Mindful Self-Compassion has three basic components:
- Mindfulness (you might have guessed that one)
- Common Humanity (remembering that we are connected to each other)
- and Kindness, or Self-Compassion
If you check out Kristin and Chris's websites above you can find downloadable guided meditations. I give these to clients to use all of the time, and I listen to them quite often myself. If you've got 20 minutes to spare (I bet you do!) you can give it a try and find out just how good it feels to be a little nice to yourself.
