21 Day Happiness Challenge

21 Day challenge - Day 16

“Love and intimacy are at the root of what makes us sick and what makes us well…I am not aware of any other factor in medicine—not diet, not smoking, not exercise—that has a greater impact.” ~Dean Ornish 

#SocialSaturday Challenge: “Life is about finding people who are your kind of crazy.” One of the clearest research findings is that we are social creatures – how we relate to others is one of the strongest indicators of wellbeing! In fact, studies show that that not having close personal ties poses the same level of health risk as smoking or obesity. We are wired to love, to be loved, and to belong…so, in the next 24 hours, reflect on who are “your kind of crazy” and spend time “traveling with them” today :) Extend this challenge beyond this weekend by gathering your tribe and become a founding member of a Circle of Happiness: http://www.projecthappiness.org/happiness-circles/
“As I get older, I recognize just how important it is to be surrounded by people who deeply believe in our value and goodness even when we lose our footing. It took me years to rid myself of the lite-dimmers and it has been much clearer sailing since. Not that there isn’t value in having difficult people to overcome, but eventually it becomes essential to be surrounded by those who lift and wish us higher. If they don’t see you in your highest light, wish them well and cut the cord.” ~Jeff Brown
