Self-Kindness Tips for Children
10 ways you can be kinder to yourself!
Being kind is the best thing you can be. But sometimes we can focus a lot of our energy on doing things for others and forget about being kind to ourselves.

All that kindness inside you will spill out into the world and help you be kind to people too.

Practising self-kindness can slow down our heart rate, helping us feel calmer and even supporting our immune system! Sometimes we’re far more critical of ourselves than we would be of other people; just remember that mistakes are marvellous and help us to learn – and no one’s perfect!
