Today, when I notice myself reaching for my phone or some other way to avoid a feeling I just had, I will pause, turn, and face the feeling.

I will pause to let myself feel that feeling—not just in my head, but all the way down to my gut.

I will pause to let my body respond to that feeling however it wants—crying, screaming, laughing, smiling.

I will pause to appreciate the kind thing I just did for myself.
