Compassion extends beyond the love we have for our partners, families, friends, or pets. We also have to practice compassion for ourselves. Inviting a gratitude practice into your routine is a great way to start. You can grow this practice into more patience and kindness with yourself as you notice daily moments of gratitude.
Set aside a few minutes for reflection each day. I use the Five Minute Journal, but you can easily write your practice anywhere that works for you! Writing your responses will solidify and reinforce the practice.
