Your inner dialogue can lead to inner peace or inner chaos, no matter what happens around you.
The list below was created on post-it notes during a workshop at the 2020 Gross Global Happiness Summit at the University of Peace in Costa Rica (just before the COVID shutdown). Our goal was to keep our inner dialogues positive and practice greater self-love.
