Well, Happy 2016!
(if we decide to believe in dates…)
I have spent three days over the Christmas period (at Salus, Withnell Hall, Chorley) in teaching / discussing / planning but most of all understanding New Year Resolutions and how to make them work. New Year Resolutions are no different from any other resolution and we all know (or should know) that in order to make them last and hence work for us, we need to use our older part of the brain, the limbic system, which is connected with pleasure, instinct, rewards, addiction (!), and sex (!); and that part does not like nor understand reasoning, logic and language.
Hence, it is absolutely pointless to talk us into doing something if that something does not give us in return a pleasure. My quitting smoking in October was not linked to a better health nor more money in my wallet (those are just by-product of the action of quitting) but with the pleasure I personally get from breathing properly and the sensation of pure and utter freedom, which to me is somehow addictive! (= freedom of choice, freedom of thinking, freedom of behaviour, not being dependant from anything nor anyone; basically, being a rebel!* – that was and still is my WHY)
So, I have decided to join a challenge (and see what kind of pleasure I can get out of it…): it is a (free) 30-day Yoga Camp Challenge.

*rebel: in this case, simply being free; and at the same time accepting the consequences and responsibilities of being free; of not being scared of freedom, accepting it and making the most out of it; being in-dependent.
