When you think you don't have time for your yoga practice* because you're too busy... think "beer tray"!! (* or no time for meditation or even a run or something you do for yourself) Read on to get what I'm on about.

Saying you don't have time is like going to a bar, getting a round of 8 pints, carrying those pints. A bartender goes up to you saying "can I give you a beer tray to help with that?" and you say "I couldn't possibly take the beer tray my hands are too full"
Of course we can tell that's silly. The beer tray helps you carry all the pints and makes it possible.
Doing your meditation/yoga/thing for yourself, isn't an extra thing to make you busier, it's the thing to make you able to cope with the busy crazy stuff.
My very good friend told me this one yesterday which she uses to make sure she does her meditation practice. I love it! It is so apt for yoga practice or anything that you would do to make yourself have time for yourself. So I will be thinking "beer tray, beer tray, beer tray" to myself from now on... very useful analogy.
So I thought I'd share!
