Jan 8 2024 • 53 mins

Practicing self-compassion is essential for our wellbeing. By cultivating self-kindness, recognising our shared humanity, and practicing mindfulness, we can free ourselves from self-judgment and shame. Self-compassion allows us to be there for ourselves, embrace our imperfections, and promote a healthier and more fulfilling life.


In this episode, Anya and Mark explore the three pillars of self-compassion: self-kindness, common humanity, and mindfulness. Anya shares her personal experience with self-compassion and how it has been a game-changer for her. And they touch on the inner critic, fear of judgment, and the need for self-care.
