Please put on your own oxygen mask before assisting others

I was chatting to some friends the other night and this came up. The idea that we are so preoccupied with putting others before ourselves. I do it all the time. Go out to meet friends when I’m absolutely knackered and would rather get to bed early. There aren’t enough hours in the day. So we end up putting ourselves down the bottom of the list, we shrug our shoulders and just go with it! It’s crazy. When did we stop being our own top priorities?

My home practice has certainly evolved over the years, much of my strength and flexibility has been cultivated at home-by returning to the mat as regularly as I can. Initially it consisted of short 20 or 30 minute sessions, nowadays it's in the region of 2-3 hours daily. My flexibility has not been a walk in the park and still something I work on tirelessly as Im not naturally flexible. Same goes for strength.
