My yoga teacher always tells us to be kind to ourselves as we try to execute what she instructs us to do. She would say: do the best you can ... close your eyes ... you don't have to do what others can do.
At yoga today, Karin told us to turn the corners of our mouths up slightly to form a faint smile (one that maybe only we can detect) in order to relax the tense muscles in our faces. As I put a smile on my face, not only did my tension melt away, but I also felt happy. What a great way to be kind to yourself! Try turning the corners of your mouth up slightly all day the next few days. I think you will feel really good.
