How do you typically deal with life’s difficulties such as work stress, financial pressures, relationship issues and physical problems? Like most people, do you frequently fight uncomfortable experiences and find fault in yourself when things go wrong? What would happen if, instead, you took a moment to comfort and soothe yourself when you felt bad—like you do for others?
Treating yourself with kindness is the essence of self-compassion, a skill that is surprisingly easy to learn and will help you personally and professionally. Research shows that self-compassion increases happiness, optimism and life-satisfaction and reduces anxiety, stress and depression. It’s especially powerful in these challenging times when all of us need to be kinder to ourselves and find energy to pivot in our businesses.
In this workshop you’ll discover what self-compassion is, how to practice it and why it can help you live more fully and wholeheartedly.
You’ll learn how to:
• Stop being so hard on yourself
• Handle difficult emotions with greater ease
• Motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism
• Practice mindfulness and self-compassion in everyday life
