Tuesday, May 5

Today, is Tuesday, May 5, 2020. The changing clouds bring changing weather

While we are settled in uncertainty, we can recognize the love and kindness around us, always.

During these times of uncertainty, structured routines help. As we progress, we are adapting our daily anchoring message for you, your coworkers, your loved ones, and your community.

Today’s Inspiration: A Quote from Michael Jordan

“I have failed over and over and over again in my life, and that is why I succeed.”

Here’s what you can do today, right now, during transitions, after listening to the news or when going to sleep:

  • Roll your shoulders back, smile to yourself, & relax your jaw.
  • Take slow deep belly breaths, allowing your stomach to rise with each breath in and relax with each breath out. You may find that each breath gets better and better. Allow your shoulders to relax on each exhale.
  • Explore Humming Bee breathing
    1. Close your eyes
    2. Gently cover your ears with your hands
    3. Begin to hum, notice the vibration

Anchor yourself with this daily statement:    

“I am [*Name*]. I am doing what I can to be helpful. I love myself because I have kindness and love in my heart and soul. I am part of the global community and we are all working together to get through this. This is temporary. We are moving forward together. As I think about those I love and care for, I send loving kindness out to all people.”

 With gratitude and appreciation for all beings,
