Happiness Practice: A Little Self Recognition
Set a timer for 5 minutes and either close your eyes and meditate on or take out a piece of paper and jot down everything you are proud of yourself for accomplishing, engaging with, or habits you've created. It can be anything from solving an insane mathematical equation at work to making time to prep the coffee the night before so you wake up to the beautiful smell of java. All the big, the small, and everything between! Taking time to recognize all the good you do in your life is crucial to strengthening that badass self-compassion, love, and empathy toward others. Plus, you're amazing and should be recognized!
