The Journey of 40 Days Starts Today
I draw an Angel Card everyday before leaving the house. Today, I chose my very favorite word: Light. Yes, Perfect.
“Let everything happen to you
Beauty and terror
Just keep going
No feeling is final”
― Rainer Maria Rilke
It's on! I love the 40-Day challenge for its conscious focus in an finite amount of time. Why 40 days? Research suggests it takes 40 days to make a new habit or break an old one. Each time I've participated a "challenge" there have been insights. Mostly in what discipline can teach me.
This time around, my theme is "Shake it Up" Here are my goals:
* Dedicated home practice --15+ minutes every morning. I can be such a slacker.
* Yoga everyday--different yoga studio types including Bikram not just Yoga Yoga. I want to insert myself in different studios, teachers and experiences.
* No alcohol/bleached flour/fried foods--conscious consumption.
(For the record, I like my booze. I'll miss you mimosas, martinis & margaritas)
* Contributing to the YogaYoga blog 2x/week
* Oh, and drop 5 lbs.
Join me for what unfolds as I fold deeper into myself.
