Ways to bring self-compassion

By: Aileen Baxter

It’s easy to lie in bed at night and think of the things that went wrong in the day and have these thoughts keep repeating over and over before we go to sleep. It’s a normal instinct But, there are ways to change the focus from negative to positive.  Keep a pen and notepad next to your bed.  Each night exercise some mindful self-compassion by writing down three things you did well that day.  You can write about anything from the day that went well.  It doesn’t matter whether the things you write are big and important or smaller.  The only goal is to spend time thinking positively. Keep the notes and refer to these when you are having a bad day.
