The Self-Compassion Break is a core part of our Mindful Self-Compassion program. It helps you to understand the benefits of Mindful Self-Compassion as you apply the three aspects of MSC to a problem you're facing. In the Self-Compassion Break you explore (1) mindful awareness of what's happening for you, (2) the experience of common humanity and connection with others around your oh-so-human problems, and (3) an invitation to self-kindness which so many of us find surprisingly absent from our inner lives. The good news is that all three of these "legs of the stool" can be strengthened. The Self-Compassion break is great as a formal or informal practice to do just that.
