Look Towards The Light
If you lather up with sunblock like I do, you will probably still need a Vitamin D supplement, but its nice to get outside and feel that golden light on your skin.
It doesn’t have to be a hike up a mountain or a trip to the beach. A balcony, patio or even sitting by a sunny window will do. Pausing a few moments each day to breathe and literally lighten up!
Consciously pausing, getting light, allowing your mind and muscles to relax even for few seconds adds up. You’ll be happier, healthier and lead a more productive life.
Find a sunny spot, sit in a relaxed position, face the light, take 5-breaths, breathing slowing and deeply. 5-slow breaths is about 45-seconds. Don’t you have 45-seconds to lighten up? Try it.
Take care of you today!
