According to science, practicing self-kindness, gratitude, forgiveness, and patience are good for us personally as well as professionally. Tuning into your inner voice and toning down critical self-talk can improve self-kindness. Journaling three things per day that you're grateful for over 21 days can retrain your brain. Embracing forgiveness can increase productivity, wellness, and trust. Slowing down can reduce impulsive decision making and increase satisfaction.
