Set an alarm for two hours from now. Use your phone, a kitchen timer, whatever works. When the alarm goes off, do this:
- Take five deep breaths. Visualize the stress of the last two hours leaving your body, and fresh energy for the next two hours entering your body.
- Look in a mirror. Say "I love you. You're doing the best that you can."
- Take 30 seconds to say something nice to someone, either in person or via text or email.
- Set your alarm for two more hours. Repeat.
Try it. Just for today.
