"Being Kind to Yourself in Times of Stress"
This is a short blog from the World Health Organization.

I address this topic in many coaching sessions--especially when I use the Acceptance and Commitment Coaching model. Listen to this great blog and use it however you want. It's good anytime you start to beat yourself up--at work or away from work.
