⚡I've been a mess recently. It might be caused by various things, like the full 🌙 , but I have noticed that my emotions are up & down, I am moody & confused - I even starting to question whether I am on the right path in my life. Yes, the wounds are deep. But I am #healing and the process feels good. THANK YOU🙏 🌌In these "rough" times I sought moral support in my friends, family & the "Yamas and Niyamas" ,( the first two limbs of Pattanjali's eightfold path of yoga; a guide to finding purpose, fulfilment, peace & liberation in our lives). 🙋The Yamas and Niyamas are ethical guidelines that aim at one's moral, living in integrity with the environment & recommendations of certain habits for spiritual existence & a healthy, long living. There are 5 yamas and 5 niyamas. 👴The great sage Pattanjali called the yamas "great vows". These first five rules are social observances (focused on our behaviour & attitude towards our environment, other people) , which when followed, are powerfully transformative - stabilising and bringing clarity to the mind of the practitioner. 👤The niyamas on the other hand are "internal disciplines" , focused on types of qualities & attitude one should hold in their day to day lives & one's practice in order to progress on the path of yoga. 👍I like these 10 guidelines, cause they are real. Basically, they point to the things that keep us in line with our true-selves 👉 we always know when we are doing something "wrong"; & help us improve ourselves by bringing discipline into our lives, so that our spirits can grow. 🍃As reflecting upon the yamas & niyamas, has brought me a lot of comfort and a new-found sense of stability in these stormy times, I have been inspired to share my take on them with you guys. Another observation I recently have made is that a lot of people around me are also experiencing some sort of "depression". 💙I hope all of you affected know you are not alone. Over the course of the next weeks I would like to share my thoughts on the first two libs of #yoga, one by one. I will speak from my ♥ & hope the message finds your ♥ & help you live happily and in integrity - whatever the circumstances.

So I’m back from Convention, maybe we ran into each other (or maybe we didn’t)... but either way, I felt in the mood to share 7 things you probably don’t know about me yet just in case you’re curious….⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👉🏼I’m the oldest child in my family and yes, I’ve read the Birth Order book!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👉🏼If I wake up in the middle of the night I have to brush my teeth.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👉🏼I hate when I have unopened emails. I like to see my inbox showing “0”.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👉🏼When I stopped eating meat, dairy and sugars I actually gained weight (which was a good thing!)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👉🏼I don’t like my nails painted. I like a nice clear coat. I’m fine with my toenails painted.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👉🏼I’ve visited every continent on this beautiful earth and my favorite place to visit is somewhere with a beach. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👉🏼I’m a total book nerd. I’ve read close to 30 books this year.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I love this pic of Me, Wes and Madeline. 💚Right before this pic was taken Madeleine was having a complete meltdown about getting her picture taken. Wouldn’t change her shirt, comb her hair, nothing! But look, she’s smiling like an old pro. #keepingitreal #realinstagram⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ XO,⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Hayley⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . #hayleyhobson #wholeyou #myfamily❤️ #mon#mondayintroions #family #lovemylife #momtreprenuer #mondayintro #familyphotography #tweengirl #mywholeheart #mondaymood
