Ending Ritual for Tasks
We don’t have to wait for the end of the day to celebrate. We can do it after anything we do.
The practice is a simple ritual: pause when you’re done with something, before you move on to the next thing. Reflect. And celebrate.

Instead of starting the day with a list of tasks to get done, start it by identifying 1-3 things that would make this day an absolute victory if you were to do them.
If you can get those done, it will be a big victory for your goals. And then look back on it at the end of the day and celebrate what you can.
It can be tough to feel in control...feel you can manage your emotions and come out of 'all this' in one piece when life shakes us up.
Getting started & building momentum are sometimes the toughest things to do.
And these 2 steps can give us a huge start to getting back to life...build us up to be in a position to take further steps of shifting our thinking patterns and practicing resilience:
We want people to be less rude, to do certain things, to avoid doing certain things, and to change their lives, eventually feeling frustrated when we realize that we cannot control them and it is impossible to change anyone.
The core error we make all the time is that we want others to be in a certain way, which almost never happens. The other alternative which hardly anyone follows is to let others be whatever they want to be and be at peace even if they are annoying.
We normally have a tense, fidgety attitude towards whatever we are doing. We grasp and lean towards our tasks and exert ourselves unnecessarily, and even things that shouldn’t give us undue stress, end up being stressful.
