The Leadership Team has found that the more structure and boundaries they have around time, their calendar and how they get organized, they move more fluidly through their day. The more we create structure in our days, the more we can flow through the day.
Structure vs. Flow
For many of us when we make the switch from a corporate job to working full time as a yogi or Yoga Health Coach we are looking for less structure and more creative time. What we often don’t realize is that creating structure in our day is what allows us that time to be creative. Without structure and routine we are always stuck jumping from task to task that needs our attention and we never get to enjoy those creative moments that really help us get to the next level of teaching and coaching.
Another bonus of structuring your day and getting organized is that when we sit to do one thing – just like in meditation – we will find that time tends to stand still. We end up getting far more accomplished than we ever dreamed possible when we are able to shut out the distractions around us.
