Just a few of the exercises inside:
Craft your own affirmations
If you’ve been feeling down for some time, you’re probably accustomed to hearing repetitive, cruel thoughts in your head about your character, the world you live in, or your future. One way to combat these thoughts is to develop and use affirmations. Affirmations are statements, or mantras, that can work directly against negative ruminations. This exercise helps you write your own.
Make a gratitude list
When your self-esteem needs a boost, bringing to mind what you are grateful for can go a long way toward helping you feel better about yourself and your life. Crafting this list isn’t about convincing yourself that everything’s great but about recognizing that there are some great things, no matter how small, that you can appreciate every day.
Meditate on stress
Stress can make us feel more tense and irritable, which in turn can cause some people to act out and say or do things that they didn’t mean to say or do. You may not know how to handle these emotions yet. That’s okay, and you don’t have to know what to do at that moment. This exercise can help you begin to cope when your stress level feels out of control.
