Choosing a suitable career for yourself is a difficult task, mainly because so much depends on a single decision. For many people, it’s difficult to find where their interests lie and then determine if that can make for a stable career.
Of course, we all would wish for jobs that revolve around our passion. Waking up every day in the morning with the satisfaction of doing something that you love is such a liberating feeling. Plus, you get paid for it… well, a girl can dream!
When the time came, and I had to take a plunge, I wasn’t sure of what I wanted. I was considering getting myself enrolled in a mass communication program at a distinguished college and that I did. I also became a news anchor for some time.
Let me mention here that I had always been a freak for fitness. During my childhood and teens, there was a phase when I had multiple health issues. I had met with an accident which had severely hurt my head. Also, I had multiple cysts which got me worried and I began searching for exercises that would help me get back in shape.
I devised a workout regime for myself, cut down calories and kept my distance from junk; the final results were astounding. It was then that people began hinting how I would make a great fitness coach. They started coming to me for advice, and I realized how much I loved doing that. I passionately learned Yoga exercises and kept trying them myself. Yes, there were pains, aches, and sprains along the way, but I loved everything about the journey.
It got me thinking that why shouldn’t I pursue a career in fitness. I finally had a goal in mind, and it was to become a Yoga fitness trainer. But wait!
I embarked on the search for a suitable degree program or certification. I was able to find one in Rishikesh as per my needs, and that was it, it felt like I had achieved what I desired. Once I became mindful, I understood the actual benefits of yoga. At the end of each practice, I would feel my heart, mind, and soul at peace. I became positive and much more accepting of myself. But the best part was that it improved not only my mental health but also my physical health.
I realized that there is so much chaos all around us that we all forget to silence the distractions and focus. Mindfulness and yoga together had changed my perspective on life; I wanted more people to benefit from it, so I decided to start teaching mindful yoga.
I want to provide people a place where they can connect with their inner selves and learn to be compassionate towards others and also themselves. With each passing day, when I observe people, I notice the chaos keeps on increasing. Life has become stressful; there are bills to worry about, education, work, and growing health problems.
Amidst all the mayhem, the yoga lifestyle can help us find happiness and peace while improving our immunity and detoxifying the body. I wish someday I can share my knowledge and experience in a studio of my own where more people can benefit from it. Until that happens, I will use the power of words to convey the message.
