The Practices That Help Me Feel Good Every Day

I recently talked to Thrive Global about how I thrive, sharing the spiritual and self-care practices I use to feel good every day.

As I say in Super Attractor, once you feel good, you start to easily attract what you desire. When we make feeling good our priority, everything else can flow — so in this post I want to share my tips for how to feel good and let go of stress!

The practices that help me feel good

Check out this video where I share my spiritual and self-care practices that help me feel good! Below the video I break down the details.

My new morning routine

My morning is very routinized now, because Oliver is my alarm clock and he doesn’t miss a beat! One of the great blessings my son has given me is organization.

Before I became a mom, I had a pretty free-flowing style. I would work at different times. I’d exercise at random times. Now I’m on a good schedule because he’s on a good schedule, and it’s been working really well for me.

One of the biggest benefits of being more organized is that I’ve actually found more time for my spiritual practices and self-care, because I take advantage of every pocket of time.

After waking up with Oliver and handing him over to my husband for the morning bottle, I go up to my office, get comfortable on my sofa and practice Transcendental Meditation (TM) for 20 minutes.

If you don’t have a TM practice, you can do a mantra meditation. One option is to sit with your eyes closed, silently repeating the mantra Sat Nam (“truth identified”) for 10 to 20 minutes, and then resting with your eyes closed for 2 minutes afterward.

You can also try this simple Kundalini mantra practice.

Clearing anger, rage and anxiety

Then I do another 20-minute Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) meditation, also known as tapping. I’m tapping on rage right now, which is good because it’s making me feel free, setting me up to win and healing my body.

We have so much unfelt rage and anger inside and then we manifest that in our body, because we don’t want to deal with that unconscious rage. One book that’s been helping me a lot is The Mindbody Prescription by Dr. John Sarno. (I’ll write more about this topic in the future.)

If this resonates with you, then devote some time each morning to clear anxiety, anger or rage. You can do this with tapping or meditating, or you can just get all your feelings onto the page by writing in your journal. When you do this, the rest of your day will be hooked up!

Here’s a video by Brad Yates for tapping on rage. Remember to take full responsibility for your well-being when you tap, because unexpected emotions can come up.

My self-care practices

Physical movement and meditation are two big components of my self-care practice. If I have the time, I’ll take an hour to exercise in a way that makes me feel good. I mix it up — I do yoga, I do Pilates, I take sculpting classes, I go for walks.

My exercise secret is to move  in some way every day, which gives me a lot of freedom. (Exercising is typically part of my morning routine, too. Check out my IG Stories highlight for more.)

Another way I practice self-care is by doing my second 20-minute TM meditation in the afternoon.

But if you don’t have much time to spare, self-care doesn’t have to take long. It can consist of eating a meal slowly or taking a 10-minute walk without your phone.

Sometimes self-care just means gazing out the window. That seems strange, but it’s probably one of the most beneficial things you can do. It can be very meditative.

Make feeling good a practice

Super Attractor: Methods for Manifesting a Life Beyond Your Wildest Dreams, by Gabrielle BernsteinIn order to feel good consistently we have to make it a practice. It’s likely you’re used to waiting for your outside circumstances to dictate how you feel. I’m going to let you in something: The entirety of Super Attractor is a process of unlearning that habit!

I want to help you learn how to access good-feeling emotions even when things aren’t working out as you planned. Dedicate time each day to consciously focus on feeling good so that in time it becomes your default state.

Super Attractor hooks you up with tons of methods and tips for feeling good. For now, proactively do more things that make you happy. Think about all the activities in your daily life that make you feel good. Identify the things you do that bring you joy, and do them more often.

Make it a priority to feel good the same way you might make exercise or family a priority. If this is totally new to you or you suspect you’ll revert to old habits in a few days, then schedule these activities into your calendar as you would a meeting.

When we make feeling good our priority, everything else can flow | Gabby Bernstein | Super AttractorThis isn’t about turning fun into another obligation; it’s about making it a priority. If you know you need some structure in order to honor this priority, that’s okay. In time it will become a habit. Remember to be deliberate and bring conscious awareness to feeling good.

This is a whole new way of being. Feeling good must come first. Everything else will follow.

I hope this serves you.

  1. I have made stretching, listening to something in the MM and meditating, almost always a Gabby meditation, my wake up routine. I have now done it every day since April 6! So it’s been a month and I’m feeling a ton better more consistently! Thank you Gabby for all of your work because you have given me the motivation and willingness to do it for myself!! Xoxo

    1. Love this, Laure! So glad the miracle membership is serving you and has become part of your daily routine! xoxo

  2. Sound meditation has become indispensable to me. There’s something so powerful yet calming in the sound – I particularly love crystal singing bowls.
    And of course – music! Listening to my favorite songs (and singing along when I’m in the car).

  3. i do a dr joe dispenza meditation every moment it takes about 1:15hr – then a do a small work-out for 10-15min, eat breakfast and get on with my day – in the afternoon i will do a tapping on something bothering me when i am not working and then i try to take a walk and then in the evening i do a 20 minute soma breathwork journey – this whole routine has helped me sooo much

  4. would LOVE to have your tappings available here from the TAPPING SUMMIT..all 3 for me personally were so so well me…what I need…vs the RAGE one below….and Im with you…EXERCISE , MY TM MEDITATIONS, AFFIRMS, PRAYERS daily and TM def twice a day ..but would love at least one to two tappings that fit my daily routine…yours in the summit do! thanks so xo

    1. Thanks for the suggestion Lisbeth! I’m so glad that my tapping sequences resonated with you. It sounds like you’re doing great work– keep shining your bright light! xo

  5. Yes! A thousand times yes! I want to create a routine because my morning habits do not serve me in a way that works. Too much time in social media and watching the news. Ugh! But this is THE time, the year where I’m committed to feeling good!

