Be Kind to Yourself

One of the ways in which you can be kind to yourself is by setting boundaries: "If the sum of your daily stressors were a pie, how big would be the slice representing worries that are truly yours alone? Half? A quarter? A sliver? Your friend's pending divorce, your sister's overspent credit card, even your son's college application, are all cause for compassion – but recognising the difference between caring about someone else's problems and taking them on as your own can make the difference between stress and serenity."
