THE SELF-COMPASSION DAILY JOURNAL:

Let Go of Your Inner Critic and Embrace Who You Are with Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

Do you beat yourself up when you make a mistake? Are you overly self-critical, holding yourself to unrealistically high standards? If so, you aren’t alone. It can be challenging or even uncomfortable for many of us to embrace ourselves with kindness. However, over time, self-criticism can lead to increased anxiety and depression, lower our self-confidence, and even undermine our ability to take steps toward positive, meaningful change. The good news is that self-compassion is a skill that can be learned.

In The Self-Compassion Daily Journal, clinical psychologist and author of ACT Daily Journal Diana Hill offers powerful writing prompts grounded in acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), mindfulness, and compassion-focused therapy (CFT) to help you let go of harmful self-criticism–whether it’s about body image, career goals, or parenting–and instead cultivate kindness and forgiveness toward yourself.

With this journal, you’ll find practices to help you:

  • Reduce anxiety, depression, and rumination
  • Improve and deepen your relationships
  • Bolster feelings of self-worth and confidence
  • Reduce stress and boost immunity
  • Build resilience, happiness, hope, and optimism
