Be Kind to Your Mind

I teach my clients to be kind to themselves.

I show them how to be aware of their thoughts, and to do so as a “compassionate observer”.

But what does that really mean?

If you’ve ever…

🔹Felt guilty for feeling a feeling

🔹Shamed yourself for just a thought

🔹Held yourself to a much higher standard than that of a friend

🔹Beat yourself up for not being “as good” as someone else

That, my friend, is NOT being kind to yourself.

I know, because I’ve done all of those things hundreds of times.

The following things really helped me. Give them a try, and see what happens!

Next time…

✅ Know that a feeling is just a vibration in your body. Allow yourself to feel, without the judgment that comes after it.

✅ Know that a thought is a made-up sentence created by your brain. Try to observe your thoughts with only curiosity and compassion.

✅ Next time you pass judgment on yourself, think – would I treat my best friend this way? If the answer is no, ease up on yourself and treat yourself the way you’d treat said best friend.

✅ ONLY compare yourself to yourself. Celebrate your wins, no matter how small. Try it- see what happens. You may find it easier than you think.
