    I just made a note to remember and trigger myself with the fact: “This moment I feel basically alright – right now.” Thank you, Rick Hanson

    I welcome the reassurance and warmth that: In this moment I feel basically alright here and now. Even though my body feels off kilter with a virus, I’m grateful that basically I am alright.
    It’s a reminder that makes me happy instead of imagining a worst case scenario that I believed earlier today.

    such a small investment, with a great return, thank you for your encouragement, and gentle approach ,
    Just listening to your calming voice iinspires me, and resonates with me. Breaking things down into small “tasks” or goals, makes it so much easier to carry through with.
    Namaste 🙏

    I have been going through a lot of physical pain owing to ouch nerves in my cervical area. Doing this simple exercise helped me to accept pain without restance and getting anxious about my ongoing physical pain. Physical pain happens. Suffering is an option 🙏🏽🙏🏽

    How important it is to be in tune with what our bodies are communicating to us! For so long I have ignored the messages that my body conveys. We help our body relax and live with less stress. Thank you for this useful practice. I look forward to noticing many times in the course of the day.

    This practice happened at a very good time for me. Today I’m feeling very anxious with it feeling short of breath. Telling myself that at this moment I am alright is so helpful. Listening to Dr. Hanson’s soothing voice is helping me accept things as they are. Thank you.

    Never before has the word, ‘alright, ‘ had such an impact on my mind and body. Thank you!

    Grateful for the reminder as I gave felt a vague sense of nonspecific anxiety this week. This is relaxing in service of hearing. I am hopeful.

      Typo! That’s in service of healing, although in service of hearing (Truth, resources, teachings…) works too.
