Practice self-compassion

Instructions

  1. Get to know your madwoman.
     Write out your madwoman’s feelings and thoughts. Notice where she’s harshly critical of you, shaming, or perfectionistic.
  2. Befriend your madwoman. 
    Turn toward that self-critical part of you with kindness and compassion. Thank her for the hard work she has done to help you survive. 
  3. Practice gratitude for what you have. 
    You can write a letter to people telling them how they have helped you or simply pay a ‘gratitude visit’ to them. 
  4. Practice Gratitude for how things happen. 
    Take an event, give it a title and write about what happened. Describe how it made you feel and how you feel now as you think about it.
