1. Flow experience- is the mental state of operation in which a person in an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and success in the process of the activity. In flow the emotions are not just contained and channeled, but positive, energized, and aligned with the task at hand.
Example: To be caught in the ennui of depression or the agitation of anxiety is to be barred from flow. The hallmark of flow is a feeling of spontaneous joy, even rapture, while performing a task.
Align with what feels right for you.

Respect can be a specific feeling of regard for the actual qualities of the one respected (e.g., "I have great respect for her judgment"). It can also be conduct in accord with a specific ethic of respect.
6. Self-esteem - to reflect a person's overall evaluation of his or her own worth. It encompasses beliefs (for example, "I am competent") and emotions such as triumph, despair, pride and shame. Self-esteem can apply specifically to a particular dimension (for example, "I believe I am a good writer, and feel proud of that in particular") or have global extent (for example, "I believe I am a good person, and feel proud of myself in general").
7. Assumption #1 - Time management refers to a range of skills, tools, and techniques used to manage time when accomplishing specific tasks, projects and goals. We create those certain goals for ourselves to reach.
8. Assumption #2 - We are the owners of our time, not the slaves. Time is a one-dimensional quantity used to sequence events, to quantify the durations of events and the intervals between them. Time is quantified in comparative terms (such as longer, shorter, faster, quicker, slower) or in numerical terms using units (such as seconds, minutes, hours, days).
9. Assumption #3 - We should and must handle the amount of "stuff" that's being imported to us everyday. No matter what it is or how big or small it is, it does take our time to deal with them. With those "stuff" we either: do it, file it, or trash it.
10. Assumption #4 - What is the best use of our time? Time is a unique resource, everyone is given 24 hours each day. How you invest that time is a major factor in how you feel about your life. We can think of time as a tool to reach our goals. As with many tools, if you want to use time effectively it may require some training, or retraining , determination and practice. Even though the term "time management" is used a great deal there really is no such thing. Using time effectively is actually a matter of your own personal management. Time goes by at the same rate - you can’t speed it up or slow it down. There is no way to control time. The best you can do is to take charge of yourself in the framework of time investing yourself in those things that matter most in your life.
Mindfulness can help you improve how you feel about yourself. It is important to understand that self-acceptance only comes from within and is very closely related to self-esteem. Self acceptance is more about what you do and what value or worth you place on yourself. Self-esteem on the other hand is more to do with what you believe about yourself and what you believe you are capable of doing or becoming.
Complete self acceptance is not something that is easy to achieve. This becomes even more difficult by a society that attaches a great deal of importance to appearances and the endless messages and images that we come across every day in magazines, newspapers, billboards and on TV.
Mindfulness is about...
