I really liked today’s practice. There was a good mix of everything in there. And even though it was 40 minutes, it didn’t feel that long to me. And I think I know the reason why.
Today’s mantra was I am present. As you probably remember from my earlier yoga camp posts, I’ve been trying to be present. And you know what? I think it’s definitely been having a positive effect on me.
Firstly, I’ve been able to concentrate better on my present tasks and fall asleep easier at night because my mind isn’t consumed with thoughts about the future.
Secondly, my yoga practices have been feeling shorter even though they’re starting to get longer again! Why? Because I have been present throughout my practices instead of looking ahead and wondering when it’s gonna be over so I can carry on with my day.
I’m not going to talk too much more about being present because I think I’ve talked quite a bit about that in previous posts. So I’m just going to refer you to those posts instead.
Already read them? Great! Read ’em again! It’ll serve as a great reminder. 🙂
