Good News of the Day:
Are you your own worst critic? It’s common to beat ourselves up for faults big and small. But according to psychologist and author Kristin Neff, that self-criticism comes at a price. For the last decade, Neff has been a pioneer in the study of “self-compassion,” the revolutionary idea that you can actually be kind to yourself, accept your own faults– and enjoy deep emotional benefits as a result. In this insightful interview she discusses the three core aspects of self-compassion, and shares how poignant experiences, including being the mother of a son diagnosed with autism, helped her better understand the vital importance of kindness towards oneself.
