5 Ways To Create Some Joy This Week

April 13, 2020

Mental energy

As the weeks continue with social distancing and extra precautions, it's understandable feeling a little more drained than usual. It takes a lot of mental energy to deal with such a radical change in lifestyle. Here's some encouragement on that front: mental energy has a lot in common with physical energy. The greatest athletes in the world are capable of doing tremendous physical feats for incredible amounts of time because they put hours and years of practice in. Mentally, the ability to create joy and intentional kindness is enhanced by the same kind of practice. Need more mental reserve? Sometimes the best answer is to simply help someone else.

Don't Forget:
