Yesterday, I did a Soul Level Animal Communication® reading for a wonderful person and their kitty.  I started our reading by energetically connecting with the person and very quickly discovered they had a huge core of kindness.  This kindness encompassed humans, animals, nature, basically all different kinds of aspects of our human experience.

As I was thinking about the unique and challenging situation, we are all facing right now, I wondered…

How can we show more self-kindness to ourselves?

For example, it often seems that it is much easier to be kinder to another being or animal, than it is to be kind to ourselves. 

I decided to create a list of different ways you can be kind to yourself! 

  • Pay attention to your self-talk
  • Write a thank you note to yourself
  • Take a nap
  • Eat well
  • Read
  • Ride the current rollercoaster, knowing all the emotions you feel, makes you human
  • Move your body
  • Forgive yourself
  • Go outside
  • Breathe deeply
  • Meditate
  • Turn off the news
  • Laugh
  • Dance
  • Connect (virtually) with people you adore and haven’t been in touch with for eons
  • Do Yoga
  • Say yes
  • Create something
  • Sing
  • Stay up late
  • Watch the wild life outside your window
  • Learn something new
  • Do a puzzle
  • Play an instrument
  • Plan
  • Do affirmations in the mirror
  • Paint
  • Smile
  • Clean
  • Do something you rarely get to do, but love to do
  • Bake
  • Ask for help
  • Play with your pet
  • Say no
  • Pamper yourself
  • Doodle
  • Just be
  • Go to bed early
  • Make yourself a special meal
  • Give yourself a break

I realize this list is only the tip of the iceberg!  There are a gazillion ways you can be kind to yourself. I’d love to hear your favorite way you are kind to yourself.

Please remember: the first step is to give yourself permission to do one or more (hopefully, many more) kind things for yourself!

I believe when we are kinder to ourselves, it makes it easier to be kinder to all other living things. 

Stay well and be kind to yourself!
