What did you do with your locked-down morning today?
You know… that part that was your own, where you got to choose? Before the demands of others barged in.
Do you have a systematic plan? Or do you leave it to chance.
Do you choose to mindlessly flick through your phone, or do you choose to get up and mindfully move?
Maybe you think it’s hard to change your habits? You’ve tried before, it failed. It’s impossible! You tell yourself this often enough. Guess what! You’ll be right.
But just maybe you could think differently?
As a practice of union, Yoga has got me to slow down and step out of speed cycle that was at times addictive, restless and unhealthy. 🤒
Now I get that the more we take on, the more difficult it is to get off our speed mills. Life just gets fuller and fuller and you just have to keep running to keep up. 🏃🏻♀️ And the more we run, the more we lose our way.
We deplete our inner resources (our bodies) and our external resources (the planet).
Do you see it? Want a way out?
YOGA, as well as a really cool physical practice that gives us a great outer bod, also encourages us to take a look under the hood (so to speak) and tinker around for some deeper solutions to life’s daily challenges.
Today’s yoga solution is: Find Permission to Pause.
Let’s be real, only when you draw that line in the sand, pin your flag to the mast, dig in your size sixes and scream ‘enough now’. Then and only then, can things start to shift in your life, evolve – move along baby.
Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results, whatever you want that result to be is, as Einstein famously put, insane.
I’m not calling anyone crazy, here, but maybe, urmm aren’t we a little?
