Remember This While On Your Path

wellness quote,matthew killorin,health

We’ve all been there.

While on our path to self-improvement it seems like we’re stuck, or maybe not making a dent in those long-range goals.

Well, that’s when we must remember wellness is a lifelong journey and if it seems like we’re not doing anything substantial – it’s still okay.

Remember, every positive action, thought or intention is important – and it matters.

Here are the small things I’ve done recently that I think matter –

I drink more water throughout the day.

I read spiritual teachings or philosophy of the great masters for a few minutes each day.

I walk every day.

I’ve developed a brief yoga practice that I try to deepen each day.

I meditate at least ten minutes every day.

I don’t envy others (or at least catch my thinking when I do).

I remind myself to breathe consciously.

I bought an adult / mindfulness coloring book and work in it a few minutes each day.

What small, positive things have you done that you’d like to share?

Adult Coloring Books For Stress Relief

I’ve been watching the adult coloring book trend with much interest, but I haven’t given it a try, yet.

It’s easy to understand why people would find them so helpful and fun. Not only is it a simple creative activity, but it can promote mindfulness, as well.

This weekend I’ll pick up a book and see how it feels.

Have you bought an adult coloring book? If so, can you recommend any particular book you enjoyed?

Tech Insider has more via the link below.

“The latest trend has adults around the world picking up crayons and filling in the lines in an effort to zap stress. Eight of the 20 top-selling books on Amazon right now are adult coloring books with names like ‘Stress Relieving Patterns’ and ‘Balance.'” – Madison Malone Kircher

Here’s a wonderful little story about an abandoned puppy who found a home in a baseball stadium.

(This story takes place right here in my hometown – Savannah, Georgia. In fact, the baseball stadium shown in the video is only a couple of miles from my house.)
