Finding the time

Headstand TowardYoga Iyengar Yoga SirsasanaMan, it’s hard to find the time isn’t it?

Another weekend whizzes past, and with it my visions of a beauuuuutiful yoga practise in my sunny yoga room.

It dawned on me today, as I whizzed out of Tesco, that if I don’t schedule something it rarely happens. I write kids play-dates on the calendar, birthday parties, opticians, buy new school shoes, blah, blah, blah, but if I don’t set aside time to do something just for me, then I feel like a hamster, I miss out on something that fills me with delight and makes my body feel fantastic!

Our lives are made up of days. Our days are full of things we need to do, and a few things we choose to do. If we aren’t careful, our days/lives are swallowed up by things that don’t enhance our life.

The tricky bit is working out what you can let slide. It’s worth spending some time working out how you can carve some me-time out of your day/week…then schedule it! Treat it like an appointment. Whether it’s a yoga class, or time for you to practise at home doesn’t matter – just make the time and do something that makes you happy and feel brilliant.

The feelings of calm, peace and strength stay with me long after I have rolled up my yoga mat. So I am timetabling some yoga just for me…and it’s going on the calendar!
