This Week's Quote
This Week's Quick Tip
Yep, you guessed it. This week’s topic was inspired because I’ve recently been going on mid-day walks around my neighborhood.
And let me tell you, they’re a lot more enjoyable in the warm and sunny weather than on the gloomy cloudy days. But that’s besides the point.
Whenever I find myself stuck, stressed, anxious, overwhelmed or anything in between, I find that even a quick 15 minute walk gets me in the right headspace to conquer the rest of the day.
When in doubt, go on a walk. I think you’ll find yourself to have much greater clarity afterward.
This Week's Find The Good Story
This week’s find the good story is from Kahseim. Hope it inspires you as much as it inspires us!
“My method to find the good is to call it out when I see it.
Oftentimes, we fail to speak on the simple, yet beautiful, things we regularly experience in life. When I meet someone with a unique name, wearing an interesting shirt, or doing something particularly selfless or helpful, I make sure I let them know.
It's my belief that we empower one another when we find the good in them and have the courage to speak on it.”
