Do you ever feel like you're being torn in two different directions? Most of us can relate to this feeling at some point. Do you hear a voice telling you to go a certain way, or choose a certain task? I feel like this often especially when it comes to self motivation. There are days when I feel like I can conquer the world...Super Mom!!! Then of course there are days when I feel like I have been conquered...by three little girls or by something in my day that just didn't go quite right.
Today, I am talking about exercise and motivation. Be it my occasional lack of motivation or feeling tired from just being a Mom; it is so easy to ignore the positive voice and say to yourself, "I'll do it tomorrow." I don't want to listen to my negative, low motivating voice any longer. We are not promised a tomorrow, so I am starting anew. I am going to try my best to choose the positive, motivating, hard working voice.
I started practicing yoga a month or so ago. I need it for many reasons: my low back issue, to balance myself and to be in tune with myself. I absolutely love it. I love how I feel when I am stretching....Yes yoga is hard work. I love how I feel when I am done. It's a sense of accomplishment when one day I can stretch just a tad bit further and work my body more. It is an hour or so of time when I am alone with my thoughts and tuning into what my body needs. Yes, there is a room full of other people doing the same exact thing, but if you've ever taken yoga you know what I mean....there is a sense that you are there alone with the instructor.
So, today I am thankful for finding yoga and for choosing to listen to my positive voice. It's soothing for my body, soul and mind. I can't do much better than that.
