Today’s Inspiration ~ Don’t Listen to the Naysayers

“Don’t give to anyone the power to put you down. Haters are losers pretending to be winners.”

~ Paulo Coelho

A Better Life ~ Kindness is Super Healthy

Did you know that witnessing kind acts and participating in them makes you healthier?

According to a study, “Witnessing acts of kindness produces oxytocin, occasionally referred to as the ‘love hormone’ which aids in lowering blood pressure and improving our overall heart-health. Oxytocin also increases our self-esteem and optimism, which is extra helpful when we’re in anxious or shy in a social situation. . . .When you are kind to another person, your brain’s pleasure and reward centers light up, as if you were the recipient of the good deed—not the giver. This phenomenon is called the “helper’s high.”

No dieting or supplements required. Be kind to everyone you meet and you’ll feel a lot better.

Today’s Health Tip ~ Green It Up

Get your Green Vitamin

It’s official: surrounding yourself with green views has a powerful effect on health and wellbeing, reducing psychological stress and boosting energy, self-esteem, and mood. As well as regularly getting out in nature, position the chairs in your house so you naturally gaze out of the windows, fill your home with indoor plants, and set your computer screensaver to your favorite landscape.
