As is often the case in difficult times we are seeing the best and worst in humanity. There is plenty of blame and anger around.  There are also acts of kindness and compassion. None of us has infinite energy and our ability to remain compassionate, effective and productive in both our home and work lives (increasingly blurred) will rely on our ability to look after ourselves. Investing in our own wellbeing and developing greater self-compassion needs to be a priority. Each of us is different and there is no one right way to do this – the methods we choose to invest in our wellbeing is not so important but doing it is vital.

During the session you will:

  • Understand the notion of “intrinsic motivation” and why this makes self-compassion more difficult for key workers
  • Learn about the 3 core components of self-compassion
  • Explore how developing greater self-compassion boosts the immune system and reduces anxiety
  • Understand how practising self-compassion can change your responses to negative experiences and setbacks
  • Identify the tools and tips to incorporate self-compassion into your life
