Happy Rituals become Habitual (HRBH) – How Do I Infuse My Mini Yoga Pause in any Daily Activities?
It might be at the kitchen counter, in the park with kids or perhaps in the office to take a moment (literally) and make some space to reset or rest our body.
Our body is not made to be static for long periods in any position, or to keep up all day with countless obligations. We think we will miss something or not to accomplish or achieve enough things during the day if we pause. Reasons or excuses to feel overwhelmed, tired, stiff, low energy are usually unconscious. If we become aware of the rhythm of day and pause more often even for short break it can help us a lot. That is why Mini Yoga Pauses help create a mindful break to nourish our body. For that reason I call Mini Yoga Pauses “Happy Rituals” and by doing them several times a day they do become “Habitual”.
HRBH encourage us to infuse regular short pauses into different daily activities to feel the benefits of it instantly. There are always reasons or excuses not to pause through the day, aren’t they? But it is our awareness to decide and bring short pauses into our day regularly.
Yet every day at different times we can be in a different mood. More active and energized sometimes. More reflective and relaxed other times. That is why Happy Rituals become Habitual (HRBH) has three different mood “settings” and each pose has been specifically created to nurture our beautiful body.
Dynamic poses: Dynamic flows for an energetic glow. This cycle of poses flows from one movement to another. They are open and expansive movements that awaken our whole body in an enthusiastic way. They are active, rhythmic movements that through a repetitive flow warm up our body and promote deeper and faster breathing.
Stimulative poses: Gentle stimulation for better motivation. These poses aim to increase alertness and vital energy in a more gentle way than Dynamic Poses. The movements are slower and nurture our whole body through their focus on specific parts of the body.
Relaxed poses: Relaxing the body and mind makes peace easy to find. These poses can help us to feel more grounded and calm during short periods of rest and guide us to surrender. By yielding into the pose, these postures promote stillness and balance through deep, slow, soft breathing.
HRBH guides us and reminds us how easy it is to create a mindful short break, and give ourselves a chance to rest and reset with yoga poses or movements, to relieve or minimise highly static or sedentary positions.
