This morning, I completed Day 12 of my 30-Day yoga challenge and I’m noticing so many great changes in my body as well as things that I still need to improve on. Yoga is a very mindful and self-aware practice and over the past week and a half I have become increasingly aware of my body and my mind when I dedicate time each day set out for doing yoga.
My biggest challenge so far has been discipling myself to stick with the challenge. I usually try to commit to doing my yoga in the mornings to start my day fresh but sometimes it’s not always possible or easy to get it done early in the day. Sometimes I have to do my yoga before bed which is difficult because I’m usually tired at the end of the day and would rather lay in bed and relax.
On the 5th day I had put off doing my yoga until it was too late and I was too tired to do so. I was disappointed in myself for getting lazy so early on in the challenge and not committing the 20-30 minutes it would take to complete Day 5’s exercises. To make up for it, I did both Day 5’s exercises and Day 6’s so as not to “cheat” on the challenge.
Ever since then, I’ve been doing my yoga every single day and I am slowly seeing progress in my flexibility and upper body strength. I can’t wait to see what else I discover in the remaining days of my 30-Day yoga challenge!
