Have you ever criticized yourself for a mistake? It’s natural, we all do. But do you end up rehashing the event over and over in your mind? Do you feel like you beat yourself up over small things? Sometimes, we have a harder time forgiving ourselves than we do others. There’s a distance we can place between ourselves and others that allows for healing. Letting go of our own foibles can be trickier. We try a few of the following to help;

* Push out your negative thoughts with positive ones.
* Do something kind and loving for yourself. Read a good book, have a cup of tea, take five minutes to yourself to do something you enjoy.
* Be gentle with yourself. Don’t push to do “one more thing” when you know you are at a breaking point.
* Write down what’s bothering you and then throw the paper away.
* Go for a cleansing walk.

Taking good care of yourself among all things you have to do every day should be a priority! Don’t neglect your well being while “being”.
