I have found when I am listening to my body and honouring whatever it wants, I can easily fall into the trap of ‘oh it just needs more rest’ or ‘just one more day off’, and the more it goes on the harder it is to get back into it ... I’m pretty sure it’s not just me that can feel like this!
Creating a habit is hard, there is no doubt about it, but keeping it when you are also trying to honour your body can be quite difficult too.
So, I have this little rule for myself, where I don’t have more than 1 day off in a row (I normally only have 1 day off a week)… BUT it’s not as harsh or strict as that first sounds.
I don’t have any rules with what I actually do on my mat. If my body is truly tired then I will do yin or even just 5 minutes of stretching, the discipline comes with getting on the actual mat everyday regardless.
9/10 when I get on my mat, I do actually have the energy to do a nice long yoga session or workout!
I have had my little way for about a year and I have found it works really well with both keeping up the habit and discipline, but also really honouring whatever it is my body needs.
Have you ever thought about this? And what do you have in place to balance out discipline with listening to your body?
