Podcast Episode 211: How Showing Yourself a Little Self-Compassion Will Benefit Your Entire Family (Especially Your Kids) with Dr. Kristin Neff

Do you struggle with self-compassion? We’re all guilty of it, especially as women. Speaking negatively to ourselves about ourselves sometimes just comes too easy! 

In this episode, we are sitting down with the renowned Dr. Kristen Neff to dive deep into the world of self-compassion. Dr. Kristin Neff is a researcher who founded the field of self-compassion study and has written several books on it, including Self-Compassion: The Proven Power of Being Kind to Yourself and her latest, Fierce Self-Compassion: How Women Can Harness Kindness to Speak Up, Claim Their Power, and Thrive. We chat about the two faces of self-compassion, the tender side of treating yourself with kindness and understanding, and the fierce side that empowers you to stand up for your well-being. 

Plus, we explore how self-compassion isn’t just a personal journey; it can have a huge impact on your parenting style, helping your kids grow up with better emotional resilience. Dr. Neff shares some awesome insights on how to make this work for you, and we get real about how self-compassion has changed our lives and those of our kids. This is a must-listen for anyone looking to enhance their life and parenting journey!
