My Enlightened Delights

Blog

To enjoy good health,
to bring true happiness to one’s family,
to bring peace to all,
one must first discipline and control one’s own mind.
If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment,
and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.
— Buddha

The Mindful Diet Days 22-24

 

Week 4: Learn to Manage Obstacles

There’s always going to be something that threatens to throw you off your healthy-eating game. But how you react to—and plan for—those obstacles will be what helps you stay the course.

Days 22-24: Commit (again) to daily yoga.

If you’ve found yourself too busy to practice asana or meditation each day, try experimenting with the time of day you practice. Then, keep tabs on what felt best and most doable—because that’s what will be sustainable.

 


I've said it before and I'll say it again: no one is perfect! Furthermore, no matter how much we plan, we cannot predict the future; so it's important to be prepared for anything and still flexible enough to adapt to any changes as they occur. The article says, "There's always going to be something that threatens to throw you off your healthy-eating game. But how you react to--and plan for--those obstacles will be what helps you stay the course."

With that said, DO NOT feel discouraged if you forgot about your daily yoga practice from Day 2. This is your opportunity to focus on properly adding a daily yoga practice to your routine. Personally, I prefer to practice Yoga in the morning to help loosen up my muscles, jump start my metabolism, and provide an opportunity to meditate before jumping into my tasks for the day. Experiment with practice at different times of the day and do what works best for you!
