How I feel on New Year’s Day is symbolic to me of how I will face the New Year. I like it to be a day of clear headed contemplation. It is a time of lying to rest the things that did not work out, and bolstering my optimism for the beauty I want to bring into my life from my work to my family and friendships.
In truth every moment is a new beginning but the first moments of the New Year are that much more powerful.
Even when you don’t spend this time in quiet contemplation, you most probably have considered some goals, resolutions, or commitments you want to achieve. The key is to not forget these dreams once the end of January draws near.
We see this so often in the yoga studio or other places like the gym where for the first few weeks of January there is a tremendous flurry of activity. And then each week, more and more people drop away. What happened to our renewed commitment to be healthy, happy and whole?
Don’t let February be the end of your dedication to your health.
Whatever your dreams and aspirations, without your health they mean nothing.
Yoga will address your physical, mental and emotional well being. It will transform your life. It’s up to you if you’re brave enough to try.
Happy New Year, Happy New Beginnings, Happy New Life!
Hi Laura, everyone seems so burnt out after the holiday season its almost depressing when January hits. It would be so great if we could launch into the New Year with energy and enthusiasm for all we dream to accomplish.Like(0) REPLY
