Less Self-Criticism and More Self-Compassion: The Importance of Being Kind To Yourself
Show Notes

In this week's episode, Jamie and Guy discuss their thoughts on the importance of self-compassion, inspired by Kristen Neff's  book, "Self-Compassion: The Proven Power of Being Kind to Yourself."  Neff's work sheds light on the importance of treating ourselves with the same kindness and understanding that we readily extend to others. Jamie and Guy discuss the practical strategies for cultivating self-compassion that Neff teaches including mindfulness, self-kindness, and common humanity, and how these principles can help us navigate life's challenges with greater resilience and authenticity.
