Self-Compassion is the act of caring for yourself the way you would a loved one. This episode explores practicing self-compassion, based on the research from Dr. Kristin Neff. Dr. Neff identifies three main components of self-compassion: self-kindness, mindfulness, and common humanity. We will explore these concepts, as well as ways we can practice self-compassion.
