How self-compassion can boost your performance

We often focus too much on our performance, forgetting the importance of our mental health. As a result, things start going badly, and we begin to feel anxious, unmotivated, or lacking in strength. We lose our inspiration or our ability to concentrate. And that's when we experience the most frustration. We want to do our best, we know how important it is to give our 100%, but something is coming in the way of doing it.

Let's imagine the following example: Ana feels exhausted. In a few days, she has a deadline for an important project. She is finding it increasingly difficult to concentrate and no longer knows what strategy to use. Thoughts like "you won't make it" or "you always get assigned impossible projects" keep running through her mind.
