I want to fill you gals in on what this mompreneur has been up to…well firstly, I recently took up yoga after 5 years and y’all it was the best decision I have ever made. Yoga has been so good to me in the sense that my 1 year old daughter whats to do it with me. I know babies love to sit on their heads,but she actually tries to mimic the poses and it just warms my heart. Being new to the Miami area has been somewhat strange because I am away from everything and everyone I know, but I have met some awesome people in my yoga class. My classes usually ranges from the first timers all the way to the pros. Some the new yogi feel intimidated at first but realize that everyone has their clumsy moments and the lesson to learn is not to give up and to let go of the negative thoughts.
Secondly, I felt more zen with myself, I wasn’t going to let anyone’s opinion bother me and guess what it doesn’t. You have to have that I don’t give a damn attitude and keep pushing. In yoga with start with meditation and when you are hit with something stressful just remain calm and breath through your nose and out your mouth. Believe me when I say this, everything will be okay! Think of it this way, if you get upset and you begin to say the unthinkable you can’t get those words back. Words hurt like a double edge sword!
Lastly, put yourself first, there is nothing wrong with taking time for yourself. I say this because Yoga is my me time and it helps me to relieve the stress that I may have confronted all day. Once I’m on that mat nothing else matters, the crying baby, cleaning the house, tending to my husband, and nothing. It’s just me and the Yoga mat and have serene moment with myself and my spirit. So, find something that is going to suit you and Let go of all of the unnecessary distractions that can wait at least an hour or so. It’s all up to you!
