First off, good job on getting through another week. It can be easy to lose sight of the importance of recognising our successes, great or small.
Today I’ll be talking about a Yoga challenge I’ve embarked on, and why I recommend you try it out. So, as I stated in my previous post, I’ve been doing some daily yoga, mostly before bed as I’ve got school on earlier and I like to chill for a bit before getting serious haha. I tend to procrastinate a hell of a lot if I’m not doing something structured so I started with YouTube and was able to find some great videos by channel Yoga With Adriene. Most videos go for about a half hour, which I find I can work into my routine pretty seamlessly, but some of us are time poor, that I realise! Even if you split the workout to stretch over the day, or only do half even. As long as you find something that works for you, you should be just fine.
I am enjoying the challenge so far, and plan to continue on for the next twenty-seven days as I’ll be onto day five as of tomorrow. The videos are easy to follow and offer variety from day to day. This is important not only because too much repetition can become monotonous, but also due to the full body workout you’ll be benefiting from. The presenter, Adriene, is engaging and teaches well. I’ve found that while I’ve only been doing this challenge for a short while, I am able to do Yoga with increased ease. I’ve definitely been feeling more flexible too, and can pretty much touch my toes, which is something I couldn’t do before. I am also feeling a great deal calmer and happier. I have a greater sense of awareness of my thoughts, actions, feelings and the world around me. I can think clearer and my creative juices are flowing.
What can I say, Yoga is great for just about everything!
