Being generous with loved ones and the people in our lives can truly do a lot for our own mindset. It can also benefit our health, as I talked about in yesterday’s blog post. Expressing gentleness and good will toward yourself can be more difficult than sharing these gifts with those around you. We often neglect to do positive things for ourselves or take care of our physical and emotional well-being. However, it’s important to remember how doing so can improve your life.

Self-kindness is truly one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself. We’re so often taught that it’s selfish to focus on our own needs. That couldn’t be further from the truth. Caring for ourselves is necessary if we want to have enough energy left to give to anyone else. Self-kindness goes beyond self-care. It involves forgiving yourself and being generous with yourself. Being kind to yourself is made up of all the same types of acts you would show to someone else.
