Are you a person who has an easier time taking care of others’ needs than your own? Do you have a strong inner critic? Do you have an intuitive sense that being kinder to yourself would serve you, but you are not sure where to begin? Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) course topics to be covered are: practice self-compassion in your daily life, understand benefits of self-compassion, motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism, handle difficult emotions with greater ease, and manage caregiver fatigue. Studies show the benefits of MSC include: practicing self-compassion is strongly associated with emotional wellbeing, less anxiety, depression and stress, maintenance of healthy habits such as diet and exercise, and satisfying personal relationships. Through classroom exercises, mindfulness practices and discussion, you can gain insight and self-awareness.
