Are you holding yourself in servitude to shoulds, oughts, and musts? Instead, make an active commit to non-self-harming. Mindful self-care is part of a practice of non-violence toward oneself, embracing attitudes and actions that are self-respecting and life affirming.

Self-care is something we must prioritize and attend to, not only for our own wellbeing, but also for the benefit of those we love. When we practice mindful self-care, we build the patience, trust and confidence needed to sustain compassion for self and others over the long term so we can truly make a difference.
