Namaste | Yoga and Tea Challenge
Sunday, November 17, 2013
With the holiday season in full swing, my diet has been horrible. I have pretty much put no carbs on hold until after New Year's (especially since I currently have macaroni and cheese and stuffing in my refrigerator). With my diet going completely downhill, I have decided to start two different but similar challenges to get it back on track - yoga and tea. I used to do yoga and drink tea a lot, but for some reason, I just fell off for both of them. They really kept me balanced, and I decided to bring them back, to not only get my diet back on track, but also from a restorative perspective. I've been very stressed lately, and calming down and just letting go is something that I need to take to heart. I have a lot of great things going on in my life, and I don't need to worrying about the few bad things.
The challenge is pretty simple. For yoga, I am required to do, at least, 5 minutes of yoga and 5 minutes of meditation a day. And for tea, I am only allowed to drink tea and water, nothing else (meaning I have to say goodbye to eggnog and coffee for a bit). These are pretty small changes, but I know by the end of the week, they will make a world of difference.
