We must find balance. When our lives become unmanageable, it's usually ourselves or our writing which ends up getting the short end of the stick. Balance is the key.
In yoga, balance is vital. It's the same for the writer's life.
Tree Pose (Vrksasana)
|Tree Pose 1|
Bring palms together in front of your heart.
|Tree Pose 2|
Now find a focal point in front of you and balance. Try to hold the position for 30 seconds to one minute. Switch legs. You may feel a slight burn in your anchor leg's calf area. Yes, this is normal. You're strengthening your thighs, calves, ankles, and spine. :)

(Sorry for not smiling.
I was in deep thought!)
Practice Tree Pose once a day. Remember to breathe deeply while in posture. Elongate the spine. Point the crown of the head towards to sky. Enjoy the quiet moment. Find your inner balance.
Imagine your writing life is like your Tree Pose. All the areas need balance. Too much social media will result in too much play, not enough work. Too much butt-in-chair may result in complete burn out. The same goes for our Tree Pose. If we lean too far forward, backward, or to either side, it's likely we'll tumble out of posture.
Balance. Be the tree.
Hope all of your writerly projects are coming along this month. Have a fabulous week, Wipsters!
