Mindfulness Practice for the Week

1.  Each morning when you awaken, set a clear intention to be kind to yourself today.
2.  Begin to notice the number of times each day you judge or criticize yourself.  How does it feel in your body when you notice this?  Be careful not to judge yourself for judging.  Simply notice, and then make a choice to let the judgment go, returning to your intention of self-kindness.
3.  Practice saying three kind, acknowledging statements to yourself each day. They can be simple, e.g.  "I am grateful that I ate a nutritious lunch today", or "I was really present for my son this morning."  What is most important is not the content of what you say but the process of beginning a new pattern of speaking to yourself with kindness.
4.  Practice "self-blessing" each night before bed.  For example, "May I be peaceful," "May I be safe and protected,"  "May I be healthy,"  "May I be happy,"  Through using these practices you are beginning to re-teach yourself your own loveliness.  --A Year of Living Mindfully, Richard Fields, Ph.D. - Editor

Loving kindness to ourselves helps us give that same loving kindness to others.

Finding Balance

Just as your car runs more smoothly and requires less energy to go faster and farther when the wheels are in perfect alignment, you perform better when your thoughts, feelings, emotions, goals, and values are in balance.

― Brian Tracy

What is hope? It is an expectation of a good that is yet to be/ It is an inner knowing that the future holds positive things. It is trust that no matter the current circumstances, the days to come will reveal a renewed capacity to allow joy and happiness into your soul. -- Alan Wolfelt, Center for Loss.
