#44: Finding Strength with Self-Compassion


Practicing mindfulness helps us manage stress and can also help you become more resilient in the face of challenges.  Being mindful also means having compassion for yourself.  Practicing self-compassion and loving-kindness meditation reduces negative emotions, increases positive emotions, fosters resilience and   Self-compassion helps us feel more connected to ourselves and others, even when we are apart from each other. This episode covers the 3 components of self-compassion followed by a loving-kindness meditation.
