Rick Hanson talks about Befriending Yourself. This practice aims to cultivate the deep sense of being a friend to yourself. Firstly, take care of yourself.

Befriending yourself can be so difficult but here are 3 ways to make it easier to come home to yourself:

1. Consider a loving-kindness or compassion-centered meditation at least 3 times a week.
2. Practice receiving praise and compliment with radical acceptance
3. Keep a gratitude journal
