Yoga for the entrepreneur

I have just arrived home from my holiday, it wasn’t the best dietwise but it was good for relaxation and to push me to a new start. Honestly, I think, I have a burnout syndrome.

I have a main job. And I have a side job. Then I decided to work on my online business because I want to get rid of my main job. The result? Succes? Oh, no, not at all. Rather feeling overwhelmed, overworked, over everything. Adrenal fatigue and long-forgotten illnesses rising (insulin resistance, low-thyroid, hyperbloating). Not a good thing.

My me-time was the last thing I ever thought of… Right before leaving for Italy, I went to discuss my health issues with somebody and she shared a very eye-opening thought: Have you ever thought about that you have so many illnesses nowadays because your body realised that it’s the only time you take care of it?

Have you ever thought about that you have so many illnesses nowadays because your body realised that it’s the only time you take care of it?

And yes. She is right. Totally right. I don’t even have time (or desire) to my hobby. Which is not complicated, it’s just collecting cookbooks. Not very time-consuming. I always suggest everyone to go to a massage therapist but when was the last time I visited one? When was the last time I was in a group fitness class just for fun? Why haven’t I met my friends for weeks? Why am I too tired to go out?

Now is the time for the change. If my health is not okay, I cannot make my business work either. If I cannot make my business work, I will never be able to get rid of my main job and I will float in the stage of burnout.

I started my journey with diet and mental support, now I want to take my diet to the second level and do a full month of 100% macrobiotic diet with healing teas and herbs and everything. I also feel that my current workouts are not for me now. Somehow I don’t enjoy the workouts I usually do, they don’t energize me so I decided to do 30-dayay yoga challenge. My own challenge, I will follow youtube videos from different instructors. Nothing serious, but a commitment to myself (but I’m happy if someone joins me and we can motivate each other).

That’s me in Italy ❤ sunset, summertime, happiness 🙂

 

I usually have two 60-70 minutes long workout (dumbells, kettlebell, TRX, bodyweight training) and a Pilates class in a week but now, I want to do yoga every day. Nothing serious, just something that suits my awfully hectic entrepreneur lifestyle. I will have two longer yoga sessions and 10-15-20 minutes yoga on the other 5 days of the week. I hope it will help calm me down or at least, the change of my routine will start a change in my life. Now I feel I’m BORED with my job, my workouts, my food. Everything. And I hate that I don’t have time for the job I want to spend more time on, I don’t have time (and patience for shopping) to create food I like. I need a change.

Baby steps.

I won’t go for the spiritual part of yoga, that would be too harsh of a change. Vinyasa yoga, power yoga, yoga focusing on body parts, yoga for digestion. Yes, maybe these.

Yoga every day.

I promise myself that I will do yoga every day.

EVERY DAY.

As an ease, today I did a power yoga session, it was just 30 minutes, it wasn’t the best workout of my life, it was too fast for a yoga, in my opinion. I’m still searching for a good yoga workout. Any recommendations?
