Ways to Practice Self-Compassion Tips

  • Trust your brave, wise voice within. She knows the way through.
  • Imagine what the most meaningful life would look like to you, then take a step towards that.
  • Do the basics when in doubt: drink water, exercise, rest, laugh, cry, sing, talk, listen, hug.
  • Choose creating over consuming (unless you get to consume something with chocolate….then choose that.)
  • Check in with and hold your boundaries.
  • Stop scrolling, unplug, and be present in this world in your own beautiful body and breath.
  • Practice self-compassion over seeking perfection and self-forgiveness over self-judgment.
  • Give yourself permission to feel all the feelings. And pay attention to what your feelings are telling you that you need.
