Nurturing Self-Compassion

Successful Student Transitions - A Time to Thrive by Louise Wiles and Elizabeth Gillies

Episode notes

We are often good at showing empathy and self-compassion to others and then being really harsh on ourselves. Learn to nurture your self-compassion.

In this episode we discuss:

  • The flows of compassion and how there is a lot of potential for self-compassion to grow.

  • How we would treat a treasured friend - what would we say and do?

  • The role our inner critic plays in negatively impacting our self-talk.

  • Why it is important to think about the relationship we have with ourselves.

  • Being kind to ourselves.

  • The value of noticing and naming.

  • The interesting relationship between self-compassion and procrastination.
