"I was tired of listening to my harshest critic, the little voice in my head, so I became more KIND to myself." -Member of MyHeartDiseaseTeam
You may judge yourself and others every day without realizing it. Like many members of MyHeartDiseaseTeam have found, living with heart disease is an exercise in frustrating moments. You may blame yourself when you look in the mirror, when fatigue gets the best of you, or when you falter with a simple task. The problem is when you let these internal judgments shape belief in yourself.
Here are recent conversations from members on MyHeartDiseaseTeam:
Experts in mindfulness and self-care recommend pausing a moment when you find you're judging yourself. Be aware of those judgments. Ask yourself where this is coming from. Use the moment to be gentle and compassionate with yourself.
