Accepting Self, Others and Life: Hypothesis

For three weeks, I planned on not harming my relationships with family, friends, and co-workers because of how I believe they should act, work, talk, or behave.  The goal was to not internally or externally judge or criticize them for not being the person or doing the things that I believed they should be doing.  I chose to journal every night before I went to bed about how the day went and what I needed to work on for the next day.  When I had a moment of judgment or impatience, I practiced my yogic breath and sometimes chanted to myself.  I also tried to wake up before going to work and practice either ten minutes of asana or sadhana to try and calm and center my mind.
