self compassion Jul 31, 2020
 
❤️ Be aware of our suffering and less judgemental of our experiences
❤️ Actively sooth and comfort ourselves after something goes wrong
❤️ Tender and warm touch releases oxytocin, which has a calming effect.
❤️ Observe our language and replace negative self-talk with positive self-talk
❤️Create a self-care vision board of activities to address of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health
❤️Engage in self-compassion meditations and exercises eg: Yin and Yang self-compassion
❤️Yin – comforting soothing and validating thoughts, being with ourselves
❤️Yang – acting in the world, protecting, providing, motivating eg setting boundaries, saying no
❤️Talk to others who have been through similar experiences, thereby realising our shared connectedness in experiencing hardship
❤️Also ask the question – if a patient walked into my clinic right now and shared the same story, what would I say to them?
