Rule of 2

Any is always better than none. 5 minutes of yoga is excellent.

I do yoga most days.

Keeping in mind what I want to avoid can work better. Instead of saying to myself that I will do yoga five days this week, I say:

  • I don’t skip 2 days in a row
  • I don’t skip more than 2 days in a week

Did I do yoga yesterday? No: then I’ll do it today. Did I already skip yoga this week? I won’t skip more.

Yoga works by repetition. Some today. Some tomorrow. Some the day after.

Doing a few minutes of yoga today will have more benefit than adding those minutes to a longer session tomorrow.
