How to soothe ourselves and others
Last week, we mentioned three simple self-soothing and self-calming techniques that we can do when we are faced with overwhelming stress, anxiety, and other negative emotions. Today, I want to share this beautiful animated video from the School of Life that tells us more.
Presented in a calm, gentle voice, the video explains the importance of knowing how to calm and soothe ourselves and others, especially in times of crisis.
"One of the most vital of all life skills is soothing; the art of calming oneself down, restoring perspective and remembering to be kind to oneself. Too often, because we were never properly soothed by others as children, we have no idea how to soothe ourselves as adults. We need to learn the significance of soothing." (School of Life)
