Try it! As soon as or twice day-to-day, for 10 to 20 minutes (yes, you do have the time - you just have to make it), sit in a quiet location, close your eyes, relax your muscle tissues, roll your head, neck, and shoulders, and breathe deeply. On every exhale, repeat your mantra. If other thoughts attempt to invade, says Dr. Benson, inform yourself, "Oh, well," and ... exact same outlook on life as you do this will feed your positivism. Many instances, friendships are held onto out of obligation, even when they are not conducive to having an optimistic, gorgeous, and appealing way of life.
