New Month Messages To Tell Yourself In The Mirror
In this digital age, wherein we face screens more than people, we rob ourselves of social and emotional development. Dr. Tara Well, a pioneer of mirror meditation, conducted mirror gazing experiments in which participants meditated on their reflections for two to three minutes. The sessions revealed the participants' inner critics and insecurities. It gave them an awareness of their real emotions, and it made them realize they need self-compassion.
With these benefits, do you want to integrate mirror meditation into your self-care regimen? Say these new month messages or our morning affirmations and take time to reflect in front of the mirror.

Positive New Month Quotes To Move On From The Past
Do you have regrets from the previous month? Since our greatest critic is ourselves, practicing self-compassion should be a priority, especially when overthinking the past. Aside from mirror gazing, we can increase self-compassion through mindfulness.
