10 Nov How To Choose The Right Type Of Practice For You
Your personal practice – it can be profound for your mind and extremely beneficial for your body. It can boost your health and bring you to a level of deep serenity.
Your personal practice can affect you so deeply, however, you need one single ingredient to make this happen… connection.
The Secret Ingredient
You need to feel connected to experience a practice that compliments who you are and enhances your holistic health. Truly connecting with your practice feels like finding the missing puzzle pieces in your life and becoming fulfilled.
It’s all about connection. It’s about finding the practice, the path, the way of life that suit the true you.
The Most Important Part
Before we delve into which practice is the best fit for certain people, there is some vital knowledge you need to understand first to ensure you generate a great connection with your practice.
The path to choosing successfully doesn’t involve asking a friend, researching the internet or taking a wild guess. The answer is actually a lot closer than you think.
You need to listen inwards. Listen to what your body needs. The answer to what will create a deep connection is found when you learn what your true self requires in order to feel more complete. Focusing more on the pleasure sensations – the positive feedback of your mind and body – will help you identify the type of practice that can do this for you.
Such deep feelings may be a strong feeling to strengthen the body in some way, such as stronger cardio or greater strength. Other internal feedback may require you to stop with the active forms of practice and give your body a break to repair, rebuild and nourish you on many levels.
You need to listen to the stronger feedback of the body and mind to hear this.
