Sticking to yoga and being a yoga teacher it is not always rosy!
Sometimes we hit roadblocks, setbacks, and more.
I have been practicing yoga for almost 4 years now. In the beginning, I was full of awe. There was so much to learn and so much to accomplish. I was a novice and it was exciting!!
After becoming a yoga teacher, I felt at ease. I was able to get a deeper understanding of my practice and what it really meant to me. I learned so much about myself, and still do to this day.
However, for some reason a few years into my practice I have been in a slump. I have been filling a void. I do not know why or how, but it started about 6 months ago.
It started out with me putting off my morning practice, then my evening practice. Going from exercising 6 days a week to barely one.
To keep myself accountable I would practice in a few yoga challenges a month. But over time I stopped completing them because I focused on other matters. Procrastination became my new habit.
Ever since I shifted my focused on other priorities instead of what I was passionate about was when my energy levels started to sink. My exercise routines suffered, yoga practice suffered, and my household chores suffered.
It was as if I was spiraling back into my depression. It has been about 6 years since I was in that state of mind. It was slowly trying to creep up again. But I was not trying to let that happen.
This time, I am learning to use the power of acceptance to help me move past and get back to feeling good again.
No more suppressing my emotions. No more Procrastination.
So, I decided to create a SMART plan. This will allow me to stay accountable and measure my success each month.
I have a plan for all of my yoga routines, workout routines, menu and business plan and more.
They are divided into daily, weekly, and monthly activities and goals.
