Hence, it may be the season to be jolly, but it’s also a time when it’s all too easy to pack on the pounds along with the cheer.

If quantity of time on your mat is an issue, then honor the time you do have by increasing the quality of your time on your mat. A hectic life can quickly spiral out of control unless your mind is given moments of pause. When it becomes necessary to “squeeze in” your practice time, condense the amount of time you spend in your poses but heighten the focus of your awareness into a laser-like intensity. Make every moment of your practice count, and you will feel that you have done enough.
