Video: Introduction to Self-care Hug

Self-Care:

This is helpful for when we feel:

  • stressed
  • anxious
  • when our defence barriers are up
  • when we beat ourselves up
  • withdrawn and isolate ourselves
  • locked in cycles of repetitive thought about events in the recent or more distant past

With mindful self-compassion, this practice offers an antidote that will soothe, comfort and reassure, down-regulating the threat system and waking up the caregiving system, enabling a return to the present and to the ability to re-connect with our adult self and to connect with others.
