Know your worth, know what you stand for, know your limitations, know your goals, know what it is that wakes you up every morning, know what makes you feel the most alive. Know yourself.
For many of us, life is a day-to-day routines. We wake up to a soothing cup of coffee, rush to work or school, spend all day learning new things, or filing papers, perhaps even toiling away at some job that makes you nothing short of unhappy. It is important to stay grounded and in touch with your deepest self. Here are three ways yoga can help you to successfully become more in tune to you.
1) Your Mat
Your mat is your space, and your space alone. You are dedicating one hour of your time daily to practice yoga, while never leaving your mat. It is your safety, it is where your thoughts are being captured on, no one else can occupy this space except for you and you alone. Familiarize with it and make it an extension of yourself during practice.
2) The Poses
Throughout the sequence of your yoga practice, you get to explore the depth of yoga by practicing different kinds of poses and postures. These help to illustrate your character. You might find yourself better at holding one pose than another. Just like in life, we are more capable at some things than we are at others. Don’t sweat it. That is the beauty of what makes us unique from one another.
3) Your Voice.
While you practice yoga, you are constantly talking to yourself. Maybe not out loud, but there is a voice going off inside of your head, it might even be your subconscious. You might not even realize it at all. It is important that that voice is speaking words of alacrity and encouragement. The fonder it is, the more vigorous you will become. Push yourself, because you know you can.
Do you know yourself? Does your daily routine work for you? If you are constantly driven throughout your day and in good spirits, you are doing it right. Yoga will help you to know you in the ways not only listed above, but in many other emotional and physical manners. So, go on, take that first step and dive right in. The best time to find out who you are, is right now!
