be good to yourself

A lot of media attention is given to the issue of bullying, either among kids, in relationships, or in the workplace. It's something none of us would tolerate or want to happen to someone we care for, so it's quite startling to learn that self-bullying is something many of us do. We all know that inner voice that tells us to be better or achieve more, but when our self-talk becomes harsh or overly critical, telling us we're not good enough, it can have an effect opposite to what was intended, slowing us down.The notion of practising self-compassion, and the many benefits it has for us, is something doctors and researchers are increasingly taking a closer look at. On page 12, our experts reveal that by nurturing a kinder,…

rosamund pike why this is her year!

Rosamund Pike, 40, is what you’d call classically cultured. The elegant English actress grew up with musically inclined parents – her mother was a classical violinist and her father an opera singer – and she studied music and literature at Oxford University. Starting out on the stage, acting in productions of Shakespeare plays and British dramas, the one-time Bond girl and Gone Girl star is now enjoying the most productive period of her career. With striking turns in true-life dramas like A Private War and Radioactive, where she plays an award-winning war correspondent and a celebrated French-Polish scientist, respectively, Rosamund is having the time of her life portraying strong female leads, all the while dedicating herself to being a devoted mother and partner. She lives in London with her…

stop beating yourself up!

Bullying. Pretty nasty, right? Not something you’d ever want to be associated with. Funny, then, that so many of us are in the habit of beating ourselves up. We set the bar high, and when we don’t quite make the mark, the self-admonishment starts: “Oh, why didn’t I leave earlier? I’m such an idiot...”, or “How could I eat that whole packet of biscuits?” We’d never talk to a friend this way, so why on earth do we speak to ourselves like that? Treat yourself like a good friend“Self-bullying is something we do when we fall short of our own self-image,” says Dr Kristin Neff, a psychologist who’s blazing a trail in self-compassion research. It’s important to realise, explains Kristin, that this habit of beating ourselves up is a…
