HOW DO I TREAT MY­SELF?

We tend to in­ter­nalise a crit­i­cal ap­proach to our­selves, judg­ing our­selves harshly as a re­sult, says Ul­brick, who ex­plains that how we treat our­selves can very of­ten de­ter­mine how we treat oth­ers. “An at­ti­tude of mind­ful­ness en­cour­ages us to be more kind and com­pas­sion­ate to our­selves,” she ex­plains.

Set an in­ten­tion you as­pire to in your re­la­tion­ship with your­self and oth­ers, she ad­vises; for ex­am­ple, to be more pa­tient or to lis­ten more at­ten­tively. quickly. Let go of things in or­der to care for the bond and the con­nec­tiv­ity in a re­la­tion­ship. There is a skill to of­fer­ing a de­cent apol­ogy. Take re­spon­si­bil­ity.”

And re­mem­ber, she says: “The more mind­ful we be­come, the more able we are to see other peo­ples’ per­spec­tive.”
