Making Compassion Common Again
Compassion doesn’t cost a dime, yet the outcomes of this simple practice is priceless. In a world where mental health and well-being is finally gaining attention, compassion should be at the forefront as a bridge to human connection and building meaningful relationships. Compassion is like a muscle. The more you practice it, the stronger it becomes. The less you exercise it in your daily life, the more likely it will atrophy.
Theresa introduces research-based compassion practices of positivity, empathy and kindness which may strengthen a person’s resilience when experiencing stress and anxiety, for both the giver and receiver. This creates a natural pathway for open, respectful conversations, even when it is difficult. Practicing compassion not just for others but for yourself, improves your mental and emotional states and leads to a more mindful, positive and happier life. By being open to another human being’s suffering, heart opens and you have an opportunity to make an impact. The smallest act of kindness can make a lasting impression. Theresa inspires you to see through the eyes of compassion so you can live your best life and help others do the same.
