“If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.” His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
Do you give yourself compassion regularly?
Do you find self compassion icky? Do you think self compassion is selfish, self pity or only for the weak?
Compassion is natural and when you can give yourself compassion, your life can be happier, healthier and more balanced.
Scientific studies have found that practicing self-compassion regularly can help to:
- reduce self-criticism
- lower stress hormones
- increase self-encouragments
- increase resiliency
- help to heal past pain especially from shortages of childhood days.
How do you practice self-compassion? Watch this video and practice along.
