Here are some things to say to yourself when you are stressed:

  1. This is a moment of suffering.
  2. Life is full of suffering.
  3. Let me be kind to myself in this moment.

(From: ‘Mindful Compassion’ by Paul Gilbert and Choden (2014)

To calm yourself:

  1. Place right hand on heart.
  2. Place left hand on abdomen.
  3. Take 3 deep calming breaths.

(From: ‘Brainstorm: The Power and Purpose of the Teenage Brain’ by Dan Siegel.)

Once you truly know that life is difficult, then it is difficult no longer
