Discipline. That word probably sparks a reaction in your gut. You might be taken back to the 10 or 16 year old you. You might think of goals met because you enforced it. The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines discipline as "control gained by enforcing obedience or order; orderly prescribed conduct or pattern of behavior; self-control." The second definition is "punishment." Commitment Commitment is defined as a promise to do or give something or an agreement or pledge to do something in the future. This is a word I've been pondering in my own life. For almost 10 months I've had the commitment to get up and practice my morning yoga, pranayama and meditation practice. Not all mornings were 35 minutes (my current goal) but at least 10 minutes of tuning in before I go out into the world.
