Balance Challenge Guidelines

The guidelines that I will be following over the next 12 weeks are as follows.

Starting the first week with:

Body

1.     Eating

– Mindful eating – in both what I eat and how quickly I eat it

2.     Sleeping

– Getting at least 7-8 hours of sleep each night

3.     Yoga Asana

– Practicing at least 1 hour each day

– 5 poses will be chosen to focus around for each week

Slowly incorporating the Mind into the challenge:

Mind

1.     Writing

– Daily journaling – at least 2 sentences

2.     Technology Breaks

– 1 hour each day where I do not check my emails

– No computer (or iPhone!) after 10 pm

I expect to start integrating the spirit cleanse component in the fourth or fifth week, but don’t want it to feel so structured, so I’ll just keep a close eye on my progress and see when it feels natural to begin incorporating these components.

Spirit

1.     Meditation

– Vipassana (Mindfulness) Meditation

– Mantra Meditation

(I will try both of these during different weeks and research other types of meditation to see which resonates with me the most to keep a consistent daily practice for at least 20 minutes daily)

2.     Feng Shui

– Create a clutter free environment in my bedroom

– Harmonize the flow of energy in my home to create balance and harmony

Look for posts on my blog, Facebook & Twitter to track my progress!
