SHINE Program Manager, Melody Oliver, is focusing on today’s tip which is Self-Compassion.
“In an effort to become more mindful and in choosing to incorporate Yoga into my routine…as often as I could , I discovered more than I was seeking. I learned that in my efforts to become more healthy, physically and mentally, that I had a huge barrier that was interfering with my efforts, not only regarding practicing yoga but in most matters in my life. In blaming obligations, of work and others, I come to understand that the only barrier to my self care, ….. was me, and my lack of self-compassion.
The more I learn the more I know that, I am my own best friend, and I give myself permission to care for me….. choosing to decide ….that whatever I have accomplished in a day … is enough. Wont you?”
