I am happy and content. I focus on my top priorities and let go of nonessentials.
I spend time with family and friends. I share mealtimes and weekends with my loved ones. I engage in meaningful conversations and silly games. I read to my children and go on road trips with my pals.
I do meaningful work. I find a career that enables me to develop my strengths and help others.
I fill my leisure time with enriching activities. I turn off the TV and cut back on social media. I read books and work on hobbies.
I give generously. Making others happy brings me joy. I volunteer at my local hospital or animal shelter. I do favors for neighbors. I bake cookies for my coworkers.
I take care of my mental and physical wellbeing. I love and respect myself. I treat myself with kindness and compassion. I eat nutritious foods and work out each day. I see my doctor regularly for screenings and checkups.
I cultivate my spirituality. I mediate and pray. I read inspiring texts and scriptures. I visit faith communities online and in my neighborhood to find a place where I feel like I belong.
I value quality over quantity. I savor small pleasures. I slow down in the morning, so I can watch the sun rise and listen to birds sing. I streamline my wardrobe and streaming services.
Today, I simplify my routines. I free up my time for the activities I love. I consume less and enjoy life more.
