Consistent efforts over sudden rush

 When we work hard and achieve something, it feels more special. For every skill we intend to master, there is a Mount Everest / Kanchenchunga / Annapurna equivalent to reach.

A few months back, I wrote about how making Vadai is like Mount Everest in cooking for me🙂

There are quite a few mountains in my asana practice journey as well. The Mount Everest is indeed Shirsasana, which I hope to reach someday!

Shalabasana is one of my favorite asanas. I remember I was struggling with this pose in 2016 and on one September morning, I finally was able to do it.

I also noticed over the years that whenever I go out of practice for a while or lose my strength/flexibility, I struggle to do this asana. So I use this asana as one of the benchmarks to measure my physical strength.

Strength, stamina, and flexibility can be gained with consistent practice, but it is also easier to lose them when our routines get derailed.

Consistency will help us to sustain the benefits gained for a long time.

Pushing ourselves too much on one day and then feeling aches and pains for the rest of the week isn't beneficial.

When we listen to our body's present boundaries and limitations and align our physical workouts accordingly, the body's ability gradually improves and expands.

Choose time, patience, and consistency all the time!
