The Best You Can Ask of Yourself

Personalized support for learning how to integrate mindfulness into your life. Delivered fresh everyday by our world renowned experts. Choose meditation duration:

Hi, welcome back to

your Daily Mindfulness.

In today's session, we're going

to talk about doing your best.

So many of us get caught in extra

stress in our lives because we

feel like we're not doing enough.

We feel like we could be doing more.

And I think it's really important

to remember that doing our best,

whatever it is we're capable of

in this moment, is quite literally

the best we can ask of ourselves.

Now, you might get caught up

in a thought of, well, what

if my best isn't good enough.

And if that becomes your narrative,

then you may need to reorganize how

you perceive yourself in relationship

to the world and your goals.

So many of us create extra,

extra stress because our current

best is not our future best.

And we can use a higher standard, of

course, to inspire how we show up in

the present moment, but we can't be

or do more than our current capacity.

And that's a really

important thing to remember.

So what do we do?

Well, we do our best.

We let go.

And we trust that our current best is

the best that we can do in this moment.

And this is the integration of

both growth and fulfillment.

We offer ourselves fully to the

moment in as much capacity as we

can, and we trust the process.

We let go.

We release.

So today, as you orient yourself toward

your work, your relationships, anything

that's important to you, what would

it be like to really recognize that

the best you can bring to the table,

whatever that is for you right now, is

the very best you can ask of yourself.

Try that out, see how it helps.

Thank you for your practice and let's

settle in for today's meditation.
