It is that time of the year again.
We all start planning to chance the things that we didn’t like about ourselves or our situations during the past twelve months. Yoga teachers are no different.
I would like to make some changes for the upcoming year as well, but I don’t want to start the year with some trendy gratitude challenge (I am truly grateful everyday)or some grandiose “kick start” fitness challenge (kick start sounds painful to me).
I want to mark this new year in a nourishing way for myself, so I sat down and wrote out some of the things that I would like to change or add to my life in the upcoming 365 days. If you would like to join me, please feel welcome to share the simple things that you would like to change or add to your life. You can follow my posts on my Facebook page and the studio’s Instagram account.
Here’s to a great 2017
• Keep things in perspective.
• Remember that nothing lasts forever. No matter how terrible it feels now, it won’t always feel that way.
• Breath. Seriously. Mindfulness practices can help keep you in the moment.
• Don’t be afraid to take a break if you need to. Sometimes you need time to evaluate things properly. Treat yourself at least once a week #treatyourself
• Do something nice for other people. It’s been proven in many studies that helping others can make us feel better about ourselves.
• Talk. To anyone that will listen. About anything. Isolation makes problems seem a lot bigger than they are.
• Practice makes perfect. Stay on you mat, at least three times per week. #getyourasstoclass
• Take a photo every day for a year #365daysofpictures
• Ask for help, and take it
• Explore somewhere new at least once a month, no matter how close to home it is.
