How to find time between my two jobs, friends, family and free time depends entirely on my own will and my time management.In addition to blogging, I have another job and a private environment with a boyfriend, family, and friends. I love to spend time with them but, I also need time to myself. In the past, this need for one’s own time was not as big as it is today. I like to be alone with myself. Even though it is only 15 minutes, I live this time very consciously. This awareness has developed strongly with me, especially through meditating and yoga – which is also the secret of my work life balance.
About 4 years ago I started to meditate and with yoga. It was not always easy in the beginning. Especially when it comes to switching off thinking while meditation. And of course, just when you know you should not think, you do it even more. My first experiences in a group meditation, I did in Japan. It was only an hour, but the learning effect was huge. Two years later, I spent a week in a monastery in France. I lived with monks and sisters and took part in their everyday life. These experiences have been very drastic in my meditative career (if I can call it like that: D). In a positive way, of course. I have learned a lot and can apply many things from it.
The most important thing for me was that I was allowed to learn – do not be upset when you thinking while meditation. Allow the thoughts, say goodbye again and focus on the breathing. Sometimes what it helps, to count from 1 to 5, so the focus is on counting and on yourself. Today, meditating and yoga are parts of my morning ritual. Preferably in nature.
Next, to my outfit with nike leggings and a basic top, it also includes a comfortable yoga mat. The mat I have from Studio Fayo, a beautiful yoga studio in the urban Tribschenquartier in Lucerne. In addition to yoga classes, they also offer various workshops and individual events. Before or after the lesson, there is the possibility to spend some calm moments at the tea bar and to enjoy the beautiful atmosphere in this stylish studio. If there is it too cold or to wet outside, Studio Fayo is the perfect alternative for doing yoga or meditation.
If you also need some inspiration for your sports outfit or other gadgets, I have created a list for you. Have fun my lovelies.
