Go Easy on Yourself

How well do you treat yourself?  Is it as well as you treat your friends and family?

This question has become the basis for a new area of psychological research called self-compassion. Research is showing that people who are supportive and understanding with others often score quite low on self-compassion tests.  But giving yourself a break may be an important first step toward better health.

The New York Times reports:

“People who score high on tests of self-compassion have less depression and anxiety, and tend to be happier and more optimistic. Preliminary data suggest that self-compassion can even influence how much we eat and may help some people lose weight.”
