7 Ways to be kind to yourself

Slide 2: 

1. Give yourself space to grow, learn, imagine & create You might be living in environments where play, creativity and thinking big is shunned or frowned upon Outer conditions are no excuse really No one is stopping you from expanding your mental horizons but yourself Let your mind roam free. Read, watch, dream, be inspired, loosen and broaden your perception and awareness

Slide 3: 

2. Get to terms with your internal critic The internal critic grows with us and becomes part of our mental makeup since we are young It also has a positive role – that of keeping us balanced and in check with ourselves so as to prevent us from doing something crazy or dangerous But most of the time it is a downer which makes us lose confidence, motivation and perspective Be aware of it when it pops up and as you recognize it, thank it but dismiss it gently

Slide 4: 

3. Let go of your guilt Guilt can be a strong emotion which ties us to our past In essence guilt is often a misperception of the truth, an emotional attachment which enslaves our heart Although it can feel difficult to overcome guilt it’s not impossible neither improbable You just have to remember that mistakes are part of our lives The choice is between getting stuck in mistakes that we are all bound to do or whether we learn from them, untie ourselves from them and move on

Slide 5: 

4. Believe in your dreams & trust your heart Having a free mind is a powerful thing but having a strong heart flows with the ultimate energy of the universe Allow yourself to be more open to your heart This is something we have to relearn to do but it’s there if you stop and listen

Slide 6: 

5. Cherish your Success We have been taught not to give too much credit to ourselves and always give credit to others This is a good thing but when it is done at an extreme we can suffer too Give credit to yourself and cherish your positive achievements even if the most simple and mundane ones

Slide 7: 

6. Take yourself more lightly One of the main stress factors that is common in our lives is the fact that we take things too seriously and we come down hard on ourselves This often makes us fall into black or white thinking Take yourself more lightly. There is always room for error as there is always room for solutions, viable alternatives and a more positive way to look at things.

Slide 8: 

7. Give yourself chance to fail We very often fail to achieve something because we don’t even try in the first place The fear of failure or fear of mediocrity immobilizes us and prevents us from even trying Chances are that you will succeed much more and fail much less by a) Trying first of all and b) not letting failure to stop you from trying again.
