Continuing with our theme of self-care this month on Happy Magazine, today we wanted to highlight the wonderful free tools available over on US-based self-care expert, Dr. Kristin Neff’s website, self-compassion.org
Self-compassion is not self-indulgence, rather it is the very tool you can use to help you make lasting positive changes in your life.
Practicing self-compassion can also be a wonderful tool to help you with many of the anxieties that come with a cancer experience.
If you’re interested in finding out more, check out Dr. Kristin Neff’s website and in particular, the Practices section. Here you will find 7 guided meditations, all free to listen to and also to save if you wish, and also 8 self-compassion exercises.
Recently we also shared Dr. Kristin Neff’s TEDx talk on the difference between self-compassion and self-esteem here on our website, and it’s really insightful. Why not have a listen to it today if you haven’t heard it already?
