The rule of three is a principle that suggests a trio of events or characters is more humorous, satisfying, or effective than other numbers.
The concept, in this case, may have evolved from early days of storytelling: think Three Little Pigs, Three Billy Goats Gruff, and the Three Muskateers.
It’s no fairy tale that lots of good things come in threes, and we’re experimenting with easy patterns to bring about simple and effective long-term positive changes in our lives, starting with a trio of little steps.
This week, let’s try doing these three basic yoga poses:
- Tree pose, arms stretching up, for balance
- Chair pose, legs bent and arms out, for lower body strengthening
- Plank pose, on the ground, for core strengthening
Hold each pose for one minute and you will love the results. Build these steps into your daily practice and you may find a nearly magical outcome. If you can do it three times, soon it will be six, and nine, and a dozen. What you may think, at first, you can’t do three times — you will be doing fifteen times before you know it.
Have an idea for three? Let us know!
“A pattern can be called a pattern only if it has been applied to a real world solution at least three times.”
