Thu, Feb 08, 2018

We can know our bodies with a much greater awareness than is commonly experienced.

Mindful self-compassion training

Thu, Jan 25, 2018

Our evolved brain is more concerned with our safety and obtaining resources than with our happiness. This can lead to a narrowing of our perception. For example, if while shopping you are received well in five shops, but the sales assistant in the sixth shop is unpleasant, what will you remember about your shopping trip later that evening, the five pleasant sales assistants or the unpleasant one?

Rick Hanson, an eminent neuropsychologist, describes how this negativity bias of the brain makes it like Velcro for bad experience and Teflon for good experience. Furthermore this negativity can often be seen in our attitudes of self-criticism, which we believe leads to our improved performance. However a harsh self-critical inner voice can undermine our self-confidence and self-esteem and lead to feelings of guilt and shame that chip away at our mental wellbeing.
