Observation – Svadayaya

It’s good to get to know ourselves and understand a little more about our habits. We do this through observation. For 1 week (or 2 if you can) try to record what you do each day

  • what time you get up
  • how you slept
  • what you eat and drink
  • how you filled your day
  • what exercise you took
  • how you felt
  • what time you went to bed

You can record this in a journal, diary or on sheets of paper – I’ve done a download for you. It can be a revealing exercise.

The trick is to be truthful to yourself and not to judge. This develops our minds to be detached and is something we strive for in yoga (it’s very hard to do). But remember we are not our behaviours. Treat yourself with the kindness you deserve – just try to observe yourself and learn.

Be curious, not judgmental.
