I make my world more tranquil and harmonious.
I stay calm. Peace begins within me. I slow down. I savor small pleasures.
I take deep breaths and count to ten when I am feeling stressed.
I listen attentively. I let others know that I care about what they have to say. I focus on their message, instead of interrupting or thinking about how I want to respond.
I communicate openly. I speak kindly and gently. I set boundaries and let go of judgements. I build trust.
I resolve conflicts promptly and respectfully. I search for common.ground. I negotiate compromises. I am quick to forgive others and myself.
I give generously. I create goodwill by sharing my time, talents, and other resources.
I reach out when I see somebody struggling. I volunteer in my community and support worthy causes. I help my neighbors and do favors for my coworkers.
I speak out when I see somebody being harmed. I have the courage to stand up for my principles, even if it makes me unpopular. I can help stop bullying and discrimination.
I cultivate compassion. I want others to be happy and successful. Even when someone treats me badly, I try to understand what they are going through. I can disapprove of their actions without devaluing them.
Today, I encourage peace and unity. I am calm and content. I help others and myself to heal.
