Tip Thursday - Personal Development

Rather than giving your Self-Critic free reign, try giving Self-Compassion an opportunity. Recent
studies have shown that dieters who used self-compassionate messages (Don't be too hard on yourself, everyone indulges occasionally) actually helped dieters eat less of the tempting food than if they were critical of the 'cheat'. Think of this in a broader context. How often do you engage in self-criticism of your actions versus compassionate support? Really, it comes down to giving yourself a break, reminding yourself when you're doing the best you can. You would show this compassion to others, maybe it's time to show the same to yourself!
