May my meditation be pleasing to him, as I rejoice in the Lord. Psalm 104:34
Take a five-minute break. Find a quiet space. Sit calmly. Close your eyes. Breathe deeply. Intentionally become aware of your strengths, weaknesses, dreams, struggles, joys and issues. Reflect on how to improve your mental/emotional wellness.
So whether you eat or drink, do it all for the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31

Therefore encourage one another and build each other up. 1 Thessalonians 5:11
Write a message of thanks to a family member. Say something nice to your professor. Compliment your co-worker on something. Thank your boss for something. Call a loved one. Do something nice for a stranger today.
With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation. Isaiah 12:3

This is the day the Lord has made. Rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24
Rejoice in the day of rest by claiming out loud in the morning: "Today is the day that the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it." Spend time with God in prayer.
