I know right now, many of us are so overwhelmed that we don't feel like doing anything but numb out. I know it's hard but, I feel if we can motivate ourselves to do a few positive things a day, it will help us handle stress in the future. Everything is interconnected. What we eat, read, listen to. How much sleep we get, the quality of our sleep, how much we exercise and practice our mind-body health practices. How much screen time or outside in nature “really living” time we have. Whether are drinking enough water or not. How much time and space we give ourselves to “Just Be.” All contribute to our level of happiness and joy. All affect how we handle stress. And the intensity we feel our stress.
There is a lot going on in the world. It is easy to be afraid and overwhelmed. But, I believe, little, tiny choices that we make, minute to minute, can help us live happier more joyful lives.There are situations that we seem to have no control over. But there are thousands of moments in our lives that we do have a choice in.
My life’s mission is to make choices that will help me cultivate peace, love, laughter and joy, and share it with as many humans as I can around the world. I’m happy you’re one of them. Thanks for reading my blog. Sending abundant love, light and healing energy to you now.
