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 211 - I love Ashtanga yoga
I was thinking the other day about how our society likes to say things like "I eat this because it is healthier for me." I was trying to figure out the point in our lives where it was acceptable to say this rather then "I eat healthy." Why do we put ourselves (me included) in a space where we eat or live unhealthy lifestyles. Why do we learn that it is ok to live unhealthy lifestyles. Where did this come from. I want a Mcdonalds cheeseburger because it is easy, it tastes good, and it's in my face. At one point I starting saying I should not eat this crap. I should live healthyer. I should stop drinking, I should stop smoking weed, I should exercise more. We all say these things. Why don't we all just live a healthy life?
I have been on a giant strive to get to a healthy lifestyle on both a physical and mental level. I think this is a lifetime practice. It is something that does not happened over night. We need to evolve into healthy beings both physically and mentally. We need to learn that instant gratification is not the answer to happiness. Getting to this healthy lifestyle will take a lot of work. Our thoughts will evolve over time into a healthy one as long as we make daily strives towards these healthy life. We need to accept that we are human and we make mistakes, but we can always strive towards what you know is healthy. Realize that what you think is healthy may not actually be healthy. Be the change and start today.
