- Have a special, beautiful, notebookin which you write down the Mirror Exercise.
- Set time in your schedule to do this practice and commit to it!
- Create the perfect space for you to practice this exercise: make sure it is clean and pleasant for you. You can decorate it with a scented candle or incense that you can light when you are doing the exercise, flowers, and plants- whatever brings you joy and happiness.
- Eliminate all distractions. Leave your phone in another room, turn off the TV, and allow yourself to have privacy in these moments where you are focusing only on loving yourself.
