108 days yoga challenge - day 96
A smile goes long way.. as they say. Smiling has a ton of benefits.
Sometimes during a difficult pasture my yoga teacher asks people to smile, and then people start laughing because it's sort of an oxymoron being bend in a complex asana and smile at the same time.
Naturally, difficult and stressful situations are asking for a different facial reaction - eyebrows together, forehead tense, lips/mouth straight or down.
I know it may sound crazy (and what doesn't in my blog! 😂😂😂) but try to BREAK THE RULES! If you are in a difficult/challenging/stressful situation - SMILE.
As my yoga teacher says - DONT DO A SPLIT WITH YOUR FACE, do it with your legs. 😂😂😂. Seriously. Are you being confronted by a loved one about something? - SMILE 😁😁😁Your boss is up your butt about something? - SMILE (in your heart though, he/she may not take it the right way 😜) Person on a subway pushed you - SMILE! 😊😊😊 All these small things fill up our life and if we learn how to react positively or neutrally to little "itches" in life - it will become a much better ADVENTURE.
Smile at people who walk towards you, smile at your neighbors, smile at a person who hands you your sandwich or coffee at a deli store, smile at a person you are dancing with, smile at someone who caught your glimpse on a subway car... SMILE MORE! Use anything at your disposal to MAKE YOUR DAY BETTER and more memorable for the GOOD TGINGS! 𗀠𗀠𗀠
A shift within a shift..?!? Is what I'm asking myself... though I can't help it. Unconsciously starting The Power of Now while enduring the lengthiest version of my letting go process - changed everything. "Your cooperation is an essential part of it. However you look at, it is a quantum leap in the evolution of consciousness, as well as our only chance of survival as a race." ✨😳🙏🏼 Whoa @eckharttolle !!
The challenge: ✊🏼Ask ourselves this at several different moments during the day - "Is there joy, ease, and lightness in what I am doing? If there isn't, then time is covering up the present moment, and life is perceived as a burden or a struggle." #changingtheconversation is a lot about changing the inner dialogue. And I'm anxious to see how much lighter life becomes if I even just ask this question to myself once a day.... Challenge accepted. Who's gonna join me??! 😏😏🤓⚡️😎
