Yoga Principle #6: Be Content

 

Be content with yourself. Celebrate your uniqueness. Maintain a positive outlook. Have an internal sense of peacefulness. Practice gratefulness.

 

Avoid: being negative and down, being pessimistic, being ungrateful

 

Practice: making the best of any situation, being grateful, being calm and joyful, not depending on “things” that are outside yourself to make you happy, enjoying daily tasks, focusing on the positive, being happy for others

 

Example: After losing the soccer game, you’re disappointed. Rather than acting angry or grumpy about it, you remember that your team showed great sportsmanship throughout the game and you feel proud.
