“If you’re killing time, it’s not murder. It’s suicide.”

Good morning peeps, meditation done.

Quote for the Day:

“If you’re killing time, it’s not murder. It’s suicide.”

Lou Holtz

I have always known the value of time, but just recently I have experienced a few events, that have seen peoples lives changed in an instant, in ways they and I would never of dreamed of or planned for, so this has made me value my time even more highly and come to the conclusion that life is too short and our time is too precious to waste.

I have decided to dedicate every minute of the day to pursuing my career and life goals and I am not going to waste time doing things that are not going to bring me closer to my goals.

There is no time to waste, we are only on this planet for a certain amount of time and before you know it, your time will be up and you will be wondering where the years went and why did I not get to do all the things I wanted to do in my life.

The average lifespan in the UK is 80 years. For men 77.9 years. For women 82 years. There is no time to waste. What are you waiting for?

Start today, right now. You are your own boss, you decide how you spend your time, not anyone else. You cannot afford to waste another year, another week, another day, another hour, another minute, another second.

Now we have established how important your time is. Let’s begin looking at how you spend it. To function efficiently, 97% of the population needs 8 hours sleep a night.

If we have allocated 8 hours a day for sleeping, let’s take a look at what we are doing with the other 16 hours of the day.

Make a note for the next week, the actual time you start and finish work, and how long it takes you to travel to and from work. If you begin work at 9am and finish promptly at 5pm, (I bet you don’t?) that’s another 8 hours gone, and I will make a conservative estimate that it takes at least 1 or 2 hours for you to travel to and from work each day, which leaves you with 6 hours or less a day to spend on you and your family, for eating, relaxation and pleasure.

Those 6 hours are your personal time and doing things for your pleasure and your mental and physical health should be a priority.

I use those 6 hours to do the things I enjoy most, which are yoga, walking my dogs, eating good food, reading, listening to music, socializing with friends and watching sport, dance and detective dramas.

I have practiced yoga and meditation everyday for the last 10 years.

I find the practicing of yoga everyday really helps me in all aspects of my life.

The more I practice the stronger my breathing becomes and the more control of it I have and the calmer I have become.

The better I fuel my body the better I feel both mentally and physically.

The yoga poses and breathing teach me that if I control my breath I can control my mind. The pain and discomfort I feel in the awkward yoga poses, will go away if I breathe and stay calm. This mirrors situations in life which can seem impossible with no way out, but if you stay calm, focused and breathe then your head clears, the situation does not seem as bad as you first thought and you can see a way forward.

Yoga has taught me to focus my mind and not be distracted by outdoor forces and things that I cannot control.

I have also learnt that I cannot do all the poses or asana, but this is not failure, the point of yoga is not to be able to do all the poses, it is the daily process of trying to achieve them that is important. Because as soon as you have mastered a difficult pose, you will come across another one that you will feel is impossible, when you first start, but if you practice every day it will become a little bit easier as you improve every day.

Together with nutrition and sleeping, this is the basis of my Elysium Way Training System.

The Elysium Way enhances and enriches lives allowing you to reach your full potential physically, mentally and spiritually.

And one of the main components of the Elysium Way is practicing yoga.

If you would like to improve your breathing and clear your mind by introducing yoga into your life or to strengthen your daily practice to help you focus, smile more and achieve your goals and live the life of your dreams?
