Good News of the Day:
Many believe that being hard on themselves will make them better people. However, research does not support this belief. Self-criticism has been shown to reduce motivation, increase procastination, and increase rumination. This article from the Greater Good Science Center summarizes some of the scientifically-proven healthier ways to take an honest look at yourself and learn from your mistakes. From criticizing behaviors rather than traits to practicing self-compassion, learn how to be your own friendly critic and best friend.
Be The Change:
Think of one thing you have done this week that you feel badly about. Practice viewing this action from a place of self-compassion and understanding. Try focusing on what you learned, and come up with a plan of how you can do better next time.
