When we don't feel OK - it's OK
A big thing in mindfulness and yoga is understanding that it's OK not to feel OK.We are not going to feel great all the time. There are a lot of messages out there about happiness and positivity, and sometimes it seems as though this is something we should be feeling, or that it is something to strive for.Instead, embrace not feeling OK. Not feeling OK is a sign that you need to look at what's going on for you. Not feeling OK is a signal that you need to give yourself some real TLC.
Continuing with the idea of Not Being OK, there are several things which can hinder us from feeling alright.Many of these are in the mind, and actually have very little to do with our external circumstances. In fact, often outside life can be going perfectly well, but we still feel 'not-OK'Yoga and mindfulness are about building awareness of ourselves so we can start to notice what is really going on for us - so we can then make changes if we are able to.
