Hello friends 🙂
Sorry I have been so quiet, I guess I don’t feel the pressure of having a big audience, so whenever I come across a writing blankness (is that a word?), I just stop myself from forcing the production of meaningless articles just for the the sake of keeping posts going.
Not sure whether that’s the best thing to do, in fact, most bloggers point out the need to be regular, and I actually agree. But since this is a hobbie I do to follow a passion and enjoy, rather than to feel under pressure, I am just going by the flow for now… (Yes, the book Affluenza really made me question the reasons behind my actions, and prevented me from following projects for the “wrong” reasons)
Since the original and central idea behind this blog was yoga and I had a lot to say about it at the time, I created many posts on the matter during the first year and a half, but somehow I got stuck once I let all my ideas out (as explained in a previous post Reasons behind the silence).
Now I feel there are other things I would like to explore and talk about, but that might not go in line with the header title of this blog BeLikeYoga, so that clash in focus also blocked me a bit… Should I change the title? Should I not? Should I start from scratch? Should I simply reshape the current blog and let it evolve? (I don’t have an answer for this question yet by the way!)
Beyond my big love for yoga, there is a bigger love for writing, expressing feelings and exploring anything to do with our wellbeing, both mental and physical. Research on happiness, health and life satisfaction is something I read about, think about, and aim to apply to my own life… If doing that comes easy and natural to me, I guess that is the path I should follow, right? Or so they say!
There are a number of drafts gathering dust in here, and a number of books I would like to discuss and talk about. Also, since my review for the book They F*** You Up is the most visited post in the history of this humble blog at present, I think doing more book reviews might not be such as bad/boring idea after all.
Health, nutrition, human relationships, psychology… these are some of my favourite subjects and below, a list of books I would like to eventually talk about in here:
