Post image for Letting Go of “All or Nothing”

Some days, we’re just not feeling 100%. People, events and obligations are tugging at us from left and right, each taking bits of our precious time and energy one by one. On these days, it just doesn’t seem possible to put in our usual “all”… so we choose to put in nothing.

It’s all or nothing,” we think. “I woke up late. I’m tired. If I attempted to do yoga right now, I’d barely get halfway through my usual sequence before having to call it quits.” So we just don’t do it at all.

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Aarona Ganesan, who will be leading our upcoming yoga retreat in Mexico. That day, she shared some advice that really stuck with me: “just show up.” No, it might not be the best yoga class you’ve ever taken. You might struggle to keep your mind clearer than you usually do. The pose you naturally fell into last week might feel simply unattainable. But, you know what? You’ll be happy to have shown up.All_3Today, I challenge you to adopt the “every little bit counts” mentality. Maybe the extent of your yoga practice today is holding child’s pose on your bed for 45 seconds. Maybe your workout is 10 quick squats while you’re waiting for your roommate to get out of the shower. It doesn’t have to be all or nothing, my loves. Every little bit counts.All_4The beautiful thing is that this mentality can actually spill into all areas of life. Maybe you’ve been avoiding calling an old friend because you can’t find time for a thorough conversation. Take 30 seconds just to say hi. Maybe your apartment has gotten out-of-control messy, and you don’t have the energy to do an in-depth clean. Set aside 10 minutes. Target one corner of one room.

Baby steps, a little at a time. Every little bit counts. With this mentality, we realize that we don’t need to fear seemingly daunting tasks. Life is all about staying balanced, and keeping the flow. As long as we’re doing something, we’re doing juuust fine.All_2
