Good Morning Yogis! Today is the Spring Equinox – Happy Spring Yogis in the North Hemisphere! Today is Aparigraha or Non-Attachment Day. Last time we practiced the positive of the last of the Yamas – Aparigraha / non-attachment directly by practicing non-attachment with our actions. Today we will practice the positive meaning of non-attachment, or gratitude.
bONUS dAILY mEDITATION cHALLENGE
Today’s Daily Yogi Practice is to make a list of five things (I just love Top 5 Lists!) you are grateful for in your life, right now. OR, if you are ready for an added challenge – try to practice gratitude all day today, and especially in any challenging situation. Need some ideas for your list? They can be big or small.
You may be grateful for physical things like your health or your long hair or your home or your beautiful garden. You may be grateful for your family or friends or pets. You may be proud of something you accomplished or positive personal traits like humor or loyalty. You may be grateful for past learning experiences or positive changes you see in yourself or the world. Or, these are tough times.. if you are proud for getting out of bed and taking a shower, or putting on pants for your zoom meeting, then celebrate small victories!
This practice is about finding the joy and blessings in the moment. Focus your attention to positivity and abundance already in your life, rather than putting off your happiness for something in the future.
