wellbeing yoga diary


Hi again, beautiful OYL readers… I’m posting this for myself as well as anyone of you who may read it.

You see, WE ALL NEED MOTIVATION. Daily. Hourly, even minute by minute! So I’m going to open up my personal (very new) ‘Yoga’ Diary, for you to see here & it’s very honest! I hope it will help to inspire you to a little extra ‘self-motivation‘ for something you want this year.

Each year goes by. 2012 will too. Every year (at Xmas-time, I think :( ohhh no, another year I didn’t do my yoga), this is victim mentality. Even WORSE LOL, I get jealous of ‘downward dogs’ >>> ACTUAL DOGS stretching in the ‘downward dog’ posture.  Quite ridiculous isn’t it? Yes hilarious.

So FINALLY, here I am on the last dayof January 2012, kicking some butt, up it goes! YAY! Practicing yoga & it feels soo good! I’m super busy. I don’t have time & have 100 excuses, believe me. I prepare three loving meals a day for my family, making everything from scratch, juices & smoothies daily, fresh bread, muesli, run kids here & there, work as a model, am writing a book, shop in about 5 different places to get all the best prices & organic produce I can… rave rave, the list goes on.

If you want something though, YOU CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN. If you really want it, you will make it happen. 

This is what I really want. It may take 10 years, but to make it happen I’m going to need to practice today, tomorrow, & every other day until it does. Best thing is. Every moment I do it, of every day I make the time for it, I LOVE IT. IT’S SOO WORTH IT.

Same goes for anything really, what is that you really want? Maybe it’s to eat healthier, run 3 x pw, learn to surf, horseride or waterski. Perhaps it’s to grow organic vegetables. Choose a personal goal. One you’ve wanted for a long time & set small, achievable goals. Before you know it you may be growing so many vegetables you have a stall at the farmers market! Who knows? In the meantime you’ll be enjoying yourself.

Inspire yourself by purchasing a nice diary which suits the theme of what you want to achieve most. For me it’s yoga, but I’m also adding other exercise notes to it. Overall, my theme is wellbeing & fitness.  PERFECT ;)

PS. Thank-you to Wellbeing for such a perfect diary. Loving it, can’t wait to see it FULL end 2012. Hmm….now I’ll be accountable won’t I?…

    Thank you Abigail, thats just what I needed. Im doing power walking/cardio 6-7 times a week and try to do yoga at least three times but most of the times Im just complaining to myself about how stressfull everything is (when it fact it really, really could be worse!) and how Id rather chill on the couch instead of doing my 60min dvd, when in fact thats the best you can do for relaxation.

      Thanks Nele for sharing, what you’re doing is my favourite combo too! With a surf when I can (for the fun factor) ;) xx

    Motivation and nourishment are so vital to us humans,especially how society has developed,our lifestyles,jobs,etc,we must nourish and nurture right away in the morning! Right now I’m homeless but my yoga and breath give me strength and balance and calm.It’s the first thing I do when I wake up.I know positivity will get me on the right way.Thank you Abi :-)

    It’s not only positive thoughts-any inclination of positive awareness stemming from your brain affects your whole being.Yes,it’s so vital to do that,and to process all fears,worries,stresses OUT of your being so you are only light and positivity.
    It is all working out well-will be staying with a friend near the beach,getting out of the killing city.Thanks Abi! Let us continue to affect all through positivity! :-)
