I am calm and collected. I look on the bright side. I view challenges as opportunities to learn and grow. I focus on solutions. I notice the pleasant things that happen each day and cultivate a sense of gratitude.
I slow down. I take refreshing breaks while I am working. I tackle one task at a time. I make deliberate choices rather than rushing around.
I shorten my to-do list. I establish priorities that align with my values. I manage my time and set realistic expectations for myself.
I get plenty of rest. Adequate sleep makes me more resilient. I go to bed early and wake up feeling alert and eager to start my day.
I work out. Physical activity strengthens my body and mind. A trip to the gym or a game of tennis lifts my spirits and soothes my senses.
I reach out for support. I talk about my feelings and experiences with family and friends. I consider counseling if I need additional resources.
I help others. Sharing my blessings builds my confidence and brightens my perspective. I feel more connected. My troubles seem less overwhelming.
I find comfort in my faith. I cherish myself and others. I recognize my power and purpose. I remember that hardships are temporary. The world seems like a friendlier place when I take care of my spiritual wellbeing.
Today, I cope with daily pressures constructively. I manage stress by making positive changes in my attitude and environment.
