Try Some Self-Compassion

I’m happy to have Jean Fain, L.I.C.S.W., M.S.W., a Harvard Medical School-affiliated psychotherapist specializing in eating issues, and author of The Self-Compassion Diet: A Step-by-Step Program to Lose Weight with Loving-Kindness back as my guest. Today she shares how to give yourself more compassion, which a lovely gift of self-love.


Here’s what she has to say: 

The practice of self-compassion – treating yourself like a good friend or loved one – may be centuries-old news, but suddenly it’s new again. For the last year, not only has self-compassion been making headline news, including the #1 most emailed NY Times article last winter, it’s the topic of an increasing number of popular books.
