We all know we should “Strive for Five” servings of fruits and veggies a day to keep our bodies healthy. Jim tagged me with the task of describing the 5 things I do everyday to keep my spirit happy & healthy. I jotted a bunch down in my sketchbook. Here are the top five….
Allow me to elaborate:
1. I need sunshine. If there are too many winter cloudy days strung together, then a cozy spot near a fireplace will keep me going. Or even candles on the dinner table or sparkly lights strung around.
2. Exercise. Dance, a long fast walk, yoga, running up and down stairs, cartwheels, anything.
3. Beauty = A walk in the woods, a trip to a museum, a good picture book, almost anything if you look closely enough.
4. There’s just something about that end of day ritual that makes everything right in the world. A little music, a glass of wine, beautiful veggies, the rhythm of preparing the food…chopping, stirring, the aroma, the taste, and of course good company.
5. The best thrill ever.
So now I am s’posed to tag some folks. This is a no-obligation invitation to share your spirit lifting techniques…
Of course, any and all are encouraged to join in!
But here is where this train jumps the track… I am also going to tag some non-blogging friends.
