Are you kind to yourself?

Many of us need to treat ourselves with a little more kindness.

According to an article in The New York Times, February 28, 2011, a “new area of psychological research called self-compassion” indicates we would be happier and more optimistic if we treated ourselves better.

Research indicates that people who give themselves a break and accept their imperfections have less depression and anxiety.

Self-compassion is not the same as self-indulgence or lower standards, says Dr. Kristin Neff, author of Self-Compassion: Stop Beating Yourself Up and Leave Insecurity Behind.

What happens when your child is struggling in school or eating too much junk food? Most parents try to help the child by providing tutoring or offering more healthful foods.

What happens when you’re struggling at work or overeating and gaining weight? Do you become critical of yourself? Or, do you try to find ways to help yourself?

We’re going to make an effort to be kinder to ourselves—and to read Dr. Neff’s new book. We’ll write more about the book in a later blog post.

    Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my

    iphone and tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so

    she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now

    destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is

    totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!
