I stop and take a break during moments of transition. I clarify my thinking and renew my energy.
I focus on my breath. I screen out distracting noises and nagging concerns. I feel calm as I inhale deeply and exhale slowly.
I check my posture. I lift my chest and lower my shoulders. I scan my body to find areas of tension. I relax stiff muscles and massage any sore spots. I walk around or do some stretching exercises.
I observe my thoughts. I accept my feelings and validate my experiences. I regard myself with love and compassion.
I visualize soothing and uplifting images. I picture my loved ones or my favorite vacation spot. I imagine sandy beaches or snowy mountains.
I repeat inspiring affirmations. I choose positive words and encouraging messages. I speak slowly and clearly. I smile as I look at myself in the mirror.
I use pauses to prepare for challenging tasks. I give myself a friendly pep talk. I concentrate on my purpose and boost my confidence.
I use pauses to manage stress. I instantly feel lighter.
I use pauses to make my life more meaningful and enjoyable. They help me to understand and apply my personal strengths. I remember how much I have to be grateful for. I feel closer to others and accomplish more with less effort.
Today, I increase my awareness and strengthen my powers of concentration. Pausing throughout the day helps me to relax and recharge.
