I am at peace

I am at peace because I allow my body to recharge

When I give my body downtime I am able to recharge and become more centered.
Because I get the rest I need and make relaxation a priority in my life I am abundantly peaceful. My tranquility surrounds my life and I am better able to handle all situations that come my way.

I am recharged when I take time to pursue my hobbies. Even though I am an adult, my playtime is important to me.Taking the time to go on a bike ride down the river trail or going out with friends makes me feel refreshed. I can release any stress that I may have because I can recharge myself.

My body requires rest and sleep to function at its highest potential. That’s why I take care of myself by making sure I get my rest. Resting my body allows my mind to be clear so I can embrace my peaceful state.

Tonight I will take my time in preparing for sleep instead of rushing through my routine. In this way, I can appreciate the process of preparing for rest.

I joyfully slip into my neatly made bed and breathe deeply several times to fully prepare my body for the rest I will receive.  As I drift off to sleep I can appreciate the stillness of the room and the stillness of my mind. When I awake, I feel renewed and my day starts off with peace.

Self-Reflection Questions:


1. Have I taken the time to play?
2. Did I get an appropriate amount of sleep last night?
3. What is my nighttime routine?

I find it easier to say no to distractions everyday

Because I have a plan for my life, it is easy to say no to distractions and I am able to stay on track.

In life, there are many pathways I may take, but I want to reach my goals and stay on track.  Saying no to distractions makes me feel empowered. 

It is important for me to put myself first.  This does not mean that I am selfish.  Putting myself first means I value my worth and that I understand that my priorities are worthwhile.

Sometimes it may not be easy to say no to a family member or friend who offers a diversion.  Remembering that I am saying no to a distraction and not to a loved one makes it easier for me to say no.

Distractions are most tempting to me when I am tired and overworked.  I recognize that this is my body and mind’s way of telling me to take a break.  Taking planned breaks to rejuvenate my mind makes it easier for me to stay focused on my goals.

Although distractions may arise everyday, these petty diversions do not tempt me.  I dismiss distractions because they steer me off course.  My direction is deliberate. Choosing to stay on track is a good decision.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. Do I occasionally let distractions steer me off course?
2. When I am tempted by a distraction, do I realize that my mind and body may be telling me I need a break?
3. How can I reflect on past feelings of accomplishment to help me say no to distractions?
 

Mind quotes

All men have a sweetness in their life. That is what helps them go on. It is towards that they turn when they feel too worn out.
