What’s in this episode?
In this episode, Drs. Elisha Goldstein and Bob Stahl discuss the power of small acts of kindness and generosity — for ourselves and for others. The best place to start practicing these simple mindfulness practices may be with yourself!
Practicing generosity with yourself helps you feel “good enough” to accept kindness from yourself without guilt. Set any judgments aside and notice what it’s like to simply receive.
