3. Just for today, I will not be angry.
If a typical morning for you involves being cut off by another driver on your way to work, you probably default to anger. Why not just take a deep breath, relax, forgive and let it go. What will you achieve by remaining angry and cutting him off to “get back at him?” Nothing. All that you’ll end up with is an elevated heart rate (and more stress!) which is not good for your well-being.
4. Just for today, I will do my work honestly.
Doing your work honestly brings more purpose and meaning into your life. When you do your work honestly and with purpose, at the end of the day you’ll feel good about yourself and more fulfilled about your work.
5. Just for today, I will be kind to every living thing.
What you give out, you receive back tenfold. Be nice, loving and caring to everyone, even if it’s not your favorite person in the world. We all deserve love and kindness. At the end of the day we will feel better about ourselves for bringing some light and love into someone else’s day, even if it’s just for a moment.
Even though it might seem a bit overwhelming to live by all five of this principles every single day, you can start today by trying just one. You will be much more happier at the end of the day, I promise.
