This is a guest post from Lifestyle Chiropractic patient Joshua Altman.
Why do I constantly take pictures and videos of myself performing yoga poses and transitions? Even though I am not motivated to document myself every day, I still find it to be an important part of my personal development.
Here are my reasons why:
1. I spend a minimum of six hours on my physical yoga practice every week. This spread out over four years is a lot of practicing.
2. The more I practice the more I see how pictures help show my progress. They show the simple and drastic changes I’ve made in my body as I continue to put in constant hours of practice.
3. Although I prefer to take videos so I can actually see my movements, pictures offer up a different kind of progression. These pictures also help motivate me to make sure I stay consistent with my yoga practice.
4. Lastly, I believe part of the reason for taking pictures and videos is that when I am older and no longer able to do some of these things, I want to be able to look back and see what I was able to accomplish.
How are you documenting improvements to your health and wellness?
