Self-compassion is associated with reductions in anxiety, depressive symptoms, eating disorder symptoms, PTSD symptoms, self-criticism, shame, and stress-induced inflammation. It’s associated with increased happiness, life satisfaction, meaning in life, motivation, optimism, psychological well-being, and resilience. Researchers are exploring the benefits of interventions to increase self-compassion. Therapies incorporating self-compassion offer the potential to augment or even replace other forms of therapy for mental health problems.
Unlike efforts to increase self-esteem, self-compassion doesn’t increase narcissism. Self-compassion also enhances motivation for self-improvement. The next step is to take self-compassion beyond the realm of psychology and into the world of neuroscience to test if interventions to increase self-compassion can lead to changes in the brain associated with reduced negative mood and increased well-being. The following list summarizes studies involving associations between self-compassion and beneficial traits, as well as the results of interventions to increase self-compassion.
