Today I got to speak with Amy Eva, from Greater Good Science Center, about self-compassion. Greater Good is a really neat organization because they actually do research on things like happiness and positivity.
“What we’re dealing with in our country now is an increase in #anxiety, #depression & #stress among young people…think how are we talking to ourselves & what we’re saying to ourselves. 80% of us treat others better than we treat ourselves.”
“Because we become more self-conscious as #teens, we also become more self critical and judgmental, so it’s really important to have skills that will help you to be kinder to yourself.”
