From The Daily Scan: Eating disorders & the power of self-compassion
Submitted by Communications & Public Affairs, Providence Health Care
February 1 to 7 is Provincial Eating Disorders Awareness Week (PEDAW), a BC-wide campaign to raise awareness around prevention and early intervention of eating disorders. In light of this week, learn more about some of the eating disorders research taking place at St. Paul’s Hospital.
Growing evidence links self-compassion with good mental and physical health.
So what exactly does it mean to have compassion for oneself? It means being mindful, recognizing our common humanity in times of hardship, and practising self-kindness in times of suffering.
Researchers at St. Paul’s Hospital are currently exploring the role of self-compassion in eating disorders treatment and recovery.
