In my Smart Talk Episode 090 conversation with Kristin Neff you’ll hear about:

  • Why is it that many people aren’t as compassionate with themselves as they are with others.
  • How self-compassion can be motivating
  • The importance of self-appreciation
  • Meditation practices to get us started with self-compassion


Are you hard on yourself? Does it feel like it’s natural to be compassionate to those your love, but it’s hard to treat yourself the same way? Do feel like self-criticism is necessary to motivate yourself to achieve the results you want? My Smart Talk guest, is Kristin Neff, and she’ll explain the growing body of research that tells us – if we want to effectively reach our goals and improve our mental health — we need to be kind to ourselves.
