Kindness as a Prescription for Living Your Best Life
Based on my book, The Kindness Cure, I share the relevant findings about the science of kindness and compassion; how we can make sustainable changes in our lives, encourage more kindness for individuals, teams, and organizations we work with, and how to ignite goodwill and generosity for what we stand for, even in times of hardship and uncertainty. Through specific skills and daily practices, I will help you cultivate a kinder, gentler orientation to life that dissolves feelings of fear, apathy, and stress — and ultimately help you feel more connected, courageous, and inspired.
The Secret Sauce for Success: Self-Compassion for Women
In a world that reinforces success, performance and productivity, it’s easy habituate to high levels of stress and to lose a sense of self. This is especially so for women, who are adept at multitasking and taking care of others. While ambition, passion and motivation are key values in seeking goals and dreams, can they co-exist with a sense inner peace, calm, and serenity? Practices of self-compassion, courage, and “kindfulness” in daily life can offset the stress response. Learn how to strengthen your resilience, confidence and purpose with certain self-care skills, that when practiced regularly, can promote positive “neuroplasticity” and build enduring positive traits.
Creating Kinder Cultures at Work
Truth be told, kindness is a good prescription for a life well lived. Kind actions and a compassionate attitude bode well for both physically and mental health. We might try to be kinder than we think we are, especially at work. Why? For one, according to research, a majority of people are miserable at their jobs even if they say they’re happy to have one. Two, we spend over 30% of our lives working. Might as well try to enjoy it, right? Third, when we behave in kind ways, the positivity that arises then spreads to others. Moreover, new leadership models show the soft skills, like mindfulness, compassion and selflessness, make for better workplaces and more engaged, productive employees.
