When there’s a million things going on in the day, and in your head, it can be easy to cross off yoga off list.
Most people think about how much work they could complete during that time, and then say, “Eh, I’ll just do it tomorrow.”
Don’t do that!
You know why? Because this is what will happen….
You’ll do it the next day Then, the next day. And, the next day. Then, by the end of the week you feel tight and stiff in your body. You’re still overwhelmed. You feel burnt out. Your mind is cluttered. And, you’re no better off then when you started.
Here’s why this happens. Your mind needs time to rest and restore. You won’t be able to think clearly if you don’t allow your mind the whitespace. Just like the pure blue sky can be hidden with hail, rain, and clouds – your mind is cluttered with ideas, meetings, projects, and to do lists.
You need this quiet time to clear the clutter so that you can sort through the mess and get back to what really matters.
This practice is what gives you clarity so you can move forward. Doing this practice daily will actually make you work more productive and efficient.
In short – You’ll get more done.
You don’t have to do an extra long super intense practice. That’s not what practice is about. Actually, if you skip your practice because you don’t have time to fit it in, then that’s attachment. You need to become unattached and just hop on the mat even if it’s just a few Sun Salutations.
That’s what this episode is about.
In my latest podcast, I talk you through a short 10 minute practice. You can actually do it in 5 minutes if you wanted.
You can listen to the audio here, and I guide you through it. Eventually, you’ll be able to memorize this and do it on your own.
So, if you’ve ever had the excuse of no time, too much to do, or that you have no idea how to do your own yoga practice without a teacher – well now you have no excuses.
