13 Jun Discipline will set you free! (Plus 9 disciplines to try)
I’ve been going to my yoga & meditation class every week for the last 5 months and that is a major breakthrough for me! I rarely stick at anything for this long that isn’t ‘obligatory’.
This morning I really didn’t feel like going. I went for a power walk before work, so I was thinking my exercise was done for the day and maybe I could just chill this morning. I even tried to convince myself that my feelings were my guide and that I really shouldn’t go. I mentioned this to my boyfriend and he said:
“You should go. Discipline will set you free!”
This statement pulled on my ‘dream life’ strings and fired me into action! You see, I lack discipline. I maintain very few healthy routines in my life, apart from basic ones like brushing my teeth, showering and eating. Everything that seems to be a ‘spiritual luxury’ gets done every now and then as a treat, or when inspiration strikes.
The reason I started going to yoga regularly was because I got hit by vertigo & anxiety in January, and I found that Yoga & meditation – specifically with an experienced teacher to hold me accountable – was the only thing that let me switch off & be at peace, at the time.
