Those are some great tips. Most of them I already have a habit of doing. I'm sure we would all be happier if we followed this advise. Thanks.

I love these ideas. Some of them I need reminding about such as spending the time to take 3 deep breaths - that helps so much to ground and focus myself.

I'm happy to say I do a lot of the things you mention, but I particularly love how you have made this list holistic - it has ideas to nourish the body, mind and spirit.

THanks so much!
