“I am doing the best that I can and that is enough.”
Post holidays bring this feeling of broken habits, we may have slowed or stopped practicing on our mats, gained a few pounds, or overall got out of the routine of life. We may be experiencing some judgement toward ourselves and where our bodies may be in this present moment, where our mental or our emotional state stands with seasonal depression getting stronger this time of year.
This week, instead of focusing on where we want to be tomorrow, do a full body scan and identify the things we enjoy about ourselves today. Enjoy this present moment and recognize we are doing the best that we can in this moment and tomorrow will come when it comes.
Live in the moment, change how you view yourself and how your brain processes your worth by repeating this affirmation when you are being your own worst critic, on and off your mat. See how you may change your views by the end of the week.
-Namaste, Michi P.
