Online Peer Group Chat// Being Kind to Yourself // Thursday 16th December 2021, 7PM-8:30PM AEDT

Hello to all of our friends on the Forums!

 

Our next Online Peer Group Chat will be held on Thursday 16th December, 7 - 8.30pm AEDT. The topic will be Being Kind to Yourself.

 

Summary of topic!

It can be really hard to practice self-kindness for a number of reasons, but it’s also super important and something that we are all deserving and worthy of. Let’s come together to share ideas on ways we might be able to practice self-kindness in our lives.  

 

What to expect:

  • Reasons why it may sometimes be difficult to be kind to ourselves
  • The benefits of being kind to ourselves
  • Techniques on being more kind to ourselves
  • Solutions on how to reach out to others who might help us be kind to ourselves

To join or to submit a question for the group, click here. As always, if you're interested but can't make it you will be able to read the transcript of the group the next day here.  You're also welcome to create a thread here on the Forums to keep the discussion going!

Just a reminder:

Thanks for the Peer Group Chat Reminder @girasole 

I got home from Work (10 hour Shift) at 5.30pm my time (8.30pm AEDT).

So I missed it - You had already finished (gone).

I'm sorry to hear you missed it, @Adge! Also so sorry for the late response, I'm rarely on the forums these days so entirely missed your reply.

 

If you haven't heard already, though, the online peer group chats are now weekly! You can check out the website for the next few groups lined up 🙂 Hopefully you'll be able to make some more, but most of all I hope you're doing ok with what sounds like an extremely exhausting workload 💙
