Tip#1: Maintain healthy boundaries with your outer world. Filter out what does not serve you well and incorporate more of what doe serve you well. Practice unconditional love for yourself. Free yourself from judgement and your inner critic. Love yourself as you would a best friend and nurture your mind, body and spirit. Remind yourself that the quality of your thoughts reflects the quality of your life. Purify those thoughts to bring out the very best in you.
