2016: New Year resolution

10 Jan

A New Year’s resolution is a tradition, most common in the Western Hemisphere but also found in the Eastern Hemisphere, in which a person makes a promise to do an act of self-improvement or something slightly nice, such as opening doors for people beginning from New Year’s Day…

I was little bit late to post about that but I want to reassure you: I wrote down my resolution in time on my 2016 planner (look this photo).

But I felt that I’ve missed something and that’s it: an article open my mind ” Earlier this week, Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg, posted a few new year’s resolutions on Facebook . His physical goal for 2016? To run one mile a day for 365 days. Props to Zuckerberg for bringing awareness to health and fitness, but he’s not the first one to come up with the idea
Yes, of course…I set a few realistic goals but I didn’t really insert an hard one…and we  decided (yes my and my soulmate) to set this goal: to do everyday ten push-up.pushups It’s realistic because we’re in shape, we’re healthy but it’s difficult because we live blended in a society that ask you constantly to do more and more and more, giving up what that really matter to you to do something else.
Now it’s the time to reclaim our time and do things that we love…and that we’re inspired to do.
I’d like to suggest you to spend few minutes looking and this pictureseverydayloveart
they’re lovely and obviously the name of the website it’s everyday love art.

Also I’d loke to share with you just few articles that captured my mind: the first one is about JDBanke an artist from Seattle how define it’s self with this words I use my intuition when I paint and create installations. I don’t believe in dressing simple ideas in frilly costumes to appease conventions. I enjoy what I do. Interesting !
The second one it’s about the Science of Taste that describe 12 fun facts you might not know (such as the fact that tastes can be genetically determined, or the fact that sweeter foods create stronger food memories).
And last but no least an article from The New York Times titled ‘Design Thinking’ for a Better You: Bernard Roth, a prominent Stanford engineering professor, says that design thinking can help everyone form the kind of lifelong habits that solve problems, achieve goals and help make our lives better. “Design thinking on the highest level is a way of reframing the way you look at the world and deal with issues, and the main thing is this idea of empathy,” Dr. Roth says. “If you have tried something and it hasn’t worked, then you’re working on the wrong problem.

Ok folks I think that’s all for today
See you soon!

Restart Yoga in 2016!

6 Jan

Few days before the new year I received an email that began like this:

Here’s the situation: you started doing yoga and you loved it. You’ve experienced all the benefits of a consistent practice. Maybe you felt less stressed and healthier. You slept better and your back didn’t hurt anymore. You did yoga regularly for months or maybe even years. You found the classes that you liked or you worked hard to establish a home practice. And then something changed.

Maybe your job got really crazy or you moved or your teacher moved or you went back to school or you had a baby. Maybe it wasn’t anything specific you can point a finger at, but for some reason or no reason, you stopped doing yoga. This happens to even the most committed yogis. But if you’re reading this article, it’s probably because you miss your practice. And the good news is, there’s absolutely no reason why you and yoga shouldn’t be reunited and every reason why you should. Here’s how to get back into yoga, step by step.

And that’s it…I started talking about my yogi’s class with my soulmate, expressing the desire to restart lessons and seminars and all the stuff..and this article game me another sign that I was doing the right decision no matter what!

I restarted my yoga’s class on 5 January and it was amazing..There’re new members and old friends and my teacher Valery open her arms and gave me a immense hug saying you’re always welcome yogi sunrise (my yogi name). An indelible memory..like I was breathing the magic air of yoga for the first time!

When you listen to yourself, everything comes naturally. It comes from inside, like a kind of will to do something. Try to be sensitive. That is yoga.
