The Power of Self-Love: Navigating Mental Health with Self-Compassion


Watch the latest webinar from The Break Room, our exclusive series for Premise Health members. In this session, Premise’s very own Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and Behavioral Health Product Manager, Megan Ashcroft, discusses how self-love can help you cope with feelings of depression and anxiety. Watch to see examples of how to form a positive relationship with yourself and manage emotions in a healthy way rather than driving in an endless loop of negative thought patterns.

 

Running on an empty tank? Fill up with self-love practices.

Practicing self-love involves different ways of treating yourself with kindness, understanding, and empathy. It’s about accepting your strengths and weaknesses and embracing all aspects of who you are. By nurturing a positive relationship with yourself, you can quiet those negative, self-critical thoughts and achieve inner peace and happiness.

Cultivating self-love can help you feel happier, more optimistic, and more connected to those around you. In fact, treating yourself with compassion makes it easier to build strong, healthy relationships with others. The confidence you gain from loving yourself can even help you tackle future challenges with greater ease and resilience. Ultimately, self-love can help you live a more fulfilling life.

Take a moment to evaluate how you have been treating yourself lately. Focusing on yourself can make a significant difference in your mental health even if it’s just a few minutes a day. Compliment yourself, take a break from the daily grind to care for your needs, and embrace all your flaws and quirks. Forgiving yourself for not being perfect can also make coping with difficult emotions feel a little easier.
