“Yoga is the artwork of awareness on the canvas of body, mind, and soul.” - Amit Ray
Are you a freelancer like me? Do you get up in the morning and the first thing that comes to your mind is that endless list of clients you need to handle right from the get go? And do you lie in the bed awake, mentally checking your daily to-do list, worrying that something slipped your mind? I used to do that. My balance was so out of whack that most dreams I could recall in the morning featured missed deadlines and unsatisfied clients.
I was not only mentally exhausted and preoccupied but my frantic lifestyle that catered exclusively to my career started to hurt my overall health. Don’t get me wrong, I love what I do; I really do. There came a point, however, in my life when I couldn’t continue doing it the same way I’ve been doing it in the past. My back was killing me, my vision was blurry, and I couldn’t get centered even when I put real effort into doing it.
