Surround yourself with what you want

January 31st, 2012 § 3 comments

Since I’ve moved back to Sydney, I haven’t been able to find a perfect yoga class. I was feeling lethargic, out of shape and unmotivated.

Out of habit, I subscribed to Yoga Journal as soon as I had a steady address. Just doing that little thing made a huge difference to my home practice.

As I read, I practiced. And after I was done with the magazine, I still kept it around as a reminder to myself.

Surround yourself with the things you love and you want to do more often. In that same frame of mind, go around your house and omit things you feel no longer serve you.

I know as a fact that if I buy a pack of ice cream, I will justify eating one a day. So I choose not to buy them.

It’s the little things like this that make up a life.

    Hi Tash! You might remember me, I used to blog at Half Accidental, you interviewed me at one stage about photojournalism. Anyway, just wanted to let you know I’m blogging again, this time to document my roadtrip around Australia :)

  • Good luck Sameer. Respect for not owning a microwave or television for six years.

    I haven’t owned a microwave, television, and coffee maker for over 6 years because I know that I will succumb to habits I don’t want to encourage if I did. Omitting things in your life that don’t serve you is an important concept that not many people espouse.

    Thanks for the reminder — this week I’m omitting a person in my life that makes me feel more hurt than loved. It’s the same concept, but it’s harder with people, especially people who have been central to your life for years. It won’t be done, but it needs to be done. Wish me luck.
