Staying healthy takes time and attention. These reflections may help you keep your mind on the positive side of life.
Did I read or listen to some uplifting message before I started my day - for example, a poem, a song, a message?
When I felt negative, what did I think and do?
Did I stop for one minute's meditation every hour, to control the ‘traffic' of the mind?
Did I stay in the present moment and remain mindful of the quality of my actions?
What did I feel about myself today?
Did I change negative thoughts about myself into positive ones?
Did I remember other people's criticism of me or the happy things I know about myself?
Did I list or review the special things I want to achieve?
Did I tell my family how much I value and love them?
Did I help anyone today?
At the end of the day, was I able to say to myself, "I have this virtue (for example, happiness) in me?"
