31 Days of Wellbeing: Day 2

Day 2 of 31 Days of Wellbeing is here…let’s continue to focus on feeling good about ourselves for at least one moment today.

I feel this is an appropriate time to suggest this activity because in the UK we are facing SNOWMAGGEDON! Therefore any of our UK readers may not be feeling like getting out and about. Even if it’s nice weather outside, sometimes you don’t feel like facing the world, but it is important that you do something just to get you off the couch. Otherwise, your physical and mental wellbeing will suffer.

“The very heart of yoga practice is ‘abyhasa_ – steady effort in the direction you want to go.”

Yes…yoga…I know it’s such a cliché to mention yoga when talking about wellbeing. But it works! I decided to do yoga every day in January to see if it made a difference. I had been to yoga classes before but never more than once per week, and the focus was always to make it a workout, rather than an activity to nurture the mind and body.

I followed the True series by Adriene on YouTube (all you need is a laptop, cable, TV and a yoga mat!) which that focused on getting to know your true self and finding what feels good for you. Knowing that every day I would carve out that time for myself made a massive difference – I noticed the way I handled stress and anxiety changed for the better.

All I ask is that you give it a go…and ideally give it a fews gos 🙂

Definitely check out Yoga with Adriene – she has lots of sessions specially for when you feel stressed, anxious, depressed, in a bad mood etc!
