• When your inner critic or an outer critic finds faults, try and find truth and exception to what is being said.
• If you stumble or feel you have failed, don’t beat yourself up. Act as if you were your own best friend: be kind and supportive.
• Do something to wind down at the end of each day.
• Take a few minutes each day to appreciate yourself
