How does harm reduction as a framework for promoting healing, growth and positive change work?
- Start with bringing acceptance, compassion and curiosity to where one is in each moment-maybe with a focus on breath as an anchor – “start where we are-not where we think we should be”.
- Embrace every positive change goal as valuable, as a measure of success and as a good place to start…as small as it needs to be.
- Every little positive step contributes to the process of moving in a positive direction…a little less food or drink or spending or device checking, a little less often, a little less self-judgment and attack, a little more self-compassion, a little more self-care, a little more relaxation, sitting with ourselves with curiosity, compassion, acceptance and breath.
- Get started wherever one is ready to begin!
