Happy Monday! To get your week of to a great start, I have a Christmas themed basic yoga flow. It’s suitable for all levels. Check out my crazy socks & look for the #catphotobomb in the video. While yoga is inspiring, after the video I’m sharing a story about fresh starts & new beginnings for some Monday motivation. 🙂
Christmas Themed Basic Yoga Flow
The two basic yoga flows shown in the video are variations of sun salutations which include some strength exercises for the upper body and the core. They are great for a warm up, cool down or just a quick stretch. I will build on these flow sequences in the weeks to come.
We have all have bad days. Last week seemed to be a bad week for me as far as technology goes. It was full of technical problems! I learned a lesson in patience & perseverance. What is worth doing isn’t always easy. I was also reminded how thankful I am for second chances & fresh starts. You know that feeling when you have tried everything to get something to work & you want to pull your hair out? Yah…me too. Last week even the most basic things were not functioning. I tried to save a file to my external hard drive, it ‘couldn’t be found’ according to my computer. Tried to upload a video, the video wouldn’t process. The list goes on. All these problems caused simple tasks to become really complicated and time consuming. Time was ticking & nothing was getting done. It was really discouraging.
While I am very thankful it is a new week, the great thing is you don’t have to wait a week or a month or a year for a ‘fresh start’. Every day is a new day & within the day, every hour is a new hour. Did you get up on the wrong side of the bed or have a bad case of the Monday’s? That doesn’t mean the whole day is a waste. Try to find the positive among the negative. As soon as a new hours strikes or a new minute begins, it’s an opportunity for the day to be different. Change your mindset. Even though things may not be perfect, or in my case, things still may not be getting done, changing your outlook on the situation is extremely powerful. Try it this week & see what a difference it makes.
