Today is day 14 of my 31-day yoga journey and I want to share some thoughts on how it is going.
So how is it going? Well, I have my ups and downs, that’s for sure. Some days I love it, others I just want to get it over with. Some days I smile or laugh and other days, like yesterday, I cry. Some days I feel like a true yogini, while on other days I feel like an elephant trying to climb a tree. Emotional roller coaster for you right there! But I show up for myself every single day. No matter how I feel. And one thing is for sure, I always feel better afterwards.
When I first started, I honestly was unsure if I would even make the first week without at least missing a day or two, doing several practices in one day, to kind of catch up. But surprisingly I stuck to it overcoming the challenge to set aside time. Having my group of ladies on Facebook has really motivated me so much.
And a perk is that my not-so-strong and very stiff body has become a lot stronger. My core muscles are where I feel the most effect, having been activated every single day now. A little a day goes a long way, as Adriene from YogaRevolution says.
I am excited to see how I feel at the end of this journey. I can´t really see any difference on my body, but I can feel it, both physically and mentally. Not much, but a little. It is of course not always just bliss and heaven, but I try to stay positive and honestly, it is fun! Fun to try, and when I fall I smile and get up and try again.
