What is pushing you? What is pulling you? Follow the pull. It’s the first step toward flying.
My Transformation =)
The mantra I repeated to myself day in and day out: “Dedication, determination, discipline”…
It was on a poster in the first gym I went to in college.. It struck a chord in me, because I knew that’s what it would take to achieve my goals… and ever since, when I am feeling unmotivated, I repeat it to myself.
“The reason people give up so fast is because they look at how far they have to go, instead of how far they have come.” I won’t lie.. I came close to quitting several times… but that mantra, and the knowledge that giving up meant failing, kept me going. If I had given up, I wouldn’t be where I am today. Find your own mantra, repeat it and stick with it. You will get there! Never give up! <3
The Health Benefits of Yoga | MayoClinic
The potential health benefits of yoga are numerous and may include:
- Stress reduction. With its quiet, precise movements, yoga draws your focus away from your busy, chaotic day and toward calm as you move your body through poses that require balance and concentration.
- Increased fitness. As you learn and refine new poses, you may enjoy improved balance, flexibility, range of motion and strength. And this means you’re less likely to injure yourself in other physical endeavors or in your daily activities.
- Management of chronic health conditions. Yoga might help with a variety of health conditions, such as cancer, depression, pain, anxiety and insomnia, by helping with sleep problems, fatigue and mood. Yoga also can help reduce heart rate and blood pressure.
- Weight loss. If you’re overweight or have binge-eating disorder, yoga may help you make the healthy lifestyle changes necessary to gain control of your eating and drop those extra pounds.
While you shouldn’t expect yoga to cure you or offer 100 percent relief, it can help some health conditions when combined with standard treatment. And if you already enjoy good health, yoga can be an enjoyable supplement to your regular fitness routine. - MayoClinic
