  • After I put away the last of the breakfast dishes, I will play one uplifting song and dance around my living room

Tiny Habits for Resilience

  • Note: all my tiny habits help massively with resilience because I celebrate, which means throughout the day I get these moments of happiness

  • After I touch a door to open it as I am moving around the house, I will tell myself “You’ve got this”
