Health tip: Go easy on yourself

| April 22, 2013

Don’t beat yourself up for eating that piece of pizza or missing a few days at the gym. Self-compassion is more effective than drill sergeant techniques and it’s linked to greater happiness. Hounding yourself can make you feel¬†worse and less inclined to change your ways.¬†The next time you feel discouraged, give yourself a pep talk instead of a lecture.
