Developing Your Compassionate Mind - uwaterloo.ca/campus-wellness/events

Why practice self-compassion?

Through research, self-compassion has been linked to positive well-being in the reduction of negative mind states, including anxiety, depression, perfectionism and shame. In addition, it has been associated with improved emotional coping and greater resilience.
