Yoga Homework

Yogis, I have some homework for you. :)

The homework is simple: be kind to yourself.

When you are going about your day to day life, off the mat, be kind to yourself. 

When you regret making a mistake, be kind to yourself. When you eat something that initially makes you feel guilty, pause for a moment. If you've scolded your kids and wish you hadn't been so harsh, take a breath.

Treat yourself with kindness. Love yourself. You are human.

If you need a note on the refrigerator to remind yourself, write one! Send yourself an email reminder. Set a calendar appointment on your phone. "During this moment, I love myself and I will treat myself with respect and kindness."

Allow yourself to feel that kindness, letting it sink in.

Each day, this is the practice.
