Mindful : February 2016
Set small, achievable goals We often make big goals without thinking through what’s actually achievable. Going from never exercis- ing to making a goal to exercise five times a week is likely setting yourself up for failure. A more achiev- able goal would be to walk for 20 minutes twice a day and schedule it into your calendar. Keep track of your accomplishments Because our brain is wired to focus on what we haven’t done, it’s easy to lose sight of what we have done. Take stock of what you’ve done in a day. Crossing some- thing off your to-do list, even the smallest of tasks, can go a long way in keep- ing your momentum going. Self- compassion it! Sometimes life is just hard. The ability to recognize a difficult moment and apply a caring attitude toward ourselves shuts down the inner-critic, creates stabil- ity and awareness, and helps redirect attention back to what matters. Remember: You, along with everyone else, deserve love too Feeling “less than” can eat away at our confidence. But if you sent out a search party, you would not find anyone more deserving of love than you. Stop, breathe, and let that mes- sage touch you for a few moments. Embrace difficult people Say what? Sometimes there are difficult people in our lives that we have to spend time with. See if you can recognize that underneath their irritating behavior is a person. Often when some- one is “being difficult” it’s because they are having a hard time themselves. They want to feel cared about and understood. Seeing this truth help brings us back into balance. how to live a mindful life 26 mindful February 2016
