I've recorded a self-compassion mindfulness meditation for you. Enjoy a 5-minute self-compassion break.
Neuroscience has shown that self-compassion has a natural antidepressant effect on the brain. When we practice self-compassion, it regulates and soothes our nervous system, inducing a parasympathetic response, while sending a signal to the brain that we are safe.
Listen to this brief mindfulness meditation anytime you need support through anxiety, depression, grief, fear, insecurities, or chronic pain.
