2-minute self-appreciation break
Take some time to appreciate yourself. This is a really simple, quick and easy exercise that can end up being quite fun! Take a few deep breaths, in and out slowly, eyes closed, and think of things that you appreciate about yourself. This can be anything from character traits to achievements, however small, as long as it is positive. It can be thoughts about the positive aspects of your character, a good deed you have done etc. For example: You successfully managed to do your morning yoga You are thoughtful and caring to animals You listened, when someone needed someone to listen to and a shoulder to cry on You made someone laugh today And lastly, do away with perfectionism. Do not strive for perfection, because it cannot be attained. Instead focus on you, what you have achieved at this moment in time.
