Good Morning Yogis! We are continuing on with weaving practice of each of the Yamas into our day. Last time we practiced the fourth of the Yamas Brahmacharya/Moderation with choosing the middle path in any area of our lives. Today we will be more specific.
Today’s Daily Yogi Practice is to actively exercise Brahmacharya/Moderation with our electronics and social media. Social media may be a useful tool to keep in touch with friends and family, especially in this isolating time. However, social media does not make us happy, and it can also distance us from the people we are spending time with. Many of us spend WAY too much time on our phones. It is the weekend, so many of us are off of work today. If you can, practice Brahmacharya with your phone and especially with social media, and enjoy your time with your loved ones this weekend. Perhaps encourage the entire household to spend a few hours “off the grid.”
Please comment if you decided to practice Brahmacharya/Moderation today with your phones and social media, how did it go? How did it make you feel? Always remember, be kind!
