This week: How to.

Here’s what my week looked like…
21 classes (including what you can see below plus one beginners course and 4 x 1-2-1 private sessions).
Oh and a charity event of 108 sun salutations!
Today I wanted to share with you what I found hard, what I found easy and how I did it…

The things I found challenging about this busy schedule:

  1. Getting enough sleep.
  2. The impact on my body physically (I feel new muscles forming from adjusting so much!).
  3. The impact on my laundry pile and general house hold chores.
  4. Fitting in my usual grocery shopping.
  5. Timing eating right to ensure I wasn’t teaching/sleeping/practicing on a full stomach but with enough fuel to keep me going.
  6. Finding time for me. Just Be-ing and not do-ing.
  7. Finding time for others (friends. family. Steve)

The things I found made this week feel easy even with this challenging schedule:

  1. When I put my head on the pillow – I slept – I mean really SLEPT!
  2. Knowing that I was learning so much every day – immersing myself in my dharma of teaching yoga and being around such inspiring individuals.
  3. My friends understanding and giving me a warming smile, a hug or some friendly encouragement.
  4. Relaxing a little on how much gets done and focusing on the quality of what does get done.
  5. My family – for understanding and helping out with simple things like a lift to the recycling bank!
  6. A great diet – keep it simple and light so I had excess energy to do what needed to be done. This is the opposite of what many people do – (i.e. there is a notion we must eat more to ‘get by’ which I find has the opposite effect on me!).
  7. Smiling. Laughing. Enjoying. Being grateful. Learning…
