Comparison is the Thief of Joy

Hi guys - I hope you are doing well! 


I just wanted to ask what strategies/techniques YOU use to help quieten/stop your self-comparison-related thoughts. Some useful things I do include: 

1. Practising gratitude by focusing on the strengths and resources that you DO have. 

2. Practising self-compassion by treating yourself with kindness and understanding when you make mistakes or feel less than. 

3. Practising a growth-mindset by embracing challenges as an opportunity for learning and growth as setbacks are only TEMPORARY and not an indicator of your self-worth. 

4. Practising mindfulness by focusing on what is happening NOW and what you are doing NOW instead of thinking about what others are doing. 

5. Talking to someone I trust! This always helps lift my mood and gain a better perspective on what is actually happening! 


Keen to hear your thoughts/tips!
