this week, we're going to talk about developing compassion for yourself, which for many of us can be even more difficult than compassion for other people. Our teacher today is seven a Selassie who is one of the most popular teachers on the 10% happier app. She knows a thing or two about applying self compassion during difficult periods in her own life, having been diagnosed with Stage three breast cancer at the age of just 34. So enough out of me, let's toss it over now to 78 Hey there, this is seven. A welcome to this meditation on developing friendliness and compassion towards ourselves. Research shows that when we have self compassion, we exhibit more resilience, ruminate less and are able to learn from setbacks. Easier friendly and compassionate attitude is imbued with ease. When I'm kind to myself, it's like my whole system starts to relax. We're going to practice, bringing a friendly and kind attitude to ourselves by extending compassion for our stress. Let's start find a comfortable posture. Take a few moments to settle into your body, perhaps connecting with the breath as a way to gather your attention. Just feel the air coming in and out, breathing in, breathing out. Can you rest awareness on the body? Feeling sensations going inwards? Just notice how you feel in this moment. You can ask yourself what's happening right now. How does the body feel? What do you notice in the mind with your emotions not changing or trying to fix anything? Just notice. Without judgment. In a moment, I'm going to invite you to say some phrases to yourself. Just remember, for the next few minutes you'll be training your capacity for self compassion. And let's begin that training by considering a major stress in your life right now. Allow yourself to feel it by connecting to it in the body. Notice where it is and how it feels now. Offer yourself thes three simple phrases. This is stress. Stress is a part of life. May I find ease? Stay connected. Thio the sensation in the body continuing to bring awareness, repeating these phrases silently to yourself. This is stress. Stress is a part of life. May I find ease
