You are all loved. You are enough. You are so enough. It is amazing how enough you are.

I am in an out patient program for depression /anxiety. I have learned that anything that happens outside yourself is neutral and does not carry a negative or positive value until you assign it a value. When I am triggered I try to stop and evaluate the trigger and I try to assign neutral or positive meaning. I am fairly new to this and am new to this app. Hope this helps someone.

Taking a deep breath and becoming the observer, not just the participant. Observe my own feelings, other people and situations to better respond with kindness and calmness. My response is often what makes me feel good or bad - not the situation or another person. By observing first I can better respond as the person I want to be and feel better about the moment or interaction.

Every night, I set 3 intentions for the following day. They are written in dry erase on a frame next to my bed. I look at them again in the am when I brush my teeth. I keep those intentions as my primary focus for the day. I review how I did at night and give myself credit for what I accomplished. Some examples: water intake, open minded, healthy risks, listen, unplug, etc. Since they are written in plain sight, my husband sometimes asks about why I chose them or how I did.

The people you meet by "accident" end up becoming the most important people in your life.

You have to fight through some bad days, to earn the best days of your life. Don't give up.

"This is how it is right now" helps me settle and allow whatever is coming up. Hello self-doubt, hellos restlessness... good to see you 😌

In the shower today, take a few extra minutes to notice each body part as you wash it, and give it a little extra love. Even if it isn't 'perfect' your body serves and supports you every day. Scrub thoroughly, and consider something you love about every part of yourself.

When procrastination hits I grab it in my mind and say to myself 'don't think about it, just do it'

Try brushing your teeth using the opposite hand to what you'd normally use. You'll be able to appreciate the tiny movements in your fingers and wrist and build new neural pathways 😁

Whatever how bad happen in your life, just remember one thing that everything will be better. You undergo this is because God want you learn something from it.

When you get in bed notice how soft the sheets feel and how they rub against your skin and how the warmth envelops your body.

When I get carried away by thoughts I always come back to my breathing.

'Hyper-focusing' on whatever it is I'm doing at that moment, ignoring everything else. This is super hard when you're juggling so many roles, but it really is worth it when you succeed! ... Last night, after a long, tough day, I was feeling super cranky. Still, as I bathed my 3yo daughter, I made myself just focus on each part I was cleaning, focus on every word she was saying as she chatted nonstop like most preschoolers do. This made me appreciate her so much and my life as a mom.

Sit in a chair. Feel your bottom on the seat. Feel your feet on the floor. Listen to the background noises - be it the tick of a clock or the hum of the air conditioner. Focus on your breath as it enters and leaves your body. Notice each thought as it enters your mind and let it leave without pushing it out. This exercise can be done anywhere and helps me be mindful.

Being mindful is really tough therefore I've started to do 10 min of guided meditation in order to get user to train myself. Today the 10 min were surprising I was in :). I hope this is gonna help me to be more relaxed and stable. What about you?what's your opinion about mindfulness everyday and in meditation ? How long have you been doing this ? Are you satisfied?

I like to start my day by sitting in quiet meditation and setting my intentions.

I have to remind myself in the day to just pause... and tell myself things will work out or be okay no matter what I am doing & apply it to everything I do. Anxiety makes me feel I am failing somehow or getting defeated. Being overwhelmed at times makes me lose focus & it's not constructive. Now when I feel like I'm going nuts with panic it triggers my thought to pause. So it gives me a positive reaction to pause. Maybe I'm making progress?

Focusing on how my body feels and my senses brings me back to earth when my thoughts begin to go on tangents.

When you look at your life and feel at peace because of changes you’ve made, that’s recovery.

Remember we’re vibrational beings who can repel things into our alignment & existence. Everything that comes is a vibrational match to how you feel. Do not control conditions but come into alignment with them and never justify reasons by saying "just my luck, or this only happens to me" if things things don't go our way.
