The Yoga of Watching the Presidential Debates

Fri, 12 Oct 2012 02:23:00 +0000

One should practice a lot of deep breathing (pranayama) to get through a presidential debate.

Sitting in Sukasana (crossed legs) can help focus one's mindframe while listening to a debate.

The debates, as with poses like Navasana and Warrior II, are painful sometimes, but necessary.

We can fall over and hurt ourselves, while watching, so be careful.

Sometimes there will be an involuntary yelp, or sigh of relief, when President Obama or VP Joe Biden fight back and tell it like it is.

The next day, we all feel sore.

Trying to Find (yogic) Inspiration

Inspiration is what keeps us coming back all sorts of practices.

I read somewhere that in order to build a habit, a person needs do something for 30 days. But it's not just about doing it; you need to feel good, satisfied, and happier at the end of that something (for 30 days). That feeling of joy is inspiration for the next time.

If you are trying to build a habit of practicing yoga, practice so that you feel good afterward, don't drive yourself nuts!

It would be lovely to remember your practice as a moment when the sun came through the clouds and made everything bright.

I am going to try that.

That just about says it all!
