The New Year has started and the first week of the year is a good time to check in with your intentions for 2012. It is a way to come back to your goals before they get away from you!
Part of my intention for the New Year is to stay focused and be more mono-tasked rather than always multi-tasking. As I write this newsletter I notice the distractions popping up – texting with my sister, posting to facebook – but like in meditation I come back to my breath and stay on task. Rather than ridiculing myself for attempting to multi-task I kindly coax my attention back to the newsletter.
What intention for the year did you set? How have you been living with that intention so far? What can you do to support yourself?
Taking time for yourself is a great way to stay on track with your intentions. Planning ahead can keep the dark days at bay and fend off the urge to give up or succumb to the winter blues. Personally, I know that February and March are months that test my light mood with the dark and cold days of winter. This year I am fending off seasonal blues with the bright reminder that in less than two months we’re off to Bali for this years international yoga retreat!
What plans can you make to practice your intention and self-care? Maybe a massage, mani-pedi, yoga class, dance class, time alone at home?
May we all live light, because everything is already okay.
