Recognizing that we’re not alone in our experience. Remembering that negative thoughts, emotions, sensations, and states of being are natural. Getting comfortable with the fact that our life is one of perfect imperfection. Being cognizant of our emotions and open to seeing ourselves a little more clearly.
Observing aspects of our experience with a gentle curiosity. Noticing, but not obsessing over, negative thoughts, emotions, sensations, and states of being. Growing the connection between our body and mind. Improving our ability to respond, rather than react, by pausing to think critically and creatively.
Making an effort to treat ourselves well. Being understanding, nonjudgmental, and forgiving about our past, present, and future actions. Recognizing the separation between our thoughts and who we are. Contributing to our health and wellness by practicing self-care, self-soothing, and positive self-talk.
