Secrets to Self-Discipline - Tapas Niyama
There are 10 Yamas and 10 Niyamas - daily values and practices from ancient Vedic Sanskrit texts that help us reach our full potential in personal, spiritual, and professional growth, and liberate us from mental, spiritual, and physical suffering. This month we are diving deep into our human aspect of self-motivation, self-discipline, and self-regulation.
I look at self-discipline as a lesson that some of us have been exampled during our developmental period, and some of us have not. Regardless of whether we were taught it or not, self-discipline is a noble practice, it is our birthright, the fundamental tool we can use to achieve wellbeing, fully develop our abilities, and share all of our given gifts. The best news of all, self-discipline is a practice we can adapt and implement at any age! If we haven't learned something decades ago, a better way is always possible today.
Listen to MY PODCAST Episode 10 where I talk about the human superpower, discipline (Tapas Niyama), and what motivates me to maintain my commitment to daily selfcare. We will finish this episode with a little breathing and EFT, emotional freedom technique tapping exercise. Discipline is a big part of Yogic philosophy that helps us with our personal, professional, and spiritual growth. There is a pandemic of misinformation and a mismanaged marketing campaign of all the fitness trends, fads, and cults. It is so important to clarify our own vision and work our way to unlearn the limiting beliefs, including the toxic body image focus behind many fitness brands.
