In this video, Craig and Richard explore how self-compassion helps boost our performance (as well as improving our wellbeing).

Watch Craig and Richard discuss how self-compassion can improve study and work performance.

Talking point

Within the Comments, consider sharing with other learners your thoughts on issues raised in the video, and the following questions:

  • Have you ever been kind to yourself when you failed at something or experienced a difficulty or setback?

  • How did this help resolve the situation?

  • And how did this experience differ from times you were self-critical?

You might like to take some time to read comments made by other learners, and if you find these comments interesting, respond to them. Remember you can also ‘like’ comments or follow other learners throughout the course.
