“Do what feels good to you today.”
The exact wording can vary, but it’s something often said in yoga classes. Basically, it means go as far as your body wants you to today. Maybe it’s not as far as the person next to you, or even as far as you went yesterday, but it feels right to you today.
It’s also a little mantra I like to carry with me, and apply beyond yoga. Sometimes it feels right to skip the complicated hair styling in favor of a few extra minutes of sleep. Sometimes I need to turn off the “Outsourced” and go to bed a little earlier. Sometimes I need to call a friend, or read a book or just give in to that cupcake craving already.
You get the idea. Now go forth and be nice to you.
