I’m excited to start the new year with a new website and blog: Suncoast Healthy Life (www.suncoasthealthylife.com). If you haven’t subscribed yet, please follow me to receive email updates including health and wellness tips, news, and events! Thank you, Tamara
My New Year reminder this year is to reflect on the radical and grandiose rigid resolutions in past years that never really worked! I invite you to consider the yogic approach to create and manifest the life you truly want to live.
How about trying something NEW this year? Why not plant seeds of intention to slowly move in the direction of the new path you would like to explore.
Consider the practice of yoga as a similar analogy to planting seeds of a beautiful rose bush. The process requires time to nurture and carefully cultivate before the first bud presents. Eventually in its own time the bud will blossom!
This year, take your yoga off the mat and into your life practicing the techniques to living mindfully, skillfully, and simply – allowing the beauty of life to unfold moment by moment, breath by breath, day by day.
Step 1) Visualize the new intentions you would care to create.
Step 2) Practice gently with self care and allow the process to begin.
Step 3) Offer your best each and every day, then make a conscious choice to surrender the result or outcome.
Step 4) Begin to accept (rather than resist ) whatever arises as we meet and greet ourselves and others each and every day.
Step 5) Embrace discomfort and vulnerability when things are not going the way we would like. Knowing this too shall pass, it always does.
Step 6) Keep your focus on the larger meaning of life, allowing everything to settle over time, be a witness to the drama rather than a participant. Eventually it all falls away.
Step 7) Settle into the place of peace even when things do not happen the way you think you would like or expect. Be open to the surprises that might far exceed your original intention.
Step 8) Choose consciously to discover your most joyful self, access hidden wells of energy, enhance creativity, love yourself and others unconditionally, embrace your truth, and live authentically!
