Listen I hate working out. I have health issues that make traditional gym type exercise really hard. I have used that as an excuse to not work out at all. Now I am bigger and not near as healthy as I would like.
My therapist recommended Adriene Yoga 30 day journey. Not only to help my physical but, also my mental health.
Let me tell you it has been awesome. Now at first I hated it. It was a lot harder than I thought and I couldn’t hardy do it. All it did was show me how weak and unbalanced I was. I couldn’t even get through a full session.
For once I didnt give up. I want to do better for myself. It has not only made me stronger, it showed me how to relax and turn off my mind. As someone who struggles with anxiety it has been a great help.
I can tell a difference with my anxiety in my daily life and it is amazing. I don’t do yoga every day now. I just made sure I keep up the habit. Even if it is just 10 minutes in the morning before the kids wake up.
Things that make you healthy need to be a habit. Not just something you do for a month and then give up. This is your life we are talking about. If you want it to be better. If you want to feel better about yourself. GET UP and do something about it.
It doesn’t matter how you choose to do it. Yoga has worked great for me even if I look like a fool while doing it. Find what works for you. Don’t try one thing and give up. There are tons of ways to get healthy.
So everyone take a breath, pick something that works and stick to it. Even if you are just doing this for your mental health, it is important! It is a healthy way to deal with emotions that you otherwise might not know what to do with. You are worth the effort so get to it!
