Sound Bites is presented by Maricarmen Farias

Podcast length 10′ 20″

On this week’s episode Maricarmen discusses an important topic that most people take for granted when it comes to healthy living.  That is self compassion. She helps us  understand what self compassion means, that it’s important to focus on progress rather than perfection. She also shares ways to help maximize lasting health, in particular without having to diet every summer.

Did you know that by practicing self compassion you can make your journey to a healthier life more enjoyable, less stressful and durable?

Those who practice self compassion are known to deal with stress better. That’s important, because chronic stress directly harms health and puts you at risk to engage in unhealthy short-term coping mechanisms, such as smoking or numbing your feelings with food or alcohol.

How to become more compassionate towards yourself?
Start with awareness.
Be aware of your thoughts and emotions.
Observe without judgement.
Remind yourself often that perfection is not required to achieve lasting health.
Finally, show yourself kindness.
Make time to engage in activities that bring you joy.
Think love, not tough love.
