Happy Day 24 of our 30 Day Yoga Challenge – Ahimsa
Good Morning Yogis! I started Daily Yogi with flash cards of the Yamas and Niyamas in my day planner. Now, after deep dives introducing the 8 Limbs of Yoga, each of the Asanas (Poses) in Surya Namaskar / Sun Salutations, and a couple of special features, we are back to my flash card days. Last time we practiced the opposite of the first of the Yamas, Ahimsa (non-harming) with a random act of kindness, but today we will take it a step further and practice active non-harming.
Today’s Positive Practice suggestion
Today’s Daily Yogi Practice is to actively exercise Ahimsa or non-harming today. Need ideas? It can be big or small. We should strive to exercise non-harming with our thoughts, words and/or actions.
For actions, you can avoid killing a bug you find in the house, and instead use a cup and paper or cardboard to carry outside. Perhaps drive compassionately if you have to drive today.
Maybe refrain from letting your temper get the best of you and stay kind throughout a difficult interaction.. this will probably be non-harming in both words and actions. Keep in your mind and try to follow “if you do not have anything nice to say, do not say anything at all.”
Or, to practice Ahimsa with our thoughts, try to stay positive today with yourself, and notice and stop yourself from any negative self-talk or other criticism.
