The compassionate u-turn
This practice is based on the three universal expressions of compassion: soft gaze, soothing touch and gentle vocalisation. And it’s called the compassionate u-turn because we usually behave like this toward others when we feel compassion but we can also give compassion to ourselves in the same way. This practice specifically activates the self-kindness component of self-compassion.
50 sec “Dropping Anchor” practice
Dropping anchor is a useful skill for handling difficult thoughts, feelings, emotions, urges and sensations more effectively. It helps you to ground yourself in difficult situations and develop more self-control. It can be used as a ‘circuit-breaker’ for any problematic behaviours.
