I’m so glad to present the free on-line course Daily Bits of … Self-compassion, launched today in English! It is based on the idea to serve shorter bits of knowledge in various themes, check out the website if you’re curious.
In the Self-compassion course, you’ll get an e-mail every workday for three weeks. You’ll learn how to give yourself kindness, talk more friendly with yourself and improve your relationships. Especially the one with yourself. Which will, automatically, improve your relationships with others.
Here’s a short presentation:
Many of us have quite a critical attitude toward ourselves. Some of us might even address ourselves with a harsh, demanding voice inside, constantly reminding ourselves that we’re never good enough. Or telling ourselves “Now, pull yourself together!”.
These are the words we’d never ever say to anyone else, not even to our worst enemy. Are you one of us? Do you ever listen to the voice inside or to how it makes you feel? Self-criticism, researchers have found, can be as stressful as being criticized by someone else.
By practicing self-compassion, you can calm yourself down and cultivate a far more sustainable sense of well-being than the thrive for self-esteem. It does even make you perform better than motivating yourself with your inner critic.
The number of scientific papers on self-compassion has increased exponentially since 2003, when the research was initiated by professor Kristin Neff at the University of Texas. And since Kristin Neff and psychologist Christopher Germer established the program Mindful Self-compassion in 2010, it has spread all over the world. Starting this year, you can become a self-compassion teacher not only in English but in German, Spanish, Chinese and Korean.
