In April 2007, I took up yoga as my body needed some workout and that started a beautiful journey where along the way I found some enlightenment of my inner self while my body amazed me with how it was able to cope with the yoga poses which were so difficult to do in the beginning.
The 66-day Self-Care program which starts from today is my way of thanking my body and I hope that it will be an awesome journey of new discoveries.
This is my manifesto for the 66 days which I will try my best to adhere to.
Be kind to myself. Do not self-criticize and always remain optimistic.
Grow from every mistakes made and never regret the past.
Meditate at least 5 to 10 minutes each day.
Have at least 6 to 7 hours of sleep daily.
Enjoy my breath and take my time to come into the yoga poses.
Get up and stretch every hour after sitting in front of the computer.
Respect others' space and their unique individuality.
Keep a journal of any observations that I have come across during this 66 days.
I will not be following everything in the C.A. Kobu Self-Care program workbook as I will be incorporating things that I have been doing in my routine such as my yoga practice. The one thing from the workbook that I would be following closely would be the Writing Exercises as I believe it will help to raise my awareness about my body and emotions and the way I perceive my relationship with other people.
