Be Kind to your body
13 Years & Older
Who is the person you will spend the most time with throughout your life? Who will have the biggest influence on your success and your happiness? It’s you!
Some people speak to themselves harshly because they think it will motivate them to do well, but the science is showing that it is so much better to treat ourselves with kindness.
Being kind to ourselves means that we feel our feelings, we don’t judge ourselves and we understand that things can be tough but we are not alone in experiencing hard times. Learning how to show yourself compassion (called ‘self-compassion’) can be a really powerful tool in promoting your physical and mental health and wellbeing.
