Look after your own well-being by giving yourself some positive feedback. Think back over the day. What did you say that you really liked? What did you say that really mattered? It may have been open and honest, it may have been kind, or it may have been thoughtful. You may have made a comment that really connected with someone else, or that gave them some positive feedback, or that caused them to feel good. What did you do that was positive and really mattered? You may have shown consideration on the road. You may have offered someone some help, you may have smiled at someone, or shown appreciation. Well done, you.
