Has anyone ever told you that you’re ‘very hard on yourself’?
Or perhaps you know that to be true for you?
Did you know that this way of treating yourself is often at the root of depression, anxiety, low confidence and self-esteem?
By practicing self-compassion, you can increase motivation, reduce depression, build optimism and greater happiness and boost life satisfaction. (Dr Kristin Neff).
One way to get started is to practice loving-kindness meditations – there are many available online but I’ve created one here, with loving-kindness from me to you (heart emoji). Let me know how you get on!
