Uplifting Others. Uplifting Ourselves.

During this holiday season, when stress can get in the way of joy and when the body can be depleted by the little cold and flu bugs that scurry about, I came upon this quote which I wanted to share with you:

"The greatest way to ensure your own happiness, is to do all that you can to uplift the lives of others." ~ Sharon Gannon

But, remember ... to have the energy to uplift others, you must nurture and nourish your own energy first. Support your immune system with good diet and habits. Unroll your yoga mat and stretch out. Sit in quiet for a few minutes and let your mind unwind. Treat yourself to a good book or a sweet chocolate. Do something nice for yourself and let your body absorb and enjoy that kindness. Then share that sweetness with those you meet along your day.
