“A grateful heart is a magnet for miracles”
The holidays are great and I love spending time with my family, this year we camped for a few days at Exmoor National Park (well glamped), I love the great outdoors and stepping outside my tent in the mornings, such a lovely sense of freedom.
With all the things you need to pack, the one thing I made sure not to forget was my yoga mat, what better way to start your day than a yoga practice outside your tent, on the lake, or on the cliffs with the wind and sunshine…… plus a little rain this week. It just sets me up and makes me feel good and strong.
Holidays mean relaxing, eating out and probably enjoying a few glasses of wine, so my morning practice is even more important so that I continue to feel good, believe in myself and my self worth.
“I look my best, when totally free, on holiday, walking on the beach” – Rosamund Pike
We have all at some point in our lives felt down, demoralised, bored, stuck or just downright totally fed up with a situation….. but how you deal with these times is more important than the fact you have these situations.
Life keeps moving forward whether you are down or happy, bored or fulfilled so it is important that we feel at ease with ourselves, open to ourselves and listen to our gut instincts….. they are often right.
By meditating and deep breathing we can focus and when we focus we can dream of success, positivity plus motivate ourselves. By listening to ourselves we can learn vital information about ourselves and value ourselves.
So next time you are down and not in a yoga class, maybe you’re at work or in the kitchen de-stress by doing some yoga neck stretches and shoulder stretches, these can be done sitting down. Concentrate on your breathing and focus on all the good things in your life.
“Happiness is not something readymade. It comes from your own actions” – Dalai Lama
