Lately I have been thinking about self-compassion. The topic came up at my work a few weeks ago and it got me thinking about the meaning of self-compassion and whether I practice it. For me self-compassion is giving yourself a break, being kind to yourself and treating yourself the way you'd treat a friend. It means not feeling bad about yourself if you don't make it to the gym as planned or check off something on your to-do list. You can go to the gym the next day ... or the day after. No biggie. I am beginning this week with the intention of practicing more self-compassion. I hope you are kind and gentle with yourself today.
Happy Monday :)
