Practicing self-compassion through creative expression


In this mid-week pondering I have focused on self-compassion research… I got very inspired by Lani’s  Fun Monday Challenge #23 – Self-Compassion Art ( as usual I kind of reinvent the days of the week lol 🙂

Lani shares some fab links and thoughts on self-compassion and how practicing self-compassion results in an enhanced quality of life reducing stress and feelings of inadequacy that often reflects in what we don’t like about ourselves… So Lani’s great idea is that based on the evidence that exercising self-compassion improves our life then let’s make self-compassion art!!! She suggests to create an art piece with compassion by using a younger version of ourselves….

I think it’s great to explore the different ways in which we can practice self-compassion and that has a positive impact on ourselves… So I decided to incorporate this self-compassion approach in my creative practice and somehow connect my intuition with self-compassion, then take a little time to appreciate and be mindful  brainstorm about ideas to use throughout the day to practice compassion towards others….

So here is an extract of this adventure practicing creative self-compassion and see what happens:)

After this little piece in my journal I created some creative positive notes to distribute randomly promoting self-compassion…


So what is the best way to practice self-compassion for you?
