I've been feeling very contemplative these last several weeks, mostly in how it relates to refocusing my energy. I try to live each day with intention vs. existing in spaces where I could make better use of my time.
I've also been thinking about why I do what I do, the resources from which I draw my inspiration and the importance of having a community, because, honestly ... I've realized that I've been lacking inspiration. A lack that is born from spreading myself too thin. A lack that is born from not focusing as much as I would like on my own selfcare.
And I'm not talking about drinking smoothies every day and eating an impeccable diet. My selfcare entails personal development in the form of reading and workshopping to stay fresh in my field; taking time to be by myself, because that's my way of regaining my energy; and taking classes and interacting with other fitness/wellness professionals to stay inspired and connected to my community as a whole. Being in this space can be very lonely, so it's important to have a community that you can always call your own.
Taking a break from teaching before the arrival of Baby J has been one of the best decisions that I could make for myself right now. Freeing up more time for me to relax, to regain my energy, to take some yoga classes of my own, and allowing me that creative space to feel inspired again.
Let's just say I'm feeling renewed again .. although baby is really starting to cramp my style right now. 🙄
So I ask you, why do you do what you do? Where do you draw your sources of inspiration? And how do you regain that inspiration when lost? #aimtrue#prenatalyoga#35weekspregnant
My story with the gym is funny. To be honest I never liked it 🙊 but modern world came and brough neck and back pains. I also started surfing and in order to be better surfer and not injure myself I had to be stronger and healthier that moment I realised I had to go to the gym and it's been changing my life since. I feel better, stronger, more exergized I improved my surfing and my body looks nicer. To accomplish something you have to start from somewhere. The beginning is the hardest but soon after you will enjoy the results and feel proud of yourself. .
Minha história com academia é complicada para ser sincera eu sempre a odiei, mas o mundo moderno veio e me trouxe dores no pescoço e costas. Além disso comecei a surfar e para evocluir e não me machucar e teria que ficar aos forte e saudável. Foi aí que eu realizei que precisava ir para academia e confesso que tem mudado a minha vida. Eu me sinto melhor, tenho mais energia, estou melhorando meu surf cada vez mais e de quebra meu corpo está mais bonito. Para conseguir alguma coisa você só precisa começar. O começo é o mais difícil mas depois o orgulho de você e dos resultados te enchem de alegria. .
