Yoga Challenge: Yamas (Interpersonal Ethics) #2 – Satya (Truthfulness)

Happy Day 25 of our 30 Day Yoga Challenge – Satya

Good Morning Yogis! We are continuing on with weaving practice of each of the Yamas into our day. Last time we practiced the second of the Yamas, Satya (Truthfulness) with a kind truth, but today we will examine and practice from a different angle with being true to self.

Today’s Positive Practice suggestion

Today’s Daily Yogi Practice is to actively exercise Satya or truthfulness with ourselves today. Need ideas? It can be big or small. This usually means examining mindsets, practices, or people in our life that may not be serving us. For example, maybe you are like me and should really examine eating less candy and more veggies. Or maybe you have other unhealthy practices like smoking, or a medical issue you have been putting off getting examined. Perhaps you have “friends” who cut you down to bring themselves up or consistently take but never offer support. We usually know deep down what truths we need to accept… perhaps meditate to allow these thoughts to come up. Accepting difficult truths is a big step, and do not push yourself to do anything until you are ready. But, if you decide you are up for it, plan a course of action to resolve what you had been avoiding.

  1. With my kids being home since March and not much to do during this pandemic. I’ve been drinking alcohol way more then I should be. I’m going to drink more water this month and less booze.

  2. 2 weeks ago I had an emergency root canal and still have a temporary filling in one of my teeth from that. 😬 I’ve been putting off making an appointment to get the permanent filling for like a week now (mostly because it’s such an inconvenience to find a time that my husband can watch our kid so I can go). But I’m gonna figure it out today, because obviously temporary fillings don’t last forever and I know it’s only going to turn into a much bigger problem/inconvenience if I let it go much longer lol.

  3. Yeah definitely drinking for me too. Just makes me feel fat and gross, I was doing better but kinda fell off the wagon, so I’ll re-commit to that.

  4. I have been eating way too much candy and I know I need to cut out sugar. The inflammation makes me feel terrible but sugar is so addictive! I’ll be trying my hardest form here on out
