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 322 - Back in Check

Today is my day off from yoga.  This week seems to be about balance and focus.  I really have felt a shift in both of these this week.  Looking back at the beginning of yoga308 this shift used to make me frustrated and led towards depression.

Last night I indulged in some of the other things I am excited to get focused on.  I ordered some pizza, did some painting, and watched Food Inc.  This morning I continued to just let things go.  I played some video games, walked the dog, and decided to write my blog so I can have the rest of the day to do what I want.

The truth is, I have focus and balance.  I have been focused on yoga and yoga308 for the last 322 days.  I want to do other things, and I do.

I am very excited for what lies ahead, but I also feel very grounded today.  I did some of the things that I have been meaning to do.  I have regained my balance and focus.  I am excited that I have so many things on my plate.  I am excited that one of my frustrations is being excited about so many things.

Sometimes we all loose our focus.  Sometimes we all loose our balance.  How do we regain it, and how quickly can we regain it?  Do we allow it to fall into frustration, depression, or anger?  Is frustration just part of our balance in the first place?
