What is Self- Compassion?

In simple terms, it's a way of relating to yourself kindly All too often we are really hard on ourselves & don't show ourselves enough love or self-compassion. Research seems to suggest that self compassion should form a fundamental part of our self-care tool kit. There is also evidence to show that it is effective in managing anxiety as well as symptoms of depression, by reducing our self-coldness score - the way with which we speak to ourselves. It's our protective powers, if you like, over our mental health.
The more we practice self-compassion, the more things we do like eat healthy food, exercise & take care of ourselves in other ways.

The power of self-compassion

Studies show that it can shift our mindset from pessimism to optimism, which then has a knock on effect on other areas of our lives.

The more we practice self-compassion, the more things we do like eat healthy food, exercise & take care of ourselves in other ways.

It's the thought that when we're not trying to swerve the negative emotions, we begin to experience more positive emotions, which in turn lead to adopting healthier behaviours.

As I always say "everyone is on a diet, it's just what you choose to eat & drink."

If you're trying to lead a healthier lifestyle or want to, there will be times when a relapse occurs, but that's ok it happens!

If you tell yourself this, you're more likely to get back on it, instead of giving up completely.

This is what we call self-talk & this is a technique I teach my clients.

Self-Talk - be kind to yourself

Talk to yourself as you would a good friend.

  • Got a work deadline? Ask yourself what support do you need to meet it?
  • "My food choices weren't so good today - that's ok, I will tomorrow"
  • "I really wanted to go out for a walk or do some exercise today but didn't - that's ok I will tomorrow"
  • Choices - ask yourself - "If I decide to do this, will this move me closer to my goal or will it move me further away from my goal?"
  • Imagine you have a friend who is in exactly the same situation you're in right now - what would you say to them?
