ON-THE-READY WELLNESS TIP: You may already have a good way to instill some self-compassion into your daily life. (If so, I would love to hear about it!). Something that I have started doing for myself recently is, whenever I have that nagging case of the 'shoulds' ("I should eat healthier", "I should go to sleep earlier", etc.) or I declare an intention to move toward my ideal self ("I will spend time developing a hobby to have a more balanced life"), I complement the negative space with an acknowledgment and appreciation of something I already do. So, for every goal you make for yourself, acknowledge something that you already do that you are proud of to create a balance.
Are you too busy for 'self-care'? Don't have the luxury to take time out of your day to meditate or go to a yoga class? My On-the-Ready Wellness blog will give you practical, low-cost tips for improving your overall mental health and wellness.
