Doing things that make me happy

August has been a strange month. I went on vacation then I returned and somehow I forgot to do yoga. The last week was so busy at work, I did not have the time and the will to roll out yoga mat to do practice. I did only 6 practices so far in August.

I am so hesitant to admit my laziness. To admit it is incredibly difficult when no one around me has any idea why I am doing it at first place. No one, neither in my family nor any of my friends do yoga practice. I am a lonely wolf, trying to finish primary series of ashtanga yoga, for no reason other than staying strong and healthy.

In 17 days of my vacation I gain 3 kg or 7 pounds. Good food, three meals a day, a lot of fresh bread and cakes and of course a tons of beer created stomach belly again. I have to go on diet all over again.

Today is Sunday, August 27, 2017, I am (re)starting my life all over again. Daily yoga practice, walking in High Park and watching what I eat are priorities. Last night I went to bed at 8 p.m. and I slept until 5 a.m. this morning. I was exhausted from the work, I needed the rest.

I am going to live a conscious life, a deliberate and thoughtful life. I'm going to listen to myself and then make choices. I'm going to ask myself why I'm doing what I'm doing: looking at the reasons behind the actions I take. It’s not going with the flow in the stream of life, but taking purposeful and intentional actions.

I'm going to ask myself what I want and do things that makes me happy.
