“Becoming more patient involves opening your heart to the present moment, even if you don’t like it. If you are stuck in a traffic jam, late for an appointment, opening to the moment would mean catching yourself building a mental snowball before your thinking got out of hand and gently reminding yourself to relax.” Richard Carlson, Don't sweat the small stuff ... and it's all small stuff. 

Try: When you catch yourself building up your stress with your thinking, say 'Drop the snowball' then pause and re-focus on the moment.

Yesterday's Daily Bell
A lot of us peer into the uncertain future as though into a fog. If there is a God, then maybe one of the most valuable gifts s/he gave us is not knowing everything that’s waiting for us.  If so, perhaps a divine entity is laughing at us as we peer into tomorrow and is wondering why we don't pay more attention to today.

Try: If you spend too much time in the future, stop now and then to check in with what you are seeing, feeling, hearing, touching right now in this real moment.

How I use the Daily Bell
"The daily bell sets me up for the day.   I read it on waking and it helps me to start my day in a positive, kind, compassionate way.   I remind myself all the time about what I read. It is a great help in self regulation." KL
