Positivity is something that I strive for on a daily basis. There are days when finding positivity can be challenging but its there if you really want to find it. This world is hectic, fast, and loud but when I find myself on my yoga mat, I find balance and peace. Taking time for myself and realigning my mind, body and spirit can help make everything around me more peaceful.
I am that person who recommends yoga to everyone. I have no shame about it either. Yoga does so many positive things for your body and mental state that its better than any prescription a doctor could write you. Whenever I enter my yoga studio, I’m immediately surrounded by smiling and happy people. Yogi’s are naturally happy people, and it’s refreshing to be in a room full of positive energy. Everyone in that room is there to work on their practice, and there is no judgment. You are not there to compete with anyone and what happens on your mat is your own personal journey. You are there to focus on yourself. Every class I learn something new about my body, and it’s an amazing experience to see yourself change, adjust, and grow.
Banish Your Bad Mood
Whatever might be bothering me seems to lessen by the end of a yoga class. I walk out more positive and relaxed. This positivity follows me when I leave yoga and becomes a part of my life wherever I am. If I’m having a shitty day or just stressed out, yoga has a way of turning this around. Sometimes I can get my husband to tag along with me and its time together that I really enjoy. There’s something about working our bodies into awkward positions and pushing ourselves while being side by side. It’s almost like we are sharing a moving mediation together. There are times that I have to beg him to come with me, but when he thanks me afterward for taking him, it always makes me smile. I love taking people to yoga with me because I genuinely enjoy seeing people achieve that state of positivity and happiness that everyone deserves to have.
Next time you are in a bad mood just take 15 minutes to stretch, breathe and let your mind surrender to whatever your body is feeling. This is something you can do almost anywhere and at any time. Finding peace is not hard it just takes commitment. Be committed to yourself and your happiness. If you work on it every day, you will see that having a positive outlook is a lot easier than you think. If you are a positive person, it has the ability to influence others. Positivity is a chain reaction that our world needs more of. A happier you leads to you being a happier person to others and has the potential to have an unstoppable ripple effect.
