Spending a few minutes alone each day allows you to assess how tired and stressed you are — information you can then use to plan the rest of the day. “We need little bits of privacy to be able to connect to our inner selves,” says Powers. Set you Chime Timer & Clock by going to the Countdown timer and programming it for 10 minutes. The Digital Zen Chime Timer & Clock’s long-resonating Tibetan bell-like chime makes ending your meditation a beautiful experience – its progressive chimes relax and rejuvenate you.
Take a walk in the park, or even tend to your houseplants. As Powers explains, “Spending time with the natural world nourishes your entire body.”
When you do experience emotional upsets, be gentle with yourself. Show compassion by giving yourself room to breathe, perhaps repeating a calming affirmation.
