Prepare Yourself Mentally for the 30 Day Yoga Challenge

The word “challenge” connotes effort, hard work, and achieving a specific objective. Therefore, it would be very typical for us to experience some of the above mentioned things.

But what if we viewed this 30 Day Yoga challenge as a gesture of goodwill and self-love? Something that encourages us to set aside a brief period each day to stop, breathe, and reaffirm our connection to ourselves. Enabling us to rejuvenate and maintain strength for others who count on us.

Observe Your Body

Consider the 30 day yoga challenge rather than a punishment. Most importantly, pay attention to your body during the task. In a position, if anything doesn’t feel quite right, it usually isn’t! There is no “perfect-shaped” stance to strive for, so alter it by easing out of the pose and discovering what feels best for your body.

There will be a gentler, more therapeutic weekly class, so you may always switch courses  during the 30 day yoga challenge. Alternatively, if you’d want to take a different type than what’s scheduled, feel free to do so. It all comes down to turning up on your mat and taking care of yourself, even if it’s just some Savasana or deep breathing.

 

Select a Consistent Time of Day to Practice

For this 30 day yoga challenge, selecting a regular time of day to practise is easier for many people. This lessens decision-making that can keep us from starting and aids in habit formation. 

It can also be beneficial to link a new habit to an existing one, such as brushing your teeth or making coffee in the morning, so that your mind starts to connect your daily practice with an established, well-ingrained routine.

If you find it challenging to practice at the same time every day due to other obligations, try scheduling your practice time a few days in advance. The main goal is to reduce the time you spend thinking and distracting yourself so you can practise yoga daily. Other strategies include marking your calendar for class the night before or setting out your yoga mat, props and attire

Track Your Development During The 30 Day Yoga Challenge

Mark a calendar or a journal entry for each lesson you attend during the 30 day yoga challenge. Write down the name of the class and only mention the aspects of it that you liked, whether it was a tangible “success” or something as basic as “this made me happy.” 

Your decision will be positively reinforced by seeing an (increasing) list of compliments, which will keep you practising. As the challenge continues, you might be amazed at how different you start to feel.
