Close your eyes. Imagine walking into a room filled with people you love all smiling at you. How does that make you feel? The humble smile is an amazing thing. It not only enriches your wellbeing, but also that of others. It’s free, but is sometimes the most meaningful gift we can give. Even if only for a brief moment, a smile projected from one face to another, lifts spirits and orients your whole self to a more positive mindset. Dishing out smiles is one of the simplest and effective ways to reap greater enjoyment from life.
Liberation of one’s mind, body and spirit, can be achieved through a simple and beautiful inner resource: Mindfulness. By actively pursuing mindfulness daily, one can reach an eternal level of both personal and external understanding. Once one’s mind has been opened to it, change almost becomes effortless. It’s like discovering a light bulb, which, once turned on, stays illuminated.
One might think that something as innate as breathing would be something we all do naturally well. Yet the way we breathe fulfills much more than a functional life-preserving role. Daily mindful breathing has the capacity to reduce stress and revolutionize your mental health and overall wellbeing.
