After working on my taxes for most of the day, I went to a yoga class with Teresa at Thrive in the evening. It was a low-key class, ending with restorative poses and candlelight. The room was chilly because there was a problem with the heating and no chance for repair on the weekend, but I built up some body heat fairly quickly. Halfway through the session, I realize that I had been sabotaging my own productivity, physical well-being and mental stamina by putting off yoga classes because I had “more important things to do” and shortchanged my practice. I trick myself into thinking that I have to concentrate on a top priority, but not necessarily investing all my time and energy in that task. There’s a diminishing return on my investment.
