Research in positive psychology shows that self-compassion increases our feelings of wellbeing and decreases anxiety and depression. One of the key principles of self-compassion is to be kind to ourselves.

“We should never think that it is selfish, or wrong, to be kind to ourselves. Being generous to ourselves, making friends with ourselves, and uncovering our own kindness and confidence, are central to the (Buddhist) teachings. We uncover our own Good Heart, our fundamental goodness, and that is the aspect of ourselves that we identify with and encourage. It is very important to begin by working on ourselves, strengthening our love and compassion, before going on to help others.” (Sogyal Rinpoche, The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying)
