Making a habit of practicing self-kindness has the power to change the way you think and feel about others. The research is clear we all need some personal downtime. That said, it can be hard to take a little me time, and we can fall into the trap of feeling guilty when we do. The next time you get caught in the thoughts of "I can't" or "I shouldn't," tell yourself I am doing this for "the kids."
Teens today have so much to process between school, homework, work, social interactions (online and offline); it is hard for them to know when to relax. It is essential for parents, educators, grandparents, and everyone between to model the importance of taking some personal time.
Showing is better than telling. We challenge you to do these three acts of self-kindness this week. Invite a teen to join you, and you both might be surprised by how good it feels to take a break from it all.
