“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.” ― Buddha
Feeling inadequate or that you’re coming up short from time to time is normal. But constantly engaging in negative self-talk and giving your all to others while neglecting your own well-being, can cripple you in every area of your life.
If you’ve been hard on yourself lately, this weekend we challenge you to try and focus on your positive qualities, your admirable traits and your strengths. After all, how can we really love and make others happy when we find it hard to love ourselves? When we learn to love and value ourselves, we become full of love to share with others. This may not be easy, but this weekend, look yourself in the mirror and say “I love you.”

Whether it be Ashtanga, Vinyasa Flow or Yin, most of us have our favorite style of yoga – the one that we practice almost every time we step onto our mat. So this weekend we challenge you to try a different style. If you usually practice Kundalini, give Hatha a try or if you usually flow, give Yin a whirl!

A couple of weeks ago, Stephanie Snyder reminded us to stay centered. With all of the external stimulus going on around us, it is so easy to get distracted, so most of us can probably benefit from coming back to center a little more. So this weekend, if you find yourself distracted or scattered, take a deep breath, get your focus back and recenter yourself.

“You will never find time for anything. If you want time you must make it.” - Charles Buxton
A couple of weeks ago, Jo Tastula reminded us how important it is to make time for ourselves. We tend to really over-extend ourselves as we give to everyone and everything around us – and that’s great when we have energy coming in, to then expend energy outwards. But if we don’t have anything coming in, we can really start to deplete ourselves and what good are we to anyone if we are completely depleted?!!
So this weekend we challenge you to really make some time for yourself. You’ll be surprised to see the positive effect it will have on your life and your relationships.

“Raise your words, not your voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.” ― Rumi
We’ve all had heated discussions or arguments where voices were raised or have had moments where we yell at our spouse, a family member or our kid. But if you look back at those times, did the yelling actually accomplish anything? Do you think you got your point across to the other person? Were you able to get the result you were looking for? From our experience, we’re going to guess that the answer is no. All you do when you raise your voice is get the other person to stop listening to you. Everything you say from the “raised voice point” or the “yelling point” forward is just falling upon deaf ears.
So this weekend, if you really want someone to “hear” you, we challenge you to remember that it’s your words (and tone) that are effective and have meaning, not how loud you say them.

Are the rising temperatures making you a little crazy? When the summer weather is at its peak (like right now), it can cause some serious wear and tear on the body and mind. So if you’re having trouble keeping it together in this heat, we challenge you to focus on pranayama and meditation this weekend. Breath work, when practiced correctly, will cool the body from the inside out and meditating will keep your mind relaxed so you can beat the heat without losing your cool!

Last week, Darren Rhodes explained that in order to have a successful yoga practice, we need to stay true to our aim and keep practicing. There are going to be things in our lives that come up (on that mat and off) that could give us reasons to abandon our practice, so this weekend we challenge you to keep going, keep pushing, even in those times when you think you can’t.

“When I wake up in the morning, I know that it’s going to be the best day of my life. I never think about what I can’t do. Make sure positive thoughts are the first ones you think in the morning.” – Tao Porchon-Lynch
Your mind is the most powerful tool that you have. It can either build you up or tear you down. How you think affects everything you do, so this weekend we challenge you to try and think positive!
Easier said than done, right? We’re not saying that you should see the world through rose colored glasses or that you should stick your head in the sand and ignore life’s unpleasant situations, that’s not realistic. Instead, try and approach each day, each situation in a more positive and productive way. Once you do this, you will start to feel a sense of hopefulness and confidence that is required to be successful and happy in all areas of your life.

“The Good Fight is the one that we fight in the name of our dreams.” - Paulo Coelho, The Pilgrimage
This weekend and always, we challenge you to never stop dreaming. Even through our toughest moments, when it seems like all is lost, never lose sight of your dreams and goals. Keep going, keep persisting, keep believing, keep fighting The Good Fight.
