When we liberate our bodies, mind and heart follow. This basic principle of embodiment informs all physical hatha yoga practice. Just 4 Sun Salutations in the morning or at lunch, or any time you’re stuck, can revolutionize your point of view because mobilizing the spine and joints creates physical ease. It’s a good thing that it’s so easy, too, because physical ease isn’t a luxury; it’s a prerequisite for open, generative flow of creativity and relationships. It’s easier to be patient in line or on the freeway when your neck isn’t screaming. And that’s just the beginning.
You’re focusing on how much weight you lose- This is one of the biggest mistakes I see people make on a daily basis. Let me ask you this…If you had the body like you see on an anatomy chart would you care how much you weigh?
Your home workout routine never changes- After a few of the same workouts your body gets used to the same routine and adapts by expending less energy which makes it harder to change your body.
The good thing is that is only takes 20 minutes a day to be effective and there are several exercises that one can do in order to meet this requirement.
Luxury Purchases. People also buy things that are not necessary especially during the yuletide season. Things that will not add to them, that will even create hole in their pocket. Must you buy another phone? Do you really need blackberry and pay $5,000 service charge monthly apart from “credit”? What if you save that $5000 thereby saving $60,000 in a year? Must you subscribe to all pay TV in town? Must you buy the most expensive cloth and shoes? Think twice, Christmas is not forever.
Buy happy new year Now and Pay Later. They may also tell you to buy now and pay later. They are not helping you, what they are simply saying is “eat your future before you get there”. Buy only what you can afford to pay for now and preserve your future.
As pleased as I was with my new manicure routine, spending $75 a month soon began to add up. My habit was going to cost me $900 a year. I decided to go the do-it-yourself route instead. I knew exactly what was needed and shopped on Amazon for all the tools I needed. I chose to use Gelish gel nail polish and also bought Nail Harmony’s LED lamp. While the lamp cost me $300 and everything else – i.e polishes, orange sticks etc cost an extra $200, I was still pleased with the savings I’d made. The lamp is a one off cost and will last me forever as the LED bulb will never require changing. I’ve been doing my own gel polish manicures for six months now and that’s worked out to $450 in savings. One more month of DIY manicures and I’ll have saved the cost of my original outlay on equipment.
Don’t give up, even if you find you have to modify your new limits. Keep in mind that it takes about 21 days to create a habit. When you have met your goal remember to celebrate your accomplishment together. Most of all enjoy the opportunity to experience your child’s imagination through play.
