Most of us feel compassion when a close friend is struggling. What would it be like to receive the same caring attention whenever you needed it most? All that’s required is a shift in the direction of our attention—recognizing that as a human being, you, too, are a worthy recipient of compassion.
Research shows that self-compassion is strongly associated with emotional well-being, lower levels of anxiety and depression, healthy habits. and more satisfying relationships. Learn how to motivate yourself with the same kindness and understanding you’d offer a close friend, enabling you to care for yourself while caring for others.
