Peaceful Weight Loss in November

A quick Thanksgiving note…

No one has ever gained ten pounds at Thanksgiving dinner.
Enjoy yourself.
Eat what you are drawn to.
Take breaths between courses so that you remember to enjoy the
delights before you.
Don’t eat anything you don’t want.
Eat everything you do want.

If you are with others take a moment to look into the faces of those
around you.
Find your breath and feel the joy of simply breathing.

Let go of the past and enjoy this day.
Find awareness of the breath and experience the present moment.
From this centered place direct your mind to what you are grateful
Enjoy this comfortable state for the entire day.
This is our yoga practice for Thanksgiving.

may all beings everywhere be peaceful and happy
