Some workdays we encounter difficulties.  Why is it that during those difficult times, it's hard for us to give ourselves the kindness that we would so easily give a friend.  

Practicing self-compassion leads us down a path to be our own best friend, giving ourselves understanding and compassion when we need it the most. 

If you'd like to further explore self-compassion, please note that  Denette Mann (featured in the video) will be teaching a complimentary online 1 hour intro to Mindful Self-Compassion. 

Date/time options are as follows: 

Friday, Jan. 29th at 12 noon 

Friday, Feb. 12th at 12 noon 

Saturday, Feb. 13th at 11 a.m 

Each of the above listed intro sessions will last for 1 hour.  

Denette Mann, M.Ed., is a licensed professional counselor in Dallas.  She is also a Certified Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) Teacher. 

 

The key takeaways from learning Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) and practicing it in your daily life, are as follows: 

* Apply self-compassion practices to motivate yourself with encouragement rather than self-criticism 

* Be better able to handle overwhelming emotions with greater ease 

* Approach difficult situations with calm, resolve and self-motivation 

* Reconnect with the values that help in finding purpose in work

That film was The Connection by Award winning Filmmaker and Journalist, Shannon Harvey. She released that film just as yoga studios were becoming mainstream in Dallas. I organized 11 public screenings of that film in the metroplex just due to consumer demand.  Shannon has now released her second film, My Year of Living Mindfully and is offering free admission to view it online for 1 week, beginning now through Wednesday, June 3rd.  

About the Film: Worried for the future mental health of her kids who were growing up amidst epidemics of stress, anxiety, depression and addiction, in a world-first experiment, Shannon recruited a team of scientists to put mindful meditation to the test.

Coppell based registered nurse and board certified nurse coach, Patricia Daiker, RN, NC-BC  weighs in about life with diabetes during the pandemic.  As a Type 1 diabetic herself, she realizes that people with diabetes may face a higher chance of experiencing serious complications from Covid-19.   

The risk of catching Covid19 is accompanied with stress; which is not a friend to diabetes.  According to Daiker, "any sort of stress from illness to worry, can cause blood sugar levels to rise.   Imagine the last 40+ days, that you’re diabetic, following healthy choices but because of stress, your glycemic numbers appear to be off.   It’s the perfect storm for diabetes ‘burnout’ – when you are doing what you have always done, but the numbers don't make sense. If this happens over time, the failures and frustrations may not seem worth the effort and you abandon your diabetes routine. This is diabetes burnout."   "It’s real and dangerous, even on a good day," asserts Daiker who specializes in coaching people through diabetes burnout.

Recently she shared a few strategies to put in place via her 3 min. segment which aired on Mon. April 27th on Fox4 Good Day 

 Approximately 12% of Texans live with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes.  Are you diabetic?  How are you doing?  Take this quiz and find out
