Thanks to all of you who entered our first ever contest! We were so pleased to have so many people respond and we deeply enjoyed reading your submissions. While all of your tips and mantras are extremely motivational, useful and heartfelt, we fell for this one from Georgina Smith:
I find that for most of us, lack of time is the biggest problem. A mudra, an affirmation , a minute just to connect with your inner self, one Surya Namaskar, an act of kindness , smiling to your own heart or even just sitting in easy pose sometimes. Every little thing you do helps keep you focused and in your centre. It doesn’t have to be a large proportion of your time. Small steps to bring you to self realization.
“Small steps to bring you to self realization.” How many of us fall for doing ALL or NOTHING? It’s true that the “small steps”, together, can bring self realization. When we don’t have 2 hours to drive to the local yoga studio, we can still take 5 minutes and do some simple breathing exercises and sun salutations. It’s easy to fall for the idea of more is, well, better. But, it’s not always true.
Congratulations Georgina and thank you for this beautiful motivational tip! We’ll be in touch via email to request your mailing address.
