It has been way too long since I wrote about cool yoga music or a song that lifts me up, inspires, and makes it irresistible to do a little dance on my yoga mat. So, it is with extreme joy that I announce my newest yoga theme song, “Best Day of My Life” by American Authors.
Replace my usual woo-hoo with a wo-o-o-o—oh and add in some talk about dreams so big and never looking back, and I’m thinking this song may just have been tailor written for me.
This last year, I spoke often in my yoga classes about the inspiration of one of my role models, yogini goddess and 96-year-young Tao Porchon-Lynch, who starts off each and every day by saying to herself, “Today is going to be the best day of my life, and nothing is impossible.” I decided to pick up her morning ritual; each day before my feet hit the ground, I repeat the mantra, “Today is going to be the best day of my life!” I say it, I believe it, and I live it every day. And now I have a musical soundtrack to back it up! That’s Tao Porcho- Lynch and me in the photo above at the New York Yoga Journal Conference in 2012.
Never gonna look back
Never gonna give up
No limits, just epiphanies
Everything is looking up, everyone get up!
This is going to be the best day of my life!
I’m definitely going to put this song into a yoga class playlist to serve as a reminder to wake up every morning full of gratitude and joy with the belief that each and every day can be the best day of your life, if you believe it. This mantra has absolutely been a game-changer for me. Sing it with me: woo-woo-o-o-o-oh, this is going to be the best day of my life!
