- It’s easy to live inside our heads instead of living in the here and now.
- Nothing is more valuable than the present moment because you can never get it back.
- It’s so important to spend time with loved ones, no matter what species!
- Getting caught up in planning the future is easy, but the future does not exist yet. Focus on the future and you will miss the present.
- Regular meditation practice can change your life for the better. It can reduce anger, increase patience, and even improve your physical wellbeing.
- Only when you manage your relationship with the self well, can you manage relationships with others.
- It’s much easier to see the good in life when you’re around positive people.
- Even when you think someone is overreacting, it’s important not to invalidate their feelings. Seek understanding and work through the problem together.
- Everyone deserves respect for their feelings. We cannot be flawless.
- Although you can’t demand respect from someone, you can extract yourself from situations where you are not respected.
- Giving up isn’t always the answer, but sometimes you have to walk away, especially when you lose your sense of self.
