1. Meditation – Taking a few moments to sit, stare ahead, and detach is a highly effective tool for clearing the mind. Don’t be discouraged if you can’t stop your thoughts, that’s normal! Remember that meditation is not a contest but a personal practice that will help you over time. Persistence will pay off.
2. Daily Reflection – At the end of every day, while laying in bed take a few moments to reflect on the events of your day. Take a moment to recognize any lessons learned. Remember your favorite part of the day. This will help focus your awareness on the positive aspects of your day.
3. Goal Writing – When taking on corporations, the government or your apathetic friends, we can become overwhelmed with a feeling of hopelessness. Though our actions may seem small, they do have an effect. Choose goals for yourself that you can accomplish in your own community. Seeing the physical results of your actions will only spur you on to bigger goals.
