It doesn’t sound so inspiring to share, that sometimes motivation is not present for me. Sometimes I don’t feel like practicing yoga. I never fight something if my body truly doesn’t seem to be cooperating with what I think I should be doing. Some days I get up and just really don’t feel like getting on my yoga mat. Although it is very rare that I don’t do some type of practice every day, there are occasions that it just doesn’t happen.
Do I get hard on myself for not finding the motivation?
Not at all, that isn’t a productive mindset. Sometimes our bodies need healing time, and sometimes we don’t know exactly from what we need healing. Your body will always communicate to you what it needs. So chances are, if you feel too tired to practice, you may have overworked it somehow. Or you have not been eating well to fuel your body properly.
Very rarely do I get on my mat and leave it feeling regret. So put on a comfy outfit, an uplifting music playlist and roll out your mat. Because I promise you, it will only take a few deep breaths for you to remember why you practice and you’ll be glad you found the motivation.
