Yoga Principle #4: Practice Moderation


Remember to do all things in moderation. Practice self-control.



Avoid: doing/indulging in too much of anything, whether it be thoughts, speech, or use of your body



Practice: self-control and moderation in all areas of life



Example #1: When you see all your friends coming to school in the latest brand design of sneakers, you immediately think you must get a new pair, too. But then you remember that your sneakers are fine, still fit, and have a lot of wear left. Having yet another pair would be somewhat wasteful as they are not really needed. You decide to be content with, and grateful for, what you’ve already got.
