Through self-compassion you can develop greater emotional resilience, higher motivation (often due to being less afraid of failure), and a healthier lifestyle. When you practice self-compassion, you begin to take care of yourself better, meaning you are more likely to eat and exercise well, and more likely to seek the support that you need.
You don’t need any fancy get-up gear or yoga mats to meditate. You can just sit on the floor in a cross-legged position or even in a chair. The main positional note that you’ll need to remember is to sit up straight to allow universal energy to run up and down your spine.
