May the Lord cause you to increase and enrich your love for each other and for everyone in the same way as we also love you. May the love cause your hearts to be strengthened, to be blameless in holiness before our God and Father when our Lord Jesus comes with all his people. Amen.
1 Thessalonians 3: 12-13

Look for an opportunity to be a self-care ambassador today by encouraging another person to exercise self-compassion. For example, you might do the following:

  • Acknowledge a person’s right to feel sad, angry, or anxious if they’re going through a difficult time
  • Encourage a person to be gentle with themselves when they lapse into self-judgment
  • Remind someone to be patient with themselves when they are learning something new
  • Help people identity false should messages that might be contributing to their stress
