The power of self-compassion - Harvard Health Publications

The power of self-compassion - Harvard Health Publications | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

Harvard psychologist Christopher Germer, in his book The Mindful Path to Self-Compassion, suggests that there are five ways to bring self-compassion into your life: via physical, mental, emotional, relational, and spiritual methods. He and other experts have proposed a variety of ways to foster self-compassion.

 

Here are a few:

 

Comfort your body. 

Eat something healthy. Lie down and rest your body. Massage your own neck, feet, or hands. Take a walk. Anything you can do to improve how you feel physically gives you a dose of self-compassion.

 

Write a letter to yourself. 

Describe a situation that caused you to feel pain (a breakup with a lover, a job loss, a poorly received presentation). Write a letter to yourself describing the situation without blaming anyone. Acknowledge your feelings.

 

Give yourself encouragement.

If something bad or painful happens to you, think of what you would say to a good friend if the same thing happened to him or her. Direct these compassionate responses toward yourself.

 

Practice mindfulness. 

This is the nonjudgmental observation of your own thoughts, feelings, and actions, without trying to suppress or deny them. When you look in the mirror and don't like what you see, accept the bad with the good with a compassionate attitude.

60 Inconvenient Personal Development Truths

60 Inconvenient Personal Development Truths | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

I know you want to be the best you can be. We all do. But sometimes we look for success in the wrong places or we try to achieve it in the wrong ways.

 

Here are 60 inconvenient truths about personal development to help you stay on track.

 

The acquisition of knowledge doesn’t mean you’re growing. Growing happens when what you know changes how you live.You can’t have good ideas unless you’re willing to generate a lot of bad ones.A good idea without action is nothing at all.It’s not so much about finding opportunities as it is about creating them.10% of our lives is decided by uncontrollable circumstances. 90% is decided by how we react to those circumstances.What we don’t start today won’t be finished by tomorrow.If you’re waiting for the perfect conditions, ideas or plans to get started, you’ll never achieve anything.

Welll, don't be too intimidated or even bored by the long list... they are perls... OK, you've met perhaps even each (don't think so but might be...) but it's such a goog arrangements to have them together and need nt read a whole book (though there are recommendations within about some)... it is worth even to copy it out to recheck them from time to time... good reading and thinking about them....

It's not about what you know... It's how you act!

48 Variables That Make the Biggest Difference in Your Life - Self Stairway

48 Variables That Make the Biggest Difference in Your Life - Self Stairway | All About Coaching | Scoop.it
48 practical actions you can experiment with to improve yourself. From building confidence to learning how to socialize.
Ariana Amorim's insight:

From this post: 

Conversion Rate Optimization, or CRO, is the practice of finding ways to increase the effectiveness of a specific goal. It is usually applied in marketing.

 

What does CRO have to do with self-improvement?

 

Just like CRO, no advice or change in a variable is universal. Something that may work for one person may not help you. There are an infinite amount of complexities that affect how things unfold for you.

Second, one small change may end up being the defining factor, but you’ll never know until you implement and track the results, so always be testing.

Third, life is rarely as simple as changing just one small thing. It is possible, but you shouldn’t count on one golden formula. It may end up being a large combination of different things.

 

There are 48 different things you can try...
