Mindful Monday

Every start to Sumits hot yoga includes a breathing exercise in which we are to center ourselves and focus on our intention for the class. Whether it be meditation, mindfulness, grace, strength, balance, or any other purpose, it is important to start with intention.

As I mentioned before, I have been in a funk and I think one thing that might help is to be more present and mindful. I tend to always be looking forward or backward but rarely just appreciate the here and now. I would like to center myself every Monday, set my intention, and be present as I go about my week. Here's how I plan to break it down:

Movement
Here is my plan for the week:
Monday: Hot Yoga
Tuesday: Chest/back and HIIT (running intervals)
Wednesday: Hot Yoga
Thursday: Legs/abs and HIIT (body weight exercises)
Friday: Hot Yoga
Saturday: Arms/shoulders and long run-6 miles
Sunday: REST

Munchies
Try a new recipe. I am thinking about this meatball sub made from mushrooms. I am thinking this recipe might be the one to try.

Mantra:
“The present moment is filled with joy and happiness. If you are attentive, you will see it.”
Thích Nhất Hạnh

Is that enough "M" words for you today? What do you do to be more mindful? Do you ever try to live more in the moment?
