Starting the day connected

Updated: Sep 24, 2023

Hello. It has been a while since my last post. I'm happy to be back. I hope that all of you are doing well. I know these last few months have been intense. I have been doing a lot of reflecting lately. During this time, I have learned more about myself. I wanted to share a little bit about my journey of self-care and how yoga has helped me in more ways than one.

Before COVID-19, I struggled to motivate myself to attend yoga classes in the morning. I had to push myself because I knew how good I always felt afterward. The reality was that I didn't have a morning routine, and I wasn't consistent with my sleep schedule. During the quarantine period, I found myself easing into yoga more every day through online YouTube videos. Coffee, of course, had to come first. It got to the point where I was doing it twice a day, and I could feel the difference while working from home. I started to set daily intentions, which helped me start the day more connected to myself and my purpose.

If you allow yourself to be fully present, you can create more space for listening and understanding, which is vital during these times. These last few months have taught me that there is so much more to yoga that can be applied off the mat. It has allowed me to step into a new space of self-awareness. For example, whenever I feel any anxiety, I remind myself to go back to only being in the now and not focusing on the next thing I must do. Getting lost in the moment is so easy, but stress doesn't make anything easier. I know some days are more complex than others, but just taking time every day to check in with yourself can set the stage for the day. This might mean something different for you. It might be waking up at 5 a.m., hitting the gym, or going for an early morning jog.

Before my renewed love for yoga, I had difficulty sticking to a regular routine. My sleep schedule would always be off, so I had to train myself to be consistent in self-care. It has made a massive difference in my personal and work life. I'm not here to tell you that you must add yoga to your routine. I'm simply sharing my experience with the hope it inspires you to discover your rhythm.

I empower you to step deeper into yourself and add a morning routine if you don't already have one. I would love to know what you do. Do you set an intention? Do you meditate? What's your favorite workout to start the day? Drop a comment below!
