I am peaceful and relaxed.
I build a strong support network. I talk about my feelings with family and friends. I share laughter and fun activities. I ask for help when I need it.
I move my body. Working out uses up restless energy and takes my mind off my troubles. I feel more cheerful after a visit to my gym.
I give myself some downtime. I set realistic expectations that keep me from becoming overwhelmed. I take breaks between meetings and errands. I sit down to eat. I use up my vacation days.
I enjoy the great outdoors. Spending time in nature makes me happier and healthier. I take a walk around the block during my lunch hour. I go hiking or play golf on weekends.
I experiment with different relaxation methods to find what works for me. I might be satisfied with soaking in a warm bath or drinking a cup of tea.
I simplify my life. I cut back on my commitments. I clear away clutter. I consume less.
I replace negative thoughts with positive affirmations. I collect quotes that comfort and inspire me or invent my own.
I practice my spiritual faith. Prayer helps me to focus on my purpose and overcome my fears.
Today, I let go of tension and frustrations. I cultivate gratitude and patience. I accept things as they are. I am calm and composed.
