What is self-compassion, and why do we need it to be healthy?

Everyday stress from things like work and relationships can lead to self-criticism. We all have moments when it seems like we can't do anything right, but when does it become too much? One remedy to this common problem is to practice self-compassion — the act of being kind and understanding to yourself and your shortcomings, much like you would do for other people. Practicing self-compassion can lead to a healthier, more productive life-style.
