13 simple steps you can take to be kinder to yourself:
- Make a list of your positive qualities and refer to them often. Even if you’re beating yourself up, you’ve remembered some good things about yourself; that’s something!
2. Give yourself time to recover from mistakes and failures before judging yourself too harshly. You probably wouldn’t chastise someone else for having a bad day; cut yourself some slack!
3.Find an outlet for your negative feelings and then distract yourself with something else. If you’re angry, write in a journal or go for a run to clear your head.
4.Remember that “self-care” is not selfish—good mental health is just as important as good physical health. Caring for yourself motivates you to take care of others and be a healthier person overall!
- Be aware of how much energy you put toward hating on yourself and spend that time working on loving yourself instead.
6.Don’t let other people’s negative opinions influence your self-perception more than you should. You may learn from others, but you must live with yourself!
7.Remember that everyone makes mistakes—and if people are willing to be in your life, it’s likely they care about your flaws as much as they do about your strengths. Loving someone is often more about accepting their negative qualities when they’re at their worse than expecting perfection.
8.Give yourself credit for your achievements, no matter how small. It’s easy to focus on negativity when you’re in a rut; try not to let the whole world go while you feel miserable!
9.When you speak negatively about yourself, you’re speaking factually and not in absolutes. It’s one thing to say, “I’m terrible at cooking,” but another to say, “I will never be a good cook.”
10.Remember that the people around you may see your supposed flaws without much context. For example, if someone always seems to be frustrated with you, that person might not understand the pressure you feel at work.
11.Remember that positive self-talk is essential for your mental health and your general happiness! Would you listen if someone told you never to talk about yourself positively?
12.Look at your good qualities and actions from a new perspective, and you might realize that your flaws don’t seem nearly as bad.
13. Be aware of how often and in what ways you speak negatively about yourself and to whom you’re speaking this way. If it’s mostly with people who like and care about you, they probably don’t want to contribute to your negative feelings!
14. Practice Acknowledging Your Successes
One of the easiest ways to be kinder is to acknowledge your successes. Keep a list near your bed or in your purse of what you are proud of yourself for doing, even if they are small. When your inner critic starts to take over during a sleepless night, refer to that list and remind yourself that you can continue to do well in life if you keep trying! We all mess up sometimes but acknowledging the small steps that we took in the right direction helps us see that our failures are just part of growing and learning.
15. Give Yourself Time to Recover from Mistakes And Failures Before Judging Yourself Too Harshly
Everyone makes mistakes, and no one is perfect. Give yourself time to reflect on your error without rushing yourself before deciding how harshly you should judge yourself for it.
Maybe you could have said something better or approached that situation differently.
If so, write down what you would do differently next time the opportunity arises to avoid repeating this mistake.
Allow yourself time to reflect and learn from the situation, rather than opening a wound that hasn’t had a chance to heal yet.
16. Practice Mindfulness to Be Less Critical of Yourself
Self-critical people tend to take things too personally and give themselves a hard time for all kinds of minor mistakes.
Instead, practice mindfulness and take time to reflect on the situation before deciding how harshly you should judge yourself for it. What is true about who you are as a person right now?
If someone made fun of your outfit today, would it be fair for you to conclude that they think you look ugly all the time? Or would it be more accurate for you to assume that they must be having a bad day?
If this mistake happens often, ask yourself if it has more to do with your actions or the actions of other people around you.
17. Remind Yourself That Everyone Is Doing the Best They Can at Any Given Time
You can’t expect other people to always be on their best behavior, and you shouldn’t expect it of yourself either.
People make mistakes and say things that they don’t mean because of stress or other personal problems they may have. You can get mad at them for it, but if you genuinely want to practice kindness toward yourself, give others the benefit of the doubt.
If someone lashes out at you, remind yourself that they’re doing the best they can give what’s happening in their life.
18. Remind Yourself That Everyone Is Struggling with Something
If you want to be kinder to yourself, it might be helpful to remember that everyone is struggling with something. You don’t know everything about other people, and they don’t know everything about you.
It’s important not to judge yourself by comparing yourself to others.
You can acknowledge that everyone struggles with something, but it’s up to you whether you decide that the issues others face pale compared to yours.
You may feel like there is nothing worse than your depression or anxiety, but that doesn’t mean true.
19. Let People Help You
If you want to be kinder to yourself, it might help you to accept the love and support of others rather than pushing them away.
Even if you feel like no one understands what you’re going through or there is no way they could ever understand, letting other people in and supporting you will help you heal faster.
Let them remind you that you are a good person and let them love you the way only they can.
20. Stop Comparing Yourself to Others
If your self-criticism stems from not living up to someone else’s standards, then it may be time for you to reach out and connect with the source of your self-criticism.
You may not be able to stop other people from affecting you, but you can try to keep yourself from caring about what they think.
Remind yourself that a person’s worth is independent of their accomplishments and remind yourself that you’re doing the best you can.
Here are some tips to help you be kinder to yourself. Have the courage to say no when it’s not right for you or that person.
Take time out of your day just for yourself, even if it’s only 10 minutes a day.
Spend less time worrying about what other people think and more time being proud of who you are as an individual.
Be gentle with yourself when things aren’t going well so that they don’t spiral into something worse than they need to be – take care of your mental health first! Remember how good love feels and use this feeling as encouragement on days where everything seems complicated.
And finally, remember that life is full of ups and downs, but living through these times can make us stronger.
