Knowing how to ingrain habits can also support you with your practice at home. At Samahita we provide a solid education and training in breathwork, one of the main reasons students return year after year. Initially, however, some can struggle to keep it up when they go home even with the best of intentions – life gets in the way, they drop the practice, return to learn again, practice for a while, drop it again etc. Eventually it may become ingrained but without the accountability from a teacher that one might have with, for example, an asana practice, it can be harder to really embed the habit. Now may be an excellent opportunity to do just that, if it has been a call for you, using the above tips.
What a gift to give yourself during this time, whether it is a new breathwork practice (3), or a practice you’ve started multiple times and really want to now embed in your life. It doesn’t matter, begin now, with stronger intention and some extra determination.
We have all been given this gift of a reset. A chance to begin again. To realize what is important in life, and to drop needless distractions. A chance to wake up to a new way of doing things, more aligned with our own personal growth and path, if we choose to accept this opportunity in front of us as life begins to open up again. Embrace it and this could be the starting point of a new healthy habit for life.
