Meditation and Yoga Chart for Inspiration

It has been a while since I last posted.  In that time, I studied meditation techniques and learned a good bit just by reading the recommended books and by doing the homework.  The surprising thing was that I got more out of doing the homework than I got out of the class.  I guess I should have done my homework with more attention and more often in school, all those years.

The homework was just a chart that goes on the wall with about six months' worth of squares to fill in.  Each day is a square and each square gets its date written in at the beginning of the week.  Each day that I do yoga, I get a "Y" and each day that I meditate, I get an "M".  If I do neither, then the date goes in the block, but the block is blank. 

I find myself very motivated to fill those blocks in.  I have been keeping track for five weeks and I just started the sixth week.  I find myself getting more and more Y's and M's.  And, as a result, my yoga practice has really improved.  I was able to transition from crow pose into tripod headstand for the second time ever last week.  

I have also been becoming more aware of all my habits, since my mind is a bit clearer from all the yoga and meditation.  I have studied how much money I spend on coffee, among other things, and switched to instant packs instead of Starbucks.  I also find myself drinking green tea instead. 

Little things becoming habits turns habits into a good life.  I thought I would get a lot out of that weekend.  But instead, I got a lot out of one sheet of the homework.
