🌾 Today’s Poem ~ If All The Skies

If All The Skies

Henry Van Dyke

If all the skies were sunshine,Β Β 

Our faces would be fain

To feel once more upon themΒ Β 

The cooling plash of rain.

If all the world were music,Β Β 

Our hearts would often long

For one sweet strain of silence.Β Β 

To break the endless song.

If life were always merry,Β Β 

Our souls would seek relief,

And rest from weary laughterΒ Β 

In the quiet arms of grief.

Today’s Smile πŸ˜ƒ

A man walks into a seafood store carrying a trout under his arm.

β€œDo you make fish cakes?” he asked.

β€œYes, we do,” replied the fishmonger.

β€œGreat,” said the man, β€œIt’s his birthday.”

  1. Select oils that provide omega-3 fatty acids, such as canola or flaxseed oil.

  3. Eat two 4-ounce portions of fatty fish each week, such as salmon, lake trout, albacore tuna (in water, if canned), mackerel and sardines.

🍎 Today’s Health Tip ~ A Simple Practice to Build Resiliency

PRACTICE TO BUILD RESILIENCY

Dr. Sood explains one simple, life-changing practice called morning gratitudes. Each morning when you wake up and before getting out of bed, think of five people or animals you are grateful for. See each one individually in your mind, and say a silent thank you. Do this for two weeks, and see if you notice anything shift in how you handle stress and interactions with others. By doing this, you are activating the love hormone called oxytocin rather than the stress hormone called cortisol. Your brain and heart will thank you for this. You can find more practices to build resiliency in his book.
