But maybe instead of using these 25 Days of Christmas to “treat” ourselves to unhealthy indulgences, we can gift ourselves with healthy treats to feed the soul!
This is the overall jist of Teeg‘s 25 Day Yogathon.
Teeg broke down her rules into three categories: mind, body and soul. But because I know I can’t give up refined sugar for 25 days (mmmm…brownies) I changed her “body” rule to something I personally need to work on. I can still partake in the occasional guilty pleasure, but I will focus my energy on nurturing healthy habits.
Here are GATO’S rules for #25yogathon:
- MIND: 25 days of yoga everyday. Should be easy enough since I already do yoga almost every morning… but no more hitting the snooze button!)
- BODY: 25 days of emphasizing fruits and veggies. (I never get enough fresh fruits and veggies; I’m a carb gal through and through)
- SOUL: 25 days of 15 minutes of meditation everyday. (I don’t meditate, but have been wanting to – I will start tonight!!)
You can join in too! Feel free to tweak the rules to fit your lifestyle or goals. I like the idea of the goals to be gifts for yourself instead of restrictions; it’s more positive that way. Join the twitter party too; we’re talking about it at #25yogathon. p.s. Follow me on Twitter; I love connecting with fellow yogis!
