“Compassion for others begins with kindness to ourselves.”
– Pema Chodron
Stressed? Need a Dose of Self-Kindness? Try a Compassionate S.T.O.P. practice.
Slow down, allow a momentary stop in your day to care for yourself.
Take a few deeper, satisfying breaths with a bit longer exhales.
Observe with self-compassion – offer caring and kindness to yourself as you might a dear friend or loved one.
Proceed with self-caring and a possible new perspective.
