Sometimes we let life run us, instead of running our life. That is when you lose charge of yourself. Our rough routines have made us forget who we are, and made us into robots.
We are always too busy to do anything for us, and it is always too late to change everything for you. But get this, we are not always “too busy” to do anything, and it is never “too late” to take a U-turn and change your life for better.
Today, I am going to discuss some ways to take charge of your life using yoga.
We often confuse the word yoga with sitting with our eyes closed for hours or standing with one foot, which is not the case. Yoga is also about meditation;
2. Are you in charge of your time?
3. Are you on your priority list?
We often say that we should change with time. And we believe that, but still, we are always afraid of it. Whenever a possibility of change comes, it brings chaos in our minds with it. And that is why we never change our circumstances. You know this job is taking too much of you, and you do not like it, but you are still doing it because you are too busy to find better one. You know you have to start working out, but you are too busy to make time for it.
I know change can be a terrifying thing, and I am not asking to leave your job or start working out right now. Start making small changes and get comfortable with it. If you are not sure about anything, meditate, and do yoga. Clear your mind, and ask yourself, what do you want?
Most of the time, you do not even realize where your day went. You wake up, go to your job, college, school or maybe it was an off day, but still, you are wondering when did the clock strike 8? There is nothing to worry about, it happens to all of us, what matters is what do we do about that. Are you letting time slip from your hands? or are you doing something to control it? Yes, you cannot control time, but you can manage it.
Make a schedule and stick to it. I know it can be hard at the start, but once you get used to it, time will be in your control.
Let us face the truth, we are never on our priority list, and even if we are, we are not on the top. It is time to stop pleasing everyone else or stop working for others goals and start working on your own goals. When you are a selfless person, people start to think that they can control you, and they can make you do anything.
Make some time for yourself; you do not have to utilize that time going out with your friends, you can use that time and be alone. Take a long bath, watch a movie, go shopping, or whatever makes you feel happy and fulfilled. That is the best meditation of all.
Taking charge of your life is extremely important. You only get one life, and it is important that you live it the way you want to live it, not the way others want you to live. Taking charge does not mean doing what you need to do, it is about what you want to do, or what makes you feel like you have no regrets in life.
