Gaining freedom through a routine: does that seem completely counter-intuitive to you? I myself believed for a long time that I was freer by avoiding at all costs to impose me a routine. I gave way to my desires of the moment, which inevitably led me to procrastinate and focus on immediate pleasures. How many times have I found myself binge watching episodes of my current series without seeing the time flying, instead of doing my workout. Do you relate?
Making my yoga session a habit allowed me to no longer have to think about it. It even became my identity. So it freed me up mental space to do other things, things that are important to me. As one result, it allowed me to take action to take care of the environment.
