"Time will pass anyway, you can either spend it creating the life you want or spend it living the life you don’t want. The choice is yours." 

Hi <<First Name>>,

Happy March!

Hope you are doing well and staying healthy! We are soon approaching the one year mark of the initial shut downs and the yoga studio being closed due to the pandemic. If I could go back in time to March 2020, I would tell myself: Please try to relax and enjoy the slower pace of life through all the challenges, because there’s still a very long road ahead. Worrying about things won’t make it easier or speed up the process.

When I was in high school, I took my classes and extracurriculars very seriously and stressed out about things way too much. I cried when I got the first B of my life on my report card, in calculus. I stayed up late to study and write papers for my honors classes, played varsity softball, and was class president. Although I am proud of my work ethic and everything I accomplished, I probably would have still been fine if I had never lost sleep or shed tears over school.

There’s a study from a palliative nurse who reveals that one of the most common regrets of the dying is, “I wish I hadn’t worked so hard.” For me personally, this is a lesson that shows up over and over. Perhaps you can relate.

My wish for everyone, myself included, is that we allow ourselves to move through our days with less stress and more ease. This is no easy feat. We’ve seen and experienced how the pandemic and life events can bring hardship and uncomfortable change. At the same time, we can remember that worrying never really helps, and that it is important to bring joy and light-hearted energy to our days, as best as we can.

We are still keeping things safe, doing classes virtually and outdoors. There are lots of opportunities to practice yoga and stay connected with community:
Take care and stay healthy!

With Love + Gratitude,

<3 Lara
