“As your day unfolds, be mindful of your thoughts. Whenever you find yourself indulging in stinking thinking, simply think again! This may take practice; most humans are compulsive thinkers. Daily meditation and short breaks throughout the day in which you train your mind to shut off are highly recommended.
Be mindful of every word you utter. Are you speaking your truth? Are your words honest or full of gossip? Are you speaking out of turn, letting your ego get in the way? Is what you choose to say relevant or necessary? Are they words of kindness and wisdom? Learn to discern when it is best to speak and when it is best to remain silent. Be conscious of your listening skills. Do you allow others to finish their sentences? Are you so busy trying to be heard that you have lost the skill of listening?”
