Research shows that the more we practice being kind and compassionate with ourselves, the more we’ll increase the habit of self-compassion.  And that my friends will increase your ability to be happier. Here are some tips from Dr. Kristin Neff, leading expert on self-compassion on how to practice it.

Ask yourself “how would you treat a friend who was going through this situation”
Talk yourself through it with acceptance. “This hurts. Pain is part of life and I am not alone with this feeling. #the struggle IS real
Repeat one or all of the following phrases 

May I be kind to myself.
May I give myself the compassion that I need
May I learn to accept myself as I am
May I forgive myself
May I be strong
May I be patient
3. Keep a journal to process the difficult events of your day through a lens of self-compassion. It can enhance both mental and physical well-being.
