Yoga Asanas for Self-Acceptance: An Expert Shares Tips | Health
Self-acceptance, when instilled in children from an early age, helps boost positive thinking and emotional well-being. It also helps get rid of negative thoughts and give way to positive emotions. Speaking to HT Lifestyle, Sabrina Merchant, founder of Li’l Yogis, an exclusive children’s yoga academy, said: “Self-acceptance means embracing and accepting who you are without any strings attached. It means recognizing that we all have positive and negative traits and that we can improve those we find undesirable. Practicing self-acceptance can help children on their journey to self-love, which can have a positive effect on emotional well-being and can even improve self-esteem. Yoga is an effective way to practice self-acceptance as it provides a way to relieve stress and become healthy and active. This in turn helps the mind also free itself from unhealthy thought patterns and makes room for changing negative beliefs and behaviors.
