Feeling Good Tip of the Day ~ Discover the Good in Your Life

“If you’re struggling to find joy, there’s one simple yet powerful thing that can help: digging for joy. “Take a moment once a day to recognize the things that are good in your life. At the moment I’m calling it ‘having a dig for joy’ to find the little moments that make us happy in our day,” . . . These little moments can help to buffer against stress and anxiety. It’s a simple practice to do even on terrible days.” Source

NOTE: Instead of asking or thinking about ‘what’s wrong’ try asking and thinking about ‘what’s right or good.’ For each moment in your life you conjure up something wrong, with a bit of effort you’ll discover ten moments where something good happened. These are the times where it all came together and turned out right. You’ll feel a lot better.

Positive Thought of the Day ~ It’s the Finish Line that Counts

“Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start.”

Nido Qubein

NOTE: It’s not the starting line that counts, it is the finish line. Work hard, never quit, and never miss an opportunity to be kind. You’ll achieve more than you can ever imagine.

Health Tip of the Day ~ What Veggies Are More Nutritious When Cooked?

5 Veggies that Give You More Nutrition Once Cooked

  1. Tomatoes: Cooking tomatoes can actually increase the amount of lycopene, an antioxidant that has been linked to a reduced risk of cancer and heart disease.
  2. Spinach: Cooking spinach can increase the amount of iron that your body absorbs from it.
  3. Carrots: Cooking carrots can make the beta-carotene more available to your body, which can then be converted into vitamin A.
  4. Asparagus: Cooking asparagus can break down the tough cell walls, making it easier for your body to absorb its nutrients, including folate and vitamins A, C, and K.
  5. Mushrooms: Cooking mushrooms can increase the amount of ergothioneine, a powerful antioxidant that has been linked to a reduced risk of chronic diseases.

It’s important to note that overcooking vegetables can destroy some of their nutrients, so it’s best to cook them lightly and avoid boiling them for long periods of time.

Poem of the Day ~ The Miracle

The Miracle

Fenton Johnson

Though I was dwelling in a prison house, 
My soul was wandering by the carefree stream
Through fields of green with gold eyed daisies strewn, 
And daffodils and sunflower cavaliers. 
And near me played a little browneyed child, 
A winsome creature God alone conceived, 
“Oh, little friend,” I begged. “Give me a flower
That I might bear it to my lonely cell.” 
He plucked a dandelion, an ugly bloom, 
But tenderly he placed it in my hand, 
And in his eyes I saw the sign of love. 
‘Twas then the dandelion became a rose.
