When we're not feeling good, a common response is to beat ourselves up for not feeling good....and then we feel worse! Why not try being kind and compassionate with yourself with this short self-compassion break instead?

I can’t relax
I’m subconsciously hard on myself all the time. It’s natural to push yourself, but I push myself so hard that any time that I take for myself feels inherently wrong and lazy. When I lie down to bed, sit down to eat, or take a moment to meditate my whole body is screaming at me to get back to work. It’s awful, but I’m aware of it.
Just what was needed
I felt so much better after doing this meditation even for just 3 minutes. Fantastic!

I love the Counting Backwards meditation! It make smile and relax ! Compassion break was just what i needed . Thank you, Jeeva
Compassion is not just for others. I know this will pass and that nothing is permanent. I also believe that there is opposition in all things which makes the best of times all that more joyful.
