“Power is so characteristically calm, that calmness in itself has the aspect of strength.”

Edward George Bulwer-Lytton (1803-1873)

Daily, multiple times per day we need to take a mental break. It doesn’t matter if you are twelve or ninety-two, we all need this.

It is a simple process. I know you are busy and have a lot on your mind. There are many important personal and professional things to attend to. Yet you need a moment to relax, refresh and feel the good that surrounds you.

It’s good for your mind and body to reflect. Take a few seconds to reflect on each of these thoughts. It will add some lift to your day.

–What is something near you that you appreciate having?

–Who is someone who loves you and is there for you?

–What about your health is good?

–What is something you recently did that you enjoyed?

–What is something you find humor in?

–What can you do to help someone, and how would you feel when you do it?

–Relax your mind and body and notice how peaceful that is?

–What do you have coming up that you are looking forward to?

–Who do you get to see today at home or work that you really like?

–What contribution have you recently made?

–What vacation did you take that you greatly enjoyed-and why?

–What is one thing you can do today to take even better care of yourself than you usually do?

If you don’t take exquisite care of yourself–who will?

Take a moment to reflect on one or more of these positive focused thoughts regularly. Print this list out and keep it where you will see it daily. Choose one and then spend a little time thinking about it and the richness these types of thoughts bring in to your life.

Take a moment today to pause and reflect.

Yes, there is covid in the world.

Yes, you could have more money or toys.

Yet life still has richness, beauty and wonder.

Take the time to notice all the good surrounding you.

As you go through your day today take pauses to reflect.

Don’t live today accidentally. Intentionally look for the good in your life.

When you see it, pause for a moment and feel gratitude for the good
