Step 4 Compassion - Week 2
Monday with Terry
Practicing compassion for ourselves is the beginning of being compassionate. Compassion is an act of kindness to ourselves. How can you know if you are practicing compassion for yourself? You would not beat yourself up or compare yourself with others. You would acknowledge yourself for every little step out of your comfort zone and the risk you take to grow and reach your goals. You would practice self-care and set boundaries. You would honor your feelings, forgive yourself, recognize other’s points of view, not take what others say about you personally, let go of unrealistic expectations, believe in yourself, and believe that you are lovable just the way you are. How are you showing compassion for yourself?
Wednesday with Kelly
Practicing self-care is a topic of discussion on every platform on social media. Just this morning on CBS, a brain surgeon was explaining the benefits of self-care on the efficiency of your brain. In order to avoid memory loss, he indicated these steps to good brain health: Exercise, Diet, Getting out of your comfort zone, embracing change, Sleep, Connections with family and friends, and Conversations with others concerning your decisions.
Kindness, Empathy, Compassion, Connection keeps us alive!!
