Can You Believe It?
This Week's Simple Tip: Some friends and I were talking about what we missed most during this time of social distancing. My answer: HUGS!!
Hugs are good almost any time: when we’re excited, happy, sad, or trying to comfort. They not only make us feel good, but it turns out that hugging is proven to make us healthier and happier as well. Check out why here. But unfortunately we need to be hug-deprived right now :( Do you remember the song Turn, Turn, Turn by The Byrds ? "A time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing” stand out in the lyrics. You might really enjoy listening to this oldie but goodie and see how relevant it is today. The words of the song are actually from the Bible in the third chapter of Ecclesiastes, verses 1 through 8. They have a much bigger message: time passes, and the times do change. May our mindsets focus on the change to come ... including many good things we already see changing. When it is again A TIME TO EMBRACE, we have lots of hugs to make up for as ideally we need 12 hugs a day!
This Week's Focus:
This week, instead of dwelling on what we are missing during this time, let's switch our mindset that times will change! We will get to our new normal and hopefully be more grateful than ever before!
