Hot yoga and spending more mindfully (#002)

Today, I started off the day with something totally unexpected: Hot Yoga + Striving to keep my lifestyle the same even with an increase of salary.

June 5th 2022.

Today, I started off the day with something totally unexpected: Hot Yoga.

It was my first time and I enjoyed it a lot.

The class was only an hour long, but it felt like 3 hours. It was a good reality check on how fit I actually am and how much fitter I can become.

Beyond the physical aspect of the class, there was also the added benefit of being 100% present for an hour. I did not have a choice if I wanted to complete the class properly.

I will try to find a way to integrate hot yoga in my fitness schedule even though it is already quite packed.

Thought of the day: Striving to keep my lifestyle the same even with an increase of salary.

There's a little je-ne-sais-quoi that's very appealing to me about restraining oneself even when you don't have to.

I've been spending a bit more than I should recently and I was wondering if my salary increases, would my spending follow it. As of right now, I have to say yes because that's exactly what's happening.

It made me realize that I should start being more mindful of how I spend my money. Not because I can't afford it, but simply to be more intentional about my purchases and ask myself if I truly need something.

A man is free not when he can have everything he wants, but when he wants nothing even when he can have everything.

Or that's what I'd like to think at least.
