This month Project 40 is asking you to take care of yourself! Being happier requires both physical wellness and self-compassion. Fitness, proper sleep hygiene and nutrition can improve your overall health and well being. But the barrage of self-deprecating thoughts that you have can actually negatively effect your mind and your body.
The practice of self-compassion, where you turn your inner dialogue from critical to supportive, has been proven to greatly increase both physical and mental health. Studies have shown that individuals who use self-compassion daily are more emotionally intelligent, get better sleep, and are overall more motivated. The benefits are astonishing and self-compassion is actually quite simple to perform. Watch this month’s Happy Hack on self-compassion to find out more about the benefits and how you can work on nourishing your mind and body.
