COMPASSION

Think about the words and actions of someone who has treated you with incredible kindness. Mimic these actions on yourself. Journal or voice record them and relay them when you are feeling low. Practising soothing yourself in the mirror or in your mind regularly to build muscle memory.

MINDFULNESS

Practice sitting with your thoughts and feelings. Acknowledge your emotions without judgement and try not to suppress them. Breathe and connect with your senses, focusing on the present moment. Allow yourself to be. Practice this any time, anywhere.

HUMANITY

Consider imperfection as the normality of being human. Endeavour to embrace your mistakes. Take a moment to consider your reaction when things go wrong and whether you can reframe the situation. Share experiences with others and appreciate a common humanity.
