Saucha. Something I’ve been spending a lot of my focus on lately. If this word is new to you, let me explain. There are eight limbs of yoga and they all connect to help guide a yogi (or yogini) along their path. The second limb, the Niyamas, along with the Yamas, are a set of tools designed to enhance the yoga experience.
Saucha is Niyama that refers to purity, ordiliness, clarity, and organization.
Since I’m spending a lot of time at my desk these days, I thought I would spruce up the place. I wanted a space that was inspiring to my work. A clean and colorful workspace all my own. So that’s exactly what I did.
My yoga mats are closeby to remind me to take a break should I become overwhelmed. And Marc, my elephant deskmate gives me company.
My hopes and dreams are displayed openly to motivate me to always give my best. On Sunday, I write out a list of priorities for the week and post it above my desk. My mental space fills a lot less cluttered and a result, I feel lighter.
And basically everything else is meant to make this space as enjoyable as possibly. So I added splashes of color everywhere, fresh flowers and plants and all the office supplies tucked away in my six-drawer filing chest.
