My 3rd day of the 30 day yoga camp I am doing is complete. Today was a bit different as I didn’t do my yoga before noon like the past two days. I got busy in the morning and early afternoon so it didn’t get done. I actually had thought about skipping it today and just doing day 3 tomorrow. But that isn’t how I want to start this whole journey. I didn’t start this to skip a day and not move. With some exercise programs they do say you should take a day of rest, but with yoga I don’t think a day of rest is needed.
Today’s mantra is Embrace! Embracing this journey and how my body is changing even after only 3 days is easy for me at this point. I love getting centered and feeling the shake of muscles as I learn a new pose. I feel energized after I am done and I despite feeling sore when I wake up in the morning from working muscles I forgot I had, it feels good to feel that soreness. Does that even make sense?
I embrace my journey to a more flexible and strong body.
I embrace the soreness of muscles learning to work again as they should.
I embrace the calm and quiet time I have when doing yoga.
I embrace myself for working hard each day and making positive changes to my body.
I embrace my commitment to becoming healthy and strong.
What do you embrace today?
