Day 89

Today I learned probably everything there is to know about the possible benefits of self-compassion for overcoming body-dissatisfaction and promoting positive body-image, as I wrote a literature review on the topic.

“For someone to develop genuine compassion towards others, first he or she must have a basis upon which to cultivate compassion, and that basis is the ability to connect to one’s own feelings and to care for one’s own welfare… Caring for others requires caring for oneself.”

-Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama

Today I meditated for 15 minutes of loving-kindness practice, as described on Day 60.

Today I acted kindly by warning a girl that she was dangerously close to crossing the road into an oncoming car.
