To post or not to post?? It's a very controversial topic in the yoga world.
Lately, my boyfriend has been telling me I'm spending way too much time on my phone. It's true - guilty! It's the first thing I do when I wake up in the morning and the last thing I do before going to bed at night. I go in and out of times of doing this and times of barely looking at my phone at all. At the moment, it's an unhealthy habit I'm yet to break 😬
Throughout the past few years I've been having a love / hate relationship with posting on social media. There are times when I'm all about it, marketing myself as a yoga teacher; and then there are times when I feel like it's just a big ego trip, that totally goes against living a yogic lifestyle.
Recently, I've had a change in perspective of how I look at posting on social media. I've been viewing the posts as more of a creative outlet to spread awareness on things I am passionate about, topics that are (hopefully) inspiring and have a positive influence on the lives of others.
But don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that I have abolished my ego. It's still very present. I still catch myself getting caught up on how many likes, followers/unfollowers I have. Very un-"yogi" of me, I know. But it's the truth.. I'm still undecided of whether to post or not to post; and I'll probably continue going in and out of phases of posting regularly to rarely posting. I believe as long as we are mindful of what we are doing and the intention comes from the heart not the ego. We can check back in with ourselves when we're getting to caught up in the game.. Something I'll still ponder on, but anyway, how do you feel about this subject?? I would love to hear your thoughts 💭
