Are you a YES person?

Are you someone who embraces life with enthusiasm, openness, and a spirit of adventure? In yoga, we often talk about finding balance, cultivating mindfulness, and connecting with our true selves on the mat. But what about applying these principles off the mat? Yoga teaches us to embrace growth and transformation with grace. When we adopt a YES mindset, we welcome change and evolution, both physically and spiritually. Each practice becomes an opportunity to expand our awareness and embrace new possibilities.

When was the last time you said no, when you could have said yes? That moment when you said no straight away because it was the safe answer, or it was less embarrassing, or easier, or required less energy. But what could have happened if you’d said yes? Saying yes, could translate into meeting a new friend, trying a new food, getting new job opportunities, discovering new places. It's a way of stepping into the unknown, it's about being open and vulnerable, with a sense of bravery and content when things don't go according to plan. Saying yes, can give you more moments lived, experiences and willingness to see what happens.

Being a YES person doesn't mean saying yes to everything. It's about setting healthy boundaries and aligning with what truly resonates with our values and intentions. In yoga, this translates to honouring our bodies' needs and respecting our limits.

Life is about new things, different things, and counterintuitively, getting out of your comfort zone. So, here a few signs you're already a YES Person:

  • You approach challenges with optimism and a problem-solving mindset.

  • You're eager to try new activities, hobbies, or adventures.

  • You enjoy meeting new people and learning from different perspectives.

  • You see setbacks as temporary obstacles, not roadblocks.

  • You believe in your ability to adapt and thrive in new situations.

But most importantly, here are a few tips to embrace your inner YES person:

1.     Cultivate Positivity: Start each day with a positive mindset. Focus on what you're grateful for and set intentions to embrace opportunities with openness.

2.     Challenge Your Comfort Zone: Identify areas where you tend to hold back and challenge yourself to say yes more often. Whether it's trying a new activity or speaking up in meetings, take small steps outside your comfort zone.

3.     Listen to Your Intuition: Trust your instincts when deciding whether to say yes or no. Tune into what truly excites and aligns with your values.

4.     Celebrate Your Wins: Acknowledge and celebrate your YES moments. Reflect on how each experience contributes to your personal growth and happiness.

In a moment when it's easy to say no, make it a practice to say yes! Every opportunity you say yes when you could have said no, leads you on a new journey of self-discovery

Yes, to running with you after work,

Yes, I will lead that meeting,

Yes, let's have dinner together,

Yes, let's go shopping

Yes, let's learn to cook together

Let's say YES to new adventures, YES to growth and learning, and YES to creating a life filled with purpose and fulfilment!

Cheers to being a YES person and embracing all that life has to offer!

With excitement and positivity
