Your daily practices are your medicine

What are your daily habits? Do you think of them in a way to be your medicine or potentially your poison? When we look at our daily habits from a birds eye view we get a good idea of what our true priorities are and where we can improve.

I recently started a 40 day yoga nidra practice and 40 day mantra practice. Along with those practices I'm still working on my daily asana, meditation & pranayama practices. I have room to improve my evening practices in a way that nourishes me vs watching tv. I'm not perfect over here, but I do believe I can do better.

 

When you look at your daily routines

  • What does your morning look like?
  • Do you have room to pause during your day?
  • What do your meal times look like? How are you nourishing your body?
  • Do you plan or need to start planning to better attune your habits to who you want to become?
  • How are you moving your body?
  • Do you want to spend more time in nature?
  • How much time do you want to spend with your kids if applicable or spouse if applicable?
  • How do you want to end your day?

When will you carve out the time to start living the way you want to?

In all seriousness that question is one to ponder. We are busy, we are always busy. If you have a new way you want to show up in this world, when will you make the time to do that? Often we make time to go to the dentist, the eye doctor, or getting our haircut but how often are we making an appointment with ourselves?

 

That's not to make you feel guilty but that was a question I had to ponder. I wanted to incorporate all of these yogic principles into my lifestyle. I had to plan better. I had to carve out space to research what was best for me. To ask my teacher for a mantra she thought best for me, to see how long these routines would take and what time I would need to wake up.

If you have a new way you want to show up but don't know how to get started, ask for help. That's why I signed up for my 500 hour yoga teacher training. It was for my own growth and to get me back on track with lifestyle habits I deem important in my life. That doesn't always mean you need to purchase something if that's not in your budget, but sometimes we have wiggle room if we get honest with ourselves.