  6. I have spent a lot of my life waiting for outside circumstances to make me feel good. Then once a good circumstance arose, my feeling good was short lived because I would prepare myself because something bad must be on the way.
    Making feeling good a priority makes me feel in control of my emotions and mood.
    Thank you for sharing the light.

    1. You’re welcome John. Keep focusing on things bring you joy, which will help you make choices from a place of love rather than fear and anxiety. <3

  7. Hi Gabby!

    I have a question about Kundalini Kriya + TM. Right now, I am doing the Subagh Kriya and would like to add as well. Is it okay if I tune in, do the kriya, tune out and then sit for 15-20 min of TM?

    Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

    1. Great question, Kellie. Yes, as long as you tune out after the kriya, you can absolutely practice TM. Sat Nam, sister!

  8. Hi Gabby,
    I follow all your tools and try so hard to keep up with my spiritual practice. The problem is, I don’t feel heard by god or the universe. I ask for guidance with my struggles and yet feel so alone because I receive nothing. I practice kriyas to work through my blocks yet I feel even more blocked and angrier. why does this happen? The belief is there but I worry I am starting to lose faith..

    1. I appreciate your courage and honesty, Camila. It sounds like you’re asking what to do when you ask for divine guidance and don’t seem to receive it. The key word is “seem,” because we truly are always being guided, even when it doesn’t feel like it. In these moments our work is not to force anything. Instead, I suggest you take the pressure off your practice. When you meditate, practice kriyas and so on, do it with the goal to feel good. Let it be a time of relaxation for you. This way you can start to reconnect to your practices and enjoy them, and as a result you’ll start to reconnect to your intuition as well.

      I often say that when we think we’ve surrendered, we need to surrender more. If this resonates with you, here are my five steps to spiritual surrender: https://gabbybernstein.com/new-blog-super-soul-sessions-talk-5-steps-spiritual-surrender/. I hope this serves you.

  9. Dear Gabby,

    I have tears right now, I am so grateful to you for this blog. I have a 35 year history of severe headaches and migraines. I have done Everything you can ever think of to both live a wonderful full life with my illness and find solutions and in many ways it has been a gift and taken my life in beautiful directions. I have just had a flare up after a very good year and it is very obvious that it is a direct reaction to some emotional situations that I am dealing with. I glanced through your blog the other week and the name Sarno just rung out to me like a bell. I have been in terrible pain for a couple of days and I felt called to download the mind/body prescription last night and for the first time, after years of every mind/body/trauma therapy etc it is like the clouds have parted and I have a sense of my rage and how to accept and work with it. I can’t explain how simple it feels right now and I immediately feel complelty different, I have been stuck in a victim state, in bed, unable to move for a couple of days and this morning I see an exiting new way through. I feel like this is truly a miracle. Thank you so much for sharing your journey so openly, it has touched me. I am looking forward to hearing more about your journey with this work and working with rage ’cause I am going to be exploring that myself over the next little while.

  10. hi there my name is Gina, I just want to say what you drink and eat can also make you feel better throughout your day, our body consists of 70% water, so drinking at least 6 standard glasses of water per day (2 litres) will help you feel nourished and hydrated which in turn gives you more energy and motivation.
    Also having enough protein in your diet will help with your energy levels.

    have a wonderful day 🙂

  11. I also love my morning routine and sets the tone for the day. I wake up early, sit and read something inspirational (lately by Gabby!) with a cup of coffee, then meditate, then journal/pray, then exercise. I’m fortunate that my job allows me this time in the morning. At any rate, I’m showered and ready to work by 9 am. (granted I’m lucky I don’t have much of a commute).

  12. Thank you gabby. Walking near nature and taking deep breaths appreciating what’s around me brings me down a notch and gets me back to balance.

  13. I have committed to your Daily Design method every morning. I don’t journal at all, so this will be a big step for me, and I hope will start my days on the right note.

    1. Nina, pray for guidance and be open to what comes. You can also have an open conversation with your loved ones about the feelings behind the hobby. It may help to see all sides and make the best decision.

  14. What makes me feel good is dancing tango: for the dance itself and for the social interaction. But I feel torn: when I go out dancing I feel guilty, because my husband is unhappy, he has to babysit. And the next morning I am tired… So I limit my dancing outings and I feel frustrated, because it’s my only social life. Dancing is a nice hobby but unpractical with a family life!

  15. Hi Gabby,
    I’m from Germany and you gave me this year so much hope and power to reconnect to my inner guidance and to some higher power. Thank you for your power and light which you share with the world. I am so excited to read your new book! But do you already know when it will be translated in German?? 🙂
    Much love, Jeannine

  16. Hey Gabby, it’s Colleen Coles! I really love to take walks in the afternoon in my neighborhood, when the sun is shining and warmly glowing low in the sky, and I do it with my baby in the stoller, and we just talk. I talk to him like I am talking to God or my spirit guides. It’s really helpful to get the led out, and i always feel more uplifted or clear after. Thanks so much for this article. It’s so helpful!

      1. I love being by the beach so I make the effort to walk along the seafront on my days off. Also putting in my headphones and dancing to my favourite music makes me feel good.

  17. To feel good I wake up and do a Sadhguru meditation, I then do a silent meditation and at the weekends I will journal for 20 minutes. Most days I will exercise at the gym for 45-60 minutes. I end every day with gratitude. If I get out of this routine, I notice the change within a few days
