An Important Meditation For Anyone Who's Too Hard On Themselves

Everyone can benefit from this.

You are a person, and being a person is hard. You want to do everything perfectly, but sometimes forces outside of your control become obstacles that prevent you from doing so.

Breathe. Remind yourself that you are not your achievements. The best way for you to move forward from critical thoughts and foggy feelings is by being nicer to yourself. If you turn those negative voices on the inside into positive ones, it'll show on the outside.

This is a reminder to have self-compassion. You are stronger than you think you are. Watch the video above from The School of Life and start practicing a compassion exercise that'll redirect the flow of any negative self-talk.
