Do This to Feel Good Today

You know how good it feels when someone tells you your skin is glowing, how much they love your laugh, or how much you mean to them? 

Compliments are priceless. Not only do they make the person on the receiving end feel good, but they make us feel good when we see how much something we say can brighten someone’s day. 

We also love how contagious compliments are. When you lift someone’s spirits — chances are, they’ll lift someone else’s soon after. 🙂 

These days, we have less physical contact than normal, which can make sharing a compliment feel more challenging (especially if you only see your friends and fam over a fuzzy FaceTime or Zoom). 

But giving compliments allows you to see the world in a positive way, so this weekend, set a goal to give out two (or more!) compliments a day. If you notice a neighbor’s roses blooming, let her know how beautiful and happy they look (and take a second to smell them, while you’re at it!). Or if your friend just got a promotion, call her up and tell her how proud you are of her. It’s the little gestures that go a long way … for both of you!

Speaking of compliments, when someone offers you one, too, make sure you take it with a thank you. They wanted you to feel special so there’s no need to brush it off with a “Oh, this old thing!” or “Ugh, you’re too kind — I think my hair looks like I just rolled out of bed!” Own the compliment, and let them know how good it made you feel. 

To get the compliment ball rolling, we want you to know we think you’re pretty amazing. We know you have a kind heart and make a positive difference in this world. 

Wishing you a wonderful, feel-good weekend! Now go on, get complimenting. 😉

Make Time for Your Dreams

Make Time for Your Dreams

What’s one thing you could do that would make this year stand out from the rest and make you feel like you took a big leap in your life?

These days, many of us are so pressed for time that we give ourselves few moments to do what actually excites us. But even if your day feels impossibly stuffed, you can make time for what really matters.

Sounds nice, but how, you may be wondering? I’m so happy you asked!

You Are Enough, Right Now

You Are Enough, Right Now

Some days you may feel like you’re not good enough, or doing enough. You may wish you could snap your fingers and turn into a version of yourself you think you should be with a perfect job, spotless house, and exciting hobbies (or whatever your definition of an ideal life may be).  

But here’s something you need to know … You are wonderful, just as you are. You are enough, right now.

A Less Stress Summer

A Less Stress Summer

Summer is synonymous with relaxation, but sometimes we find ourselves stressed out and not living our best, “feet in the sand, good book in hand,” season.

Worries happen to all of us. But, one of the easiest ways to feel more carefree is to take a moment to declutter your brain. Because here’s the deal: Our brain can only handle so many thoughts at once. Anything extra bouncing around distracts you from enjoying otherwise happy moments.

Here’s how:
