If you have wanted to try yoga, but are intimidated to go to a class, check out her youtube channel (linked above). She is great at showing options and alternatives, and she goes slowly through everything, plus, she's just fun!
Adriene uses "find what feels good" in her online classes to encourage you not to just try to conform to the yoga pose, but to make it your own, and do what you need for where you are physically or mentally that day. Sometimes you're just not going to be able to do the full stretch, so modify it, and find what feels good!
But I digress...
I love that advice for life in general. Not to advocate a hedonistic pursuit of always doing whatever you want, but within the confines of what you MUST do, to live your life, be a responsible adult, etc., find what feels good.
You have to go to work, but even if you love your work, can you make it "feel good"?
- I used an exercise ball as a chair a few hours each day.
- I ate outside when it was nice.
- I took a walk every day during lunch.
I put up my funny "office decor" that made me happy.
You have a long commute?
- Put games or book-apps on your phone.
- If you drive, subscribe to a podcast or play audio books.
- Make the decision to find something/someone on the trip that makes you smile.
- Make the decision to be someone who makes others smile! (I have caught people staring into my car as I belt out a tune with the radio. Yay!)
Find what feels good!
