“We ought to do good to others as simply as a horse runs, or a bee makes honey, or a vine bears grapes season after season without thinking of the grapes it has borne.”
Doing good for others begins with the self. Whether practicing the Dharma (the teachings of Buddha), or the Yamas and Niyamas (yoga’s moral and ethical codes), doing anything positive benefits both ourselves and all beings. This month, let’s:
- Feed our bodies well. Try out these nutrition packed smoothies: https://www.acefitness.org/education-and-resources/lifestyle/blog/3582/3-scrumptious-smoothies-that-pack-a-nutritional-punch
- Rest and restore. Set aside 30 minutes once a week for a guided yoga nidra relaxation session. Here is one to try: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MN6vapfvWOM
- BE(e) the inspiration, by showing up for ourselves. Make a daily meditation practice a priority. Set your alarm 10, 15, 20 minutes earlier, and begin your day with a session of meditation. Insight Timer, and Head Space, are two meditation apps I highly recommend.
See you on the mat!
