Give this a try…
1. Set a Daily Intention
What do you want to feel or experience today? Different from a goal, an intention is focusing on what you want to attract and create.
2. Be Mindful
Bring your full attention to the present moment, noticing the full experience. You may be mindful for only 30 seconds at a time, but that’s a great place to begin.
3. Practice Self-Compassion
We waste a lot of energy making ourselves feel bad. Self-compassion means loving yourself as you are, rather than how you measure up to someone else’s standards. The amount of self-compassion you feel has a significant impact on your health and wellbeing. People who are kind and compassionate to themselves experience more motivation and satisfaction.
