#7 of 10 helpful, constructive, nurturing ideas.


I write reminders on my windows and mirrors about breathing, nurturing, welcoming, remembering.

I bought a chalk-marker, the kind that washes off windows and glass. I have decorated windows and mirrors with cheerful greetings. When I come in the door, I see “Welcome home kind soul” on my closet door. I put a reminder at my kitchen sink to focus on “nurture.” In my bedroom on the mirror, I listed my blessings and the names of my friends and family, and I started a nightly ritual of meditating on each name before bed. This helps me sleep more soundly.
