When we’re hurt by others, we have the choice to forgive or hold onto a grudge. We often think of forgiveness as a gift we give someone who has done us wrong, but forgiveness is just as impactful to the giver. The act of forgiving is good for your health. It can lower blood pressure, improve mental health, reduce stress, and even help you sleep better. When you’ve been hurt, it can be hard to let go, but with the right tools, it’s possible to learn to forgive and move on from things.

On this episode, Deloitte Chief Well-being Officer Jen Fisher talks with Dr. Fred Luskin, a world leading researcher and teacher about forgiveness and the author of the best-selling books, Forgive for Good and Forgive for Love, about why forgiveness is important, recognizing the need to forgive, and how to forgive.

Forgiveness is the process of moving from reactivity, pushing it away, negativity, and dislike to where you’re capable of acceptance, kindness, and goodwill primarily towards your own life, secondarily towards whomever it is or whatever it is that might have hurt you.

– Dr. Fred Luskin, author of best-selling books, Forgive for Good and Forgive for Love
