Well, it's January 30th. I am proud to say that I practiced yoga every day. But I kind of did things a little differently than I intended.
Yoga isn't just about physical exercise- it's also about the mental state that you're in. And while I am not about all of the weird Hindu/Buddhist stuff that goes along with yoga, I firmly believe in meditation and being aware of yourself and the world around you.
For me, there were some days where I needed the physical aspect of yoga. I wasn't feeling good, so I needed those stretches (I'm talking to you, downward facing dog). It's amazing how much easier some of the poses have gotten throughout my practice this month. But there were some days where I needed to meditate. Whether it was meditating on scripture or trying to find calm in the midst of chaos, the mental aspect was what I needed more than I realized.
I definitely think that I will continue practicing yoga on a regular basis. As I posted last month, it's something that I thoroughly enjoy, so I don't think it will be difficult for me to include it in my daily schedule.
For the month of February, I want to focus on my relationship with my husband.
You see, I'm realizing that marriage takes extra work once you have a baby. It can be hard to compartmentalize the "he's Emmett's Daddy" mindset (and what a WONDERFUL Daddy he is), and keep the "he's MY husband" mindset separate from that. First and foremost, he is my husband. So this month, I want to be super intentional with dating my husband, and reminding both of us that we belong to each other. Of course, I purposefully chose this during February, because a) Valentine's Day is this month, and b) we get to go on a romantic getaway in just a few short days! Woohoo!
