Self Improvement

102 STASHED IDEAS

  3. Don’t Be Self-Critical: Don’t self-sabotage yourself by negative thoughts and embrace self-compassion instead.
  4. Use A Different Approach: Our own values and beliefs may need a rethink and we might require fresh, alternative solutions to our problem.
  5. Connect With Loved Ones: Make sure you are not neglecting your support group, friends and family in these hard times.
