We are often most critical of ourselves and it is therefore important to cultivate self compassion, particularly during difficult times. The Self Compassion Break is a brief guided meditation practice that offers a simple way to develop kindness and compassion towards yourself.
The 3 Step Breathing Space is a brief meditation practice that invites you to take a pause in the midst of life and tune into your present moment experience (i.e. thoughts, emotions and body sensations). Allowing your experience to be as it is without needing to fix or alter it, and anchoring the attention on the breath before expanding awareness to include the whole body and the wider environment. It is often referred to as a mini meditation and is useful to practice when facing difficulty.
