One of my favorite sounds is the sound of a child laughing. Laughter is infectious. It is a beautiful noise to be in a room full of laughter. Laughter is far more contagious than the germs floating around this time of year. So, get your giggle on. We are excited to share a few reasons how laughter can be therapeutic.
As we celebrate the New Year, we often reflect and take inventory on the past twelve months. We may find ourselves placing events and occurrences into certain categories: good, bad, easy, hard, happy or difficult. Sometimes we can get stuck in the hard times, or what we now think should have or could have been done differently.
When we think of gratitude, we often think of it as being a gift we give to others. Compliments, appreciation, and words of affirmation from others have the power to impact and even change the course of our day for the better. During the holiday season, thankfulness is at the core of our celebrations.
Money can buy impressive possessions; yet sometimes it seems the most valuable “gift” is when someone chooses to give us their time and attention. In a world that distracts endlessly, how often do we slow down to really look into someone’s eyes and give them our undivided attention?
