Find the True Yogi In You

We’re all searching for true happiness. Sometimes it’s so difficult to find it. We can’t see past the darkness, but the light will always shine through. Maybe not at the moment you want it to, but when the time is right it will.

I’ve had a four-day weekend (it’s been so bitter cold; -35 degrees with the windchill. Gotta love Chicago weather). Having this much time off is so bittersweet. It’s great to have a nice, long break but it can also get a bit boring and that’s when your mind starts to wander about anything and everything. It’s a terrible thing to be stuck in that state of mind. You never know where your mind is headed. Since my mind is prone to overthinking about every little thing, I decided that I was going to put a stop to the negativity and find the positivity. I’ll admit, it’s been a while since I’ve practiced yoga and also meditation. It’s gotten so far away from me and I’ve just pushed it off. I know it’s benefited me in the past, so I decided to give it another shot. I found a sequence by Kathryn Budig, which I just love. She’s an international yoga instructor and author and she’s simply a prodigy. I highly recommend finding sequences that she’s designed.

I started practicing both my yoga sequence and my meditation both first thing in the morning and in the evening. Practicing twice at these certain times guarantees to put a smile on your face and to rejuvenate you in the morning and to calm you down and relax you in the evening. For the past three days I’ve committed to this schedule and I’ve felt better than I have in a long time. More positive about my current situation — not worrying so much about what can happen, go wrong, or feeling stuck. I feel more elated and relaxed. If this outcome has affected me in only three days, I can only imagine how changed my life will be if I stick to it.

I write this post in hopes that you will try this technique. We’re all searching to be inspired and to elevate our mood. I believe the practice of yoga and meditation will help you achieve greatness in every possible way. Start out small with a short 10 minute yoga sequence and a 10 minute meditation practice and work your way up when you’re feeling ready for the challenge. You’ll feel moved and eager to begin each day.

Good luck, my fellow yogi’s! Namaste.
