Healing flows through my body

Healing flows through my body when I take a night out to do things I enjoy

Relaxation is important to my well-being. I take a night off each month to do something I enjoy because I know this leads to greater health and productivity. When I work, I do so with all my heart, and when I relax, I allow myself to be equally present and engaged with the activity at hand.

Sometimes I choose to watch a movie with friends. Sometimes I relish a hike through the woods. Other times, I simply prefer to stay home, curled up with a book.

Whatever I choose to do, taking time for myself renews my energy. When I go back to my routine tasks, I find myself more focused and productive, with a better perspective on the stressors in my life.

I am better able to deal with challenges that come up in my daily life when I have time set aside for relaxation. I am unapologetic about taking this time out because I know relaxation makes me a better person, more competent and better able to meet the needs of those around me when I return.

It doesn't matter what others tell me is a good use of my relaxation time. The point is that I, myself, thoroughly enjoy whatever I am doing and I engage in my own personal relaxation wholeheartedly, without guilt.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. What do I enjoy doing most?
2. When was the last time I allowed myself to do something relaxing just for myself?
3. Which upcoming evening can I plan to set aside for relaxation and fun?

I enjoy taking time to help others in the workplace

My workplace is a community.  Because I choose to be part of this community, I want it to be a warm place.

Finding ways to bring happiness into my workplace brings me joy.  My workplace is more harmonious when I collaborate with my coworkers. 

My coworkers and I are a team.  I am bonded with them.  If there is a way for me to help the people I work with I will take action.

By working together, we can solve problems faster, come up with innovative ideas, and bring joy to each other’s lives.  There are so many simple ways to bring positivity into the workplace. 

When there is a new employee in the office, I can teach them a new task.  When I go to lunch, I can invite someone new to accompany me.  When someone is experiencing stress, I can find a thoughtful way to help them.  When I get coffee, I can pick some up for a coworker.  And when the paper tray in the copy machine is empty, I can take a few brief moments to fill it.

Recognizing that small actions throughout the day can make my workplace a more enjoyable environment inspires me to act in a helpful way.  These actions bring me pleasure.

In my life, it is important to accomplish my goals.  When I am at work, I recognize that my coworkers and I often share the same goals.  It is such a blessing to have people who are moving in the same direction as me.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. Am I thankful to be part of my workplace community?
2. What goals do my coworkers and I share?
3. What actions can I make today that will bring happiness to a coworker?
