  • Mindfulness-Based Stress Relief (MBSR) and Mindfulness Self Care (MSC) are complimentary approaches.
  • MBSR is noted for reduction in stress and anxiety by working with perception and encouraging a meditation practice.
  • Research has demonstrated the effectiveness of MBSR for working with day-to-day stressors as well as difficult life situations.
  • Both MBSR and MSC help reduce stress levels. MSC does not require a formal meditation practice works by addressing emotions.
  • Most of us feel compassion when a close friend is struggling yet find it difficult to do so for ourselves.
  • Research supports that offering compassion to ourselves and to others is a two way-street which when practiced enhances personal, familial and professional relationships.
