    • This is so beautiful. Punctuate your day with a mini-meditation with one minute of awareness of your thoughts, feelings, and sensations; one minute of focused attention on breathing; and one minute of awareness of the body as a whole.Be selfish. Do one thing today just because it makes you happy.

  1. “Don’t wander in the past”, It’s amazing how many times in the day that this can happen. Unknowingly, my mind will wander backward and when it does, I speak loudly and clearly to myself. I ask myself where I am at this very moment and what am I doing right now. This brings me back to the present and I have found this practice to heal me from past pain.
