What is Yoga 308

Life is a constant struggle of balancing our body on both a physical and emotional side. Through yoga I have learned several life lessons. Yoga 308 is a goal I set for myself to do at least 60 minutes of yoga for 6 days a week for the next year. I invite anyone to join me on this adventure as I blog about some of my daily experiences. This is not intended to show that I have found peace and tranquility, but rather give my honest feelings of my journey. Enjoy.

Day 59 - New Home

I have had a long day today.  Lots of meetings at work, and lots to do at work.  I will be going to yoga at Orlando Power Yoga tonight, but am trying to blog now because of how busy I have been today.  I was talking to a friend last night about how I am happy to have so many interests and that I am busy.  The alternative would be sitting on my butt and not being interested in much of anything.  I would rather be tired because I am trying too much.  I am also in the process of moving into a new home.  It is an exciting thing to move into a new home.

I came to Florida from Colorado with just my dog and whatever I could fit in my truck.  The rest I left there with the idea that I will return to it some other day.  It is amazing how much crap and clutter I have accumulated over the last year.  The move is exciting because I can once again minimize my needs, refresh, organize, and remove some of the clutter.

I was thinking how much my house reminds me of my head.  Over the years I have managed to gain a lot of unnecessary crap, clutter, and little things that need to be tended to.  The longer you stay in one place the more and more clutter seems to gather and the minor issues start to grow into major ones.  A lot of the clutter that starts to gather is not even mine.  So why does it take a move for me to find an organized life?  Why can't I tend to these minor things and keep my house organized and clean?  This is going to be much more of a priority for me this year.  I will be on the road quite a bit this year, but I will keep my life organized and healthy.  There is no reason that I can not always return to this fresh new feeling.

I think in this house I will make a goal that if there is something minor that needs to be fixed, I will fix it that week.  So instead of having minor issues that build up I will knock them out before they overwhelm me.  It seems like such a simple concept.  What happened over this last year? hmmmmm.

I have been pretty unmotivated to do yoga today and pretty much this week.  I feel like I am just kind of going through the motions and my heart is elsewhere.  I am not sure exactly where it has gone, but it probably has a lot to do with how busy I am this week.  I have been on task with a lot of ideas, jobs, and things that have to get done.  I am thinking a lot today about the future of my company, going to Steamboat this winter, and a lot of other trips I am planning.  My mind is pretty much in the future today.  I am going to work on pulling it back to the now and see if I can regain focus, relaxation, and peace tonight.  My dedication again tonight will be "the now"

Is there clutter that you need to clean out.  Are the little things building up in your house or your head?  Is there something that needs to be tended to.  Why not stop reading this blog and go tend to it.  I would say email me or leave a comment, but go tend to that little thing instead.

I am off to yoga. Keep it simple.
