This is one of my go-to strategies when I need to smile
I love keeping a gratitude journal. I have been keeping one for decades and credit it for helping me have a deep appreciation in my life regardless of the outer circumstances.
When I first learned about gratitude journals it was suggested to do them in the evening. However, I find first thing in the morning works better for me.
I would challenge anyone to try keeping one for 60 days and see what you discover.
Whether you come to my classes or not, I invite you to join in this 52 week challenge for body, mind and soul.
You can take the challenge for yourself, or you can like my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/LivingSkyYoga and each day you finish the challenge pop an emoji in the comments. Each time a person does the challenge their name is entered into a draw at the end of the month.
This week we start with a movement challenge. Some people dread exercise, but I firmly believe movement should be FUN
See if you can find some fun ways to move your body and start the year right.
Today I conducted a workshop for other yoga teachers. The workshop was on yoga and foot health. To finish the workshop I took participants through giving themselves a relaxing foot massage.
In the lead up to this workshop I had been practicing this foot massage. It is one I used to do on myself often. However, it has been a long time since I gave myself this gift of time.
Of course, in the workshop I encourage and challenge participants to revisit this foot massage again (and again) taking time for a little self care. Yet, obviously I am not always great at following my own advice. This is an area I can work on.
How are you at taking time for a little self-care?
Do you make self-care part of your daily/weekly/monthly routine?
Do you have any plans for self-care prior to or during the holiday rush that will soon be upon us?
Can you make a commitment to schedule some time for giving yourself a little self-care before ending this year?
Self-care doesn’t have to be a luxury. Sometimes it is the simplest things that are the most nourishing.
I invite you to take some time to reflect on what self-care might look like for you.
If you need a little nudge to get you started, I invite you to join me Friday, November 26 at 6pm (CST) on Zoom and I will guide you through a relaxing foot massage.
Summertime and the living is easy….
But we still need to get a little physical activity into our days 🙂
When June arrives we’ll shift to our summer schedule. Virtual classes continue. Every Monday, Wednesday & Friday you can join us live over on Facebook at 6am (Saskatchewan time) for a Yoga Flow class (approximately 25-30 minutes long) or you can watch the recording later on the website.
Also each week 3-4 classes will also be added to the website.
Classes may be
-15 Minute Yoga
-BarreAbove Pilates Focus
-30 Minute Dumbbells
Once a video is posted it will stay up all summer long for you to use as many times as you want.
Virtual classes continue to be by donation. Some folks want to do one class, some folks want to do them all. Some folks pay upfront, some folks want to pay as they go.
New platform for our June, July, August! One password all summer long. Message for more info and to get the link and password to get started.
