“People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.” – Zig Ziglar
Good morning , meditation done.
Quote for the Day:
“People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.”
This morning was another one of those days when I looked at the time and felt like I wanted to turn over and go back to sleep. It’s been a long, hard productive week and I am absolutely knackered. It’s Saturday and it would be easy to say to myself let ‘s just have a lie in. But if I want to reach my goals I have to be motivated on a daily basis, not just occasionally.
There are certain things you have to do everyday like bathing and brushing your teeth.
For me yoga like walking my dogs Zeus and Zorro, is something I have to do everyday, sometimes I do not feel like doing it, but every time I do it I feel amazing when I have finished.
When it’s cold, dark and rainy outside the last thing I want to do, is get up out of my cosy bed and do it, but I make myself do it everyday and never ever regret it.
Not doing yoga or taking Zeus and Zorro for a walk is not an option, Zeus and Zorro will be hyperactive and bored all day, which will lead to discipline and behavioural problems, which will not be good for any of us.
It is similar thing with my body and mind if I do not practice yoga on my mat that day, my mind and body will be distracted and I will not have a fully fulfilled day. So I get up meditate, practice yoga and take Zeus and Zorro for a walk everyday, which along with a healthy diet prepares my mind and body fully, to be happy and healthy to fulfil the daily activities I need to do to achieve my goals and live the life I dream of.
The daily practice of yoga for the last 10 years has really helped me in all aspects of my life.
I realised that the more I exercised and practiced the stronger my breathing would become and the more control of it I would have.
The yoga poses and breathing taught me that if I controlled my breath I could control my mind. I discovered that the pain and discomfort I would feel in the awkward yoga poses, would go away if I breathed and stayed calm. This mirrored situations in life which can seem impossible with no way out, but if you stay calm, focused and breathe then your head clears, the situation does not seem as bad as you first thought and you can see a way forward.
It has taught me to focus my mind and not be distracted by outdoor forces and things that I cannot control.
I have also learnt that I cannot do all the poses or asana, but this is not failure, the point of yoga is not to be able to do all the poses, it is the daily process of trying to achieve them that is important. Because as soon as you have mastered a difficult pose, you will come across another one that you will feel is impossible, when you first start, but if you practice every day it will become a little bit easier as you improve every day.
This is the basis of my Elysium Way Training System.
The Elysium Way enhances and enriches lives allowing you to reach your full potential physically, mentally and spiritually.
And one of the main components of the Elysium Way is practicing yoga.
If you would like to improve your breathing and clear your mind by introducing yoga into your life or to strengthen your daily practice to help you focus, smile more and achieve your goals and live the life of your dreams?
