoga anywhere and everywhere. #StopDropAndYoga yeah!
What's a Power Hour?
By Definition via Sweaty Betty:
POWER HOUR[pou-er] [ou-er]
An hour of your time spent running, spinning, brunching, dancing, snapping, stretching and boxing in Sweaty Betty POWER leggings.
Sixty minutes to give it your all; taking you from barre to bar.
So, how did I spend my #PowerHour? I spent my #PowerHour laughing, hiking, stretching and exploring on all fours. Follow my adventures below:
Hike to the Heart
I feel the most powerful when I'm immersed in nature. It's when I feel the most connected to my spirituality. Whether I'm hiking solo or with a group of friends, I find it incredibly fulfilling to climb rock scrambles, jump over logs, run downhill, and even trip over the bumps. It gets my blood pumping, and it's invigorating. It's an action that puts me to work physically, mentally and spiritually.
Stop, Drop, and Contemplate
When I make it to the tops of each peak, I am consumed and mesmerized by the views. Nature's beauty knows no boundaries, and it's so liberating to peel back a few layers, detach from the digital age, and detox from the desire for instant gratification.
Never Stop Exploring
Nature is always evolving and adapting, and so should we. It's a constant reminder to stay hungry, and to keep your sense of childlike wonder. I love to explore the woods with the same sense of curiosity I had as a child exploring my backyard. Most importantly, find people who share the same passion for adventure and exploration. I couldn't ask for a better partner in crime.
My idea of a #PowerHour is constantly changing based on what my mind, body or spirit has to say. This past weekend, I was craving nature and good company, so I set out to spend my time outdoors with great people. Our journey lasted over a 5-mile hike and ended with a delicious all-American dinner. While this long passed an HOUR, the Power Leggings lived up to their reputation - yes, they are rad and ridiculously versatile. The swirling lava print even hid the dust & dirt I encountered on the trail. :)
Join the conversation! How would you spend your #PowerHour? Thank you to Sweaty Betty for this knockout look, and for inspiring me to dig deeper to activate and live out my own version of a #powerhour.
