Compassion Theory…by Paul Gilbert a great way to help people make to choice to look after themselves properly as well as caring for others http://www.compassionatemind.co.uk/ on Radio 4 recently
I am trying to get someone to come and do a talk on this emerging therapy ,in Sheffield. It says that many people tho they are good at caring for others ,do not give themselves permission to care for themselves ,and so they miss out on things which they richly deserve, and face unnecessary self imposed deprivation and stress ! This might only be in seemingly small ways , but they all add up.
So remember , treat yourself to some relaxation and work-life balance !
