Welcome to October and Practising Kindness month!
Since today’s the first day of Practising Kindness I think it’s best to start by examining our intentions and identifying areas where we do not practisce kindness towards ourselves. This can be done through journalling or blogging our thoughts.
When practising kindness, self-acceptance is key. Yet it’s so difficult. Especially as we’re surrounded by messages encouraging us to do otherwise. Therefore, self-acceptance is an important goal that we should each have for this month and beyond.
Here’s my starter plan for practising kindness:
- To wake up each day with practising kindness at the forefront of my mind. When I feel negative emotions I will stop and examine these; identifying their source, and their worth, and whether the emotions and thoughts are things that I need to something about or make efforts to let go of.
- Daily journalling
- Daily practice of self-acceptance
- To eat without restrictions (other than the IBS necessary ones) and intuitively, with love
- When I have fat days, I will make every effort to wear clothes that celebrate my body rather than hiding my body (and my fat feelings) under baggy clothes.
Now it’s your turn. What are your plans for practising kindness?

Hope you’re having a great weekend. Bring on self-love and kindness this month! 🙂
