The Secret to Finding Yoga Time
What’s the best yoga time of the day?
Like all hard-core yogis, I get up at 4:30 a.m. every day and hit the yoga mat for a couple hours … and you should too!
If you’re like most people, you work more than you want to. After picking the kids up from practice, grabbing a few groceries and making a stop at the dry-cleaners on the way home, and it’s already 7:30 in the evening.
You’ve still gotta cook dinner, deal with the car insurance, the laundry, and a whole list of other things that have been piling up.
The last thing you want to do when you finally collapse into your bed at midnight is set the alarm for 4:25 a.m. so you can get up and do yoga, right?
I hear you …
Getting up with the sun may be a blissful experience if you’ve renounced the world and are living carefree in a cave in the Himalayas, but for you and me, the folks with jobs and families, and mortgages to pay, and a zillion other things to take care of every day, it just ain’t always very practical.
So DON’T EVEN TRY IT!
Don’t get me wrong … I know for a FACT that yoga is the most potent and powerful way to RE-GAIN a SANE LIFE … To simplify the craziness, and to bring back some peace and harmony into the chaos that has become your life.
But you can’t go from 100 miles per hour to a full stop just like that! (not without crashing into a brick wall, which, well … would be messy!)
The same goes with yoga.
You have to get there STEP BY STEP …
Don’t try to get up two hours earlier tomorrow. Just get up 10 minutes earlier. Then …
- Find a quiet place, sit quietly, breathe calmly for a few minutes and allow your mind to move gently from the world of sleep into the land of the living.
- Stretch your legs out in front of you and perform a few light loosening up movements … like rolling your head from side to side, slowly bending and straightening your legs, rotating your ankles, and gently shaking your arms and hands.
That’s a whole lot better than jumping out of bed and right into your “list of things to do today” mode, isn’t it?
… After even just of few days of this, you’ll be surprised how much easier it becomes to get up even earlier and practice more yoga…
… And the better you’ll start to feel too!
And here’s a real shocker: When you START YOUR DAY feeling GOOD, then everything else just seems to run a little bit smoother for the rest of the day.
Integrating Yoga Time Into Your Busy Life is a STEP BY STEP Process.
Remember, with anything new, the hardest step is always the first one. Once you make it, moving forward is a piece of cake!
Start slow, but most importantly … START!
Before you know it, you’ll be finding the chaos starting to subside, and areas of your previously hectic life starting to give way, making room for more yoga time and other health-enhancing activities.
10 minutes! Now that’s not asking much, is it?
Give it a try … you won’t regret it!
