“Buck up.” “Stop feeling sorry for yourself.” “Don’t ruin everything.” When you are anxious, sad, angry, or lonely, do you hear this self-critical voice? What would happen if, instead of fighting difficult emotions, we accepted them? Over his decades of experience as a therapist and mindfulness meditation practitioner, Dr. Christopher Germer has learned a paradoxical lesson: We all want to avoid pain, but letting it in--and responding compassionately to our own imperfections, without judgment or self-blame--are essential steps on the path to healing. This wise and eloquent book illuminates the power of self-compassion and offers creative, scientifically grounded strategies for putting it into action. Free audio downloads of the meditation exercises are available at the author's website: www.chrisgermer.com. See also The Mindful Self-Compassion Workbook, by Kristin Neff and Christopher Germer, which provides step-by-step guidance for building mindful self-compassion skills and applying them to specific life challenges, and Teaching the Mindful Self-Compassion Program, by Christopher Germer and Kristin Neff (for professionals).

Get it now and learn how!Sample Excerpt from " Self-Compassion: The Secret of Self-Compassion - Learn Self-Compassion and Self-Love Using Tried-and-Tested, Proven Methods. "If you don't practice self-love and self-compassion, you cannot love or feel compassionate towards others.-Dalai LamaStrangely, most of us can easily express love, compassion, and dignity to others. But it seems to be quite a struggle to turn these important emotions inward. Many of us are led to believe loving and showing compassionate to ourselves is a form of self-indulgence.-I am such an idiot.-I am so bad at this.-Everyone seems to have understood this except me.-I am quite a horrible parent/friend/child/sibling.These negative thoughts about ourselves are a constant, endless chatter in our minds. They never seem to stop. Even when others find something nice to say about us, we tend to see a flaw through that praise.So for example, after a presentation, if someone said to you, "You did great today," many of us auto-tuned to reply with "Yes, but I wish I hadn't made so mistakes" or "I wish I could have done better" or something like this. This approach is not just a reflection of a lack of self-compassion but is also unwittingly a bit put-off for people who try to give you honest, positive feedback.So why is it we are so horrible at self-compassion and self-love? Typically, our inner self seems to be divided in its opinion about us. A part of our inner self is rooting for our happiness, supporting our efforts to achieve success in life. However, another part of this inner self is working against us, putting us down, persistent at being our worst enemy.This "inner critical voice" is continually trying to stop our progress, dent our confidence, and undermine our strengths for inexplicable reasons. This inner critique voice prevents us from pursuing our goals and penalizes mercilessly for our failures and mistakes. Our Book Covers the following topics: - Self-Compassion - Self Love - Self Love for Women - Self Love Healing - Self Love Experiment - Self Compassion - Love Yourself

With more than 30 different tools including quizzes, breathing exercises, and visualizations, the book explores four powerful weight-loss methods. The audio edition guides you through 11 key practices described in the book. Used together, this powerful combination can speed learning and boost success. Additional topics include: How to appreciate the everyday activity of eating, and learn to trust your body’s signals that it’s nourished Gradual change—a guided visualization for developing mindful eating habits A meditation for getting to know the diet coach who knows you best—your compassionate inner advisor “Most dieters try to ‘kill cravings’ and break habits with self-discipline,” teaches Fain. “Self-kindness can help quiet the shame that traditional diets instill, and establish a harmonious relationship with food.” The Self Compassion Diet book and audio offer a treasury of heart-opening mind-body teachings and practices for improving the way you live, breathe, and eat.
