While laying in bed at around 4am, rain pouring outside, in one of my favorite places ... Durban!! I had this thought "I need to focus on getting the best from my body and life". Meaning working out, taking better care of myself and also better care of my inner peace.
Being back in the place I find more stressful but still somewhere I love because I have a wonderful boyfriend and amazing family here I realized this would be the ultimate challenge. To find the same kind of balance and peace I have when sitting overlooking the ocean, feeling sand between my toes and having many moments of clarity. I have made a list before if you can remember and even though I have done a few things on it, I still feel like my consistency has been sub par. But I do believe the first step is always figuring out what is off balance within.. Which means for the next few weeks I want to try more of the following, to get me balance. If you know what I mean...
- Daily meditation : as I would do on the beach.. I need to find the same serenity within me wherever I am .
- Morning or afternoon runs
- 20 minute yoga twice a week
- Start my morning without being on the phone : I am barely on my phone when in serene places, but when I am in Jhb I find that the minute I wake up I find myself scrolling through tweets or status updates.
So you might be wondering why I am telling you guys... well I hope this will hold me more accountable. Also having a post glaring back at you saying "see, this was a goal" will hopefully be super effective!
What is one final goal you have for the 2013?
