Hi Yogis, welcome. I want to give you five tips that are going to set you up for success for this challenge as we move from the headspace into the heart. The first one, commit to yourself. Really set the intention that you're going to show up each day for this challenge. And if you need some help, invite a friend. It's always better to do a challenge with somebody else or just let them know that you're doing the challenge so that they can check in with you. Number two, make a date with yourself. Don't stand yourself up, right? Make a date and then make sure to follow through each day coming back to the mat as we bring that attention to, you know, really loving and cherishing self. It's the highest expression of love. When we bring it here to the our heart space and we're really kind and loving to ourself, we're going to be able to share it with our friends. So make a date with yourself. Show up every day. Number three, create the space for your practice. Create the space for your date. Make it a nice space, something that feels good. You want to go back and practice every day. So maybe it's lighting a candle. Maybe it's incense. Maybe it's moving clutter. Maybe it's having a designated space that's just for you that your family knows about. This is my time on my mat for my day with myself. I'm going to be a kinder, loving person for you. So we're all work together. So create the space. Number four, tracking the heart and notice what's happening on and off the mat. And it might be useful to have a journal or just write some notes, but it's really nice to see in hindsight where you've been, what your experience is. And notice, you know, as you go through this challenge, some of the things that are kind of moving, shifting, how you're feeling, are the waters of the heart flowing easier, giving, more loving, more receiving. So start to take a little journal opportunity or do some notes or go back and share it with a friend or even share it with us on the forum. We'd love to hear from you. Number five, really easy, but the hardest one because we forget about this. Be kind to yourself. I know it's a challenge and challenges are supposed to be hard, but this is a challenge of the heart. And this is where we go back into being kind, compassionate, patient, all these loving, virtuous qualities that we want to invite in. Start it every day before you get on your mat. I'm going to be kind to myself. I'm so lucky to be on this journey. Be kind to yourself. And that kindness is going to filter out. It's going to move out from your heart and everyone else is going to see it, feel it and receive it. Five tips for your success. So excited to go on this journey with you. I'll see you on the mat. Day one.
