Why Self-Compassion Helps You Meet Life’s Challenges. A healthy dose of self-compassion can give your motivation a boost. Published on October 1, 2013 by Melanie A. Greenberg, Ph.D. in The Mindful Self-Express.
“Kristin Neff, the most well-known self-compassion researcher, calls it “a healthier way of relating to yourself.”Rather than beating yourself with a stick to get things done, you extend kindness and understanding to yourself. It’s like saying to yourself “I know you’re trying your best, but life is tough and you don’t always get it right, because you’re only human.” It also has a component of mindful self-awareness, in which you acknowledge your own emotions, but don’t get overidentified with them or use them as excuses not to meet your goals…”

Why Self-Compassion Works
This post suggests a fresh monitoring of our personal relationship with the concept of self compassion. If we find ourselves feeling responsible and guilty for the discomforts we are experiencing, then this may be useful advice for us. With the use of hypnotherapy we can learn to adopt those thoughts, emotions and beliefs which we belief to be more benefitial and productive than those we hold at a particular point in our life. A thorough analysis and rational conclusion over the unproductive nature of our held thoughts, emotions and behaviours will be necessary. Once this part of the process is completed we have the opportunity to rehearse the new, realsitic and useful thoughts, emotions and/or behaviours from a hypnotic state, allowing them in this way to sink faster and easier into our subconscious mind.
