NOTES FROM MY YOGA JOURNAL
Developing a practice for reflection is something I work on with each of my clients. Some people find they can unplug and think clearly about their day and the decisions they have made or need to make when they lift, go running, or do yoga. Others journal, meditate, or take a daily walk. Regardless of what they choose to do, they do it regularly. Regularity is what provides them an outlet for cultivating insights.
Many people struggle to maintain dedication to a practice. I do too. What is important is that we all continue to return to whatever anchors our ability to think with greater clarity. Tending to our state of mind leads directly to better decision making and kinder interactions (with ourselves and others).
As is typical with most learning, when I stopped my own regular practice of reflection I started to forget some of what I had learned. It’s not that I didn’t learn what I learned, but personal and professional mastery only come with effort. Here, I mine notes and insights from my yoga journal as inspiration for re-integrating some powerful lessons from my practice into my daily life.
I hope my (semi-regular) practice helps inspire some new thinking for you too.
