Just like no two people are exactly alike in every way, shape, and form, it is not likely that everyone would benefit from the exact same way of practicing self compassion.

Research has unequivocally supported the benefits of practicing self compassion for one’s mental, physical, and relational health. Just like no two people are exactly alike in every way, shape, and form, it is not likely that everyone would benefit from the exact same way of practicing self compassion.

In this article, I would like to share with you a number of different ways for you to practice self compassion; before I do, though, I would like to emphasize that there is no “wrong” or “right” way to practice, nor is there any one special way to practice.  Whichever strategy gets the feel good hormones pumping through your body and activates watm and kind feelings toward yourself is precisely what you are looking for.  Try out different techniques listed here or create your own! Take all the time you need!  It is important to be self compassionate as you practice self compassion!

Practices:

  • Self Compassion Break (Neff, 2003)
  • Hand Over Heart
  • Give Yourself a Hug
  • Soothing Touch
  • Holding Your Hand
  • Meditation
  • Write Yourself a Self Compassionate Letter
  • Keeping a self compassion journal
  • Keep notes around your house or car that remind you to be self compassionate.
