A Promise to Myself

Throughout the entire YTT course, we have learnt many different techniques and practices to improve our overall well-being, be it physical, mental, or emotional. 

I’m going to be realistic and start with baby steps.

Here’s my upcoming daily routine (starting tomorrow)!

 

Morning

  • Wake up and start my day with Pratirhara to be aware of my physical and mental state
  • Practice Kapalbhati Pranayama (if I’m not on my period) / Nadi Shodana (if I’m on my period)
  • Surya Namaskara A & B (2 rounds each)
  • Hold my Mula Bandha while waiting for the bus and inside the train

 

Lunch Time

  • Pratirhara
  • Simple stretching exercise open up my shoulders
  • Go for Sattvic food
  • Sheetali Pranayama (if the weather is hot) to cool down the body

 

Evening

  • Asana (the choice of asana will depend on my mood)
  • Shower with Salt Water

 

Before Going to Bed

  • Balasana & Paschimottanasana
  • Pratirhara
  • Think positive thoughts and practice gratitude

 

Weekly

  • Work on inversion poses, starting with perfecting my headstand
  • Designate 1 day to go on a vegetarian diet

 

In General

  • Let go of attachments towards the things I own and the people in my life
  • “You must have the heart (and guts) to give your most precious item/ person away.” — Quote from Master Paalu (4th November 2017)
  • Have positive intentions, speak positive words, carry positive actions

 

Namaste,

Ziyu
