I have compiled a list of tips and quotes that help me whenever I am feeling unmotivated!
- Keep a Journal/Calendar – I love this idea because I love to write down everything! In the article Coraley states that this gives the home-practicer some “accountability” and it helps to “form a habit”
- Release Expectations, ALL of Them – Yoga is not about perfection, it is about PROGRESS and GROWTH!
- Treat Yourself with Compassion – This is my favorite! She says, “instead of beating yourself up for not doing a practice the day before, forgive yourself, let it go, and roll out your yoga mat” which is great for me, because I tend to practice irregularly. And at times if I miss a few days I get so mad or I feel like a failure.
I am only going to list my two favorites, but if you want to see all 10, just click the link above!
