- Too often, we forget to reserve some compassion, care and love for ourselves.
- This simple exercise can help foster kindness in our self-talk and in the way we speak to other people.
- By making this meditation a regular practice, we can give ourselves the gift of lovingkindness all year long.
The stressors of daily life can deplete our ability to bring compassion to our interactions and sharpen our internal and external voices in ways we might not like, or even notice. In this short video, Christina Cress, Psy.D., an integrated behavioral health provider at Providence Swedish, shares a simple meditation to help soften life's edges. Try it and give yourself a gift of self-love for the new year.
