Weekly Question:  How can you completely, utterly and totally be yourself?

Weekly Intention: Serene Focus

Daily Affirmation: I am…


“You are you. Now isn’t that pleasant.”
– Dr. Seuss

This week’s question is “How… can you completely, utterly and totally be yourself, today?” 

So, let’s start with defining ‘completely, utterly and totally…’


1. Unreservedly, fully, thoroughly. 


1. Absolutely, entirely, completely.


1. Wholly, unconditionally, perfectly.

Let’s continue by defining ‘be yourself…’

be yourself
phrasal verb

1. Act in a natural way; in alignment with your character and instincts.

How… can you be yourself, today?

  • Speak truthfully…
  • Be authentic…
  • Deeply consider your words and actions…
    Is it you?
    Is it authentic?
  • Notice…
    Are you saying something that you think you “should” say?
    Are you doing something that you think you “should” do?
    Are you “shoulding all over” yourself?!
    Stop it! 
  • Know this… People are going to judge you, NO MATTER WHAT!
    People are going to judge you if you DO NOTHING!  There is no escaping judgement. So, be yourself…because what’s the alternative?
  • Breathe.

Ask yourself, “How can I be myself, today?
Then, live from the question and see what unfolds…

How would you act, if you were impervious to other people?”

About The Yoga Book

The Yoga Book

The Yoga Book is a personal yoga diary! It is a book for your thoughts and experiences, after a yoga class. Do you have a favorite posture? Sketch it! Do you have a favorite class or instructor? Take notes! Do you have a creative idea? Write it down! Use it to determine your favorite style of yoga or enhance your practice. The Yoga Book is also perfect for teacher trainings and yoga workshops! Every page has an inspirational quote, space for the date, style of yoga, and instructor’s name. It also has a glossary of classic yogas. Enjoy!

“The idea for The Yoga Book came to me in a yoga class! I saw it clearly in my mind and I needed somewhere to write it down. Also, I had recently met with an Indian medical doctor, who had said “Different styles of yoga effect people differently, so it is important to know which ‘style of yoga’ is right for you.” So, I decided to create a book, where people could journal about their experiences in a yoga class, write about the different postures – how they felt, get inspired, and write about their insights… Sometimes I would come to class with a problem, any problem, and leave with a solution! And when I did, I’d write it down somewhere, so I decided to create The Yoga Book.”
