When ever I get embarrassed I just think "this is irrational, everyone will have forgotten about it tomorrow and I'm sure this won't haunt me life, I bet tomorrow I will be laughing at this"

I want you to spread your arms out to the side, as far as they can go just keep stretching and now stop, look at that. That is your wingspan, those hands are what you can use to fly with, to write an amazing essay, to score a 3 pointer. Those same arms can be used to stretch out and hug someone, to help feed and walk your pets. That's only one part of your body, you are an incredible human who makes a difference just by reaching out and touching someone. Make sure you never forget that.

In therapy today I wrote a letter to my sister expressing my feelings and emotions around her lack of empathy for myself and others. I realized before I wrote the letter I was angry, my therapist made me read the letter out loud and pointed out that the word angry never showed up. Our anger is just telling a quick reaction to underlying emotions like sadness and concern.

I have a daily journal I write in. And I also have another journal that I draw or write uplifting quotes in. Coloring while listening to happy upbeat music really helps especially when you are stressed.

I always try to remember the moments when I was happy, and why. No matter if things have changed, everything change, is life. The important thing is to realize that you can be happy. You were happy in that moment, and you will be happy in another moment. Spread love, and you will receive love.

I medidate and use a breathing app. Doing so helps me remember to breathe when facing an anxious situation so I have enough time to make a rational decision.

I'm working on it each day. I stop what I'm doing and use a timer for 5 minutes to just be present. Sometimes I notice memories or feelings hovering in my mind or pain or stiffness in my body.

I find it easier to be mindful when I'm at home, at work I struggle so I use my cigarette breaks to bring myself back to a quiet just-for-me-moment

A few minutes, purposefully set aside to sit quiet, breath relaxed and easy, to allow my body and mind to just "be"

I pray about the good things in my life for that day. If you aren't religious just write them down. It is so easy to forget the good things in my life. I have to remind myself. Daily.

I tell myself that I meant for something and change will happen I'll be okay and better but so far I just can't tell myself that much often

I decided today that my intention for yoga class today was that I was doing it for me. Not for anyone or anything other than my health and peace of mind. It was very relaxing to stop thinking outside myself for a whole 60 minutes.
