Sanford Monthly Well-Being -Empathy and compassion for Stronger emotional well-being
Practicing empathy is to understand someone else’s perspective, or to put yourself in their shoes. Empathy helps to connect and relate to others. Neuroscience research shows that our ability to empathize is connected with self-control. Losing your cool with someone is a great example of poor self-control and not practicing empathy.
Compassion is showing kindness and care. When we understand where someone else is coming from (empathy), it is easier to care about or support others. Practicing empathy and gratitude cultivates compassion.
