Learn how to practice compassion when it’s hardest

Part of self-care means developing empathy for the people who test your patience.

We all have those people in our lives — people who make us feel frustrated or anxious.

Practicing compassion for the people who hurt or frustrate us can be tough. But it’s one of the most important parts of being mindful.

 MyStrength, a free benefit through Asante, offers a guided exercise to help build your empathy.

Self-care tips

  • Are arguments too overwhelming? Know that it’s OK to take a break. Take a deep breath. Then, let the other person know that you need a couple of minutes. Use the time to calm down before resuming.
  • To truly see the benefits, you’ll have to build a regular practice.

For additional information, go to mystrength.com or download the myStrength app from your mobile device’s app store. If you are signing up for the first time and are prompted for an access code, enter 10017473.
