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 321 - Finding the new focus

Today I went to a yin yoga class with Kristen Schneider at Full Circle Yoga.  I know I seem to say this every Friday, but I love yin yoga.  It makes me feel so relaxed.  Friday is always a great day to do yin yoga and wind down my week.

I was reading the above quote today.  It is such a simple premiss, but how easy it is for us to forget.  My main focus over the last year has been on work, travel, yoga, and blogging.  As this year ends I feel my focus shifting.  I have a few other projects I am excited with, and I am finding it harder to keep my focus on my original main focus.  I want to find this intense concentration on one thing again.

My excitement level on new projects makes it harder to keep this original focus.  Today for instance I spent some time painting.  It helped ease my mind and regain the focus on my original projects.  I feel extremely grateful to be excited about so many different things in life.  One of my biggest issues is to keep my focus on one project.  I have learned a lot of focus through yoga, but want to try to apply this more when I am off the mat.

Maybe I will take a day to focus on only one project.
