I know, “self-compassion” and “Wall Street Journal” are not two terms you’d expect to see together, but in this case it’s true.
I found this article interesting and helpful because it contains a few practical tips you can employ daily to support yourself. They also point out the breadth of positive effects that result by being a good friend to yourself:
– Greater Happiness
– Age More Gracefully
– Better Health
I also like that it includes a short 4-minute video so you don’t have to read the whole article.
Where I think it falls short is that they talk about “rewiring your brain” for greater self-compassion, but the tips and hints they give don’t really accomplish that.
What does help you rewire your brain? I’m so glad you asked! Our audio programs of course!
