I was just practising yoga when I got the idea, I could come up with a new post.
My yoga journey has already gone a lot of miles in my opinion but there were breaks. The last one took more than 2 months. And when my mind started falling apart again I told myself I should get more "me time" and the first I thought of was yoga. Then I realized, well I tell myself quite often that "I'm gonna have a minute for me", "I'll have a cup of hot tea and read to unwind little bit" and many more... Unfortunately, mostly it does not happen.
I don't think I'm any special kind of hard worker, I do work hard but I do procrastinate sometimes too. So, how is it that there's no time for "me time"?
Today morning I sat down and took my weekly schedule. It didn't seem full, just stuffed with a lot of studying. And so I told myself, I've got a lot of time to do things that make me relax. Well, I wrote my today's to-do list and then scheduled it into the weekly planner. Great there is still room for things I wanna do. But while I was writing down the to-do's I was like, I should do the ironing, and hey that's something I enjoy doing so let's count it as a relaxing activity. When in fact, it's not something that relaxes my mind, it's just a thing I enjoy doing.
The only two activities which are on my plan and which will help me calm down are yoga (in the morning) and meditation (in the evening).
Okay, I think it's a good start. :)
