By practicing kindness for ourselves and others, we can cultivate this beautiful emotion. In this practice we use the breath as a vehicle to carry the kindness deep within us, and to reach out to another on the outbreath.

I can actually spare a few moments of my day. I honestly never think that there is enough time for things for myself

Breathing in for me and out for you
It is important to be kind to yourself as well as others. In this meditation, I was reminded that you need to care for yourself first before you can care for others.

Sharing Kindness
I really enjoyed this meditation this morning. On the in breath you give kindness to yourself and on the out breath you think of someone you would like to share kindness with. I decided to share kindness with my best friend that lives in Winnipeg. I hope my positive vibes made it all the way to her today.🥰

I feel a sense of lightness, compassion for myself and for you. It has left me with a greater sense of perspective of the other, of you.

Meditating is important. Breathing deeply can make a difference about how I feel. Kindness can start from just breathing in and out :)

Beautiful meditation to begin the day with. Jiva has you breathing in kindness for yourself and breathing out kindness for another. On your out breath, Jiva recommends choosing something like a plant or animal if that is easier for you. I immediately thought of my best friend to send kindness to. Then towards the end I thought of sending kindness out into the world. Sending kindness and well wishes to all of you today.❤️🤗

I learned that breathing in for me and out for another calms me and makes me feel at peace with this person. Making them feel closer to me. Making me feel happier and calmer

This felt really relaxing.
I chose my mom as the other person to breath out kindness for. I recently sent her this app because it has really helped with my stress and anxiety. I love thinking of breathing in kindness throughout the day and breathing it out for other, I will try to take that with me throughout my day.

Kindness can take many forms and it’s important to recognize and be kind. I found the breathing part was a little distracting as I kept imagining breathing with a face mask on. Lol but it was helpful either way.

Kindness and empathy
Wishing all of us a big helping of kindness, to seep into all our pours and warm our hearts. No barrier required or even recommended. Namaste

It was quite relaxing, but I’m very tired, and I can’t lie down right now.
I learned that deep breaths don’t come naturally for me. This is a practice that would certainly not only help me in stressful situations but might possibly help to avoid getting into them so often.

I felt that this was too short for me to settle into. I would love the opportunity to take this medication (and other meditations from this app) in a much more in depth experience. That being said, I do love the different intentions being expressed. I have learned that I can use these throughout my day quite easily.

Before this session I was undergoing a lot of turmoil in my mind but this session helped to calm. And its a very strong line "breathing kindness in, breathing kindness out". We should be more empathic for other fellow humans and nature

Showing Kindness for You and Others
In today’s lesson I learned that the importance of being kind to yourself and others. Going out your way to show or treat others with kindness always goes a long way, it shows that you care for about the person. When it comes to kindness for yourself, you are taking care of your mind, body, and spirit

No need to be in a rush all the time. Companionships can help us relax. Dreamwork, makes the teamwork.

I have always struggled to be kind to myself. It’s refreshing to meditate not only taking kindness for myself but also giving it to another person.

It was simple and enjoyable, I feel more awake and present with just that few minutes....💗
The smallest habit can really make a difference... odd to think that we can call being present a “habit” we need to create, yet so much of my life I’m not.

Day One
Breathing slowly and focusing with my eyes closed is difficult for me because I have trouble focusing on one person or thing. My mind wanders too much and I can’t stay focused on anything. It took me until near the end of the three minutes to fully focus.

It is hard to mediate as my brain will not turn off n I have a hard time focusing and believing in my self..

Post meditation reflection
I noticed that my visualization of who I wanted to “breath out kindness for” kept shifting and I wasn’t able to focus on one particular person. This is something that often happens with meditating and I think improving my focus is something I need to work on in general. I ended up having a difficult time overall visualizing the breathing in/out of kindness but I still got some deep breathing and tranquility this morning which is awesome.

When was the last time I extended kindness to myself?
I learned that I don’t stop and extend kindness to myself enough throughout the day. This was a wonderful practice to remember to be kind to myself. To allow for flaws and weakness because I am human.

Day one. I’m emotionally drained. I’m will need to space myself and have hard boundaries with my ex and people who are unsafe.
I can still have inner peace. Erik brings me much joy. I’m not sure what I’m doing without goals to work towards... but immediate needs are more pressing. I must address the immediate concerns then I can look towards the future.

Replacing disappointment with kindness
I learned that rather than dwelling on making a mistake which disappointed someone to accept this has happened and rather than dwell on it to replace it with kindness

I felt motivated to produce money at work. I don’t want to be too aggressive diagnosing.
I can have feelings in which I don’t want to be around a person anymore, it’s okay, and I can be okay with them around.
