The kindness of caring

“The only time you look in your neighbor’s bowl is to make sure that they have enough. You don’t look in your neighbor’s bowl to see if you have as much as them.”

― Louis C.K.

An exercise

Take a few moments today and think about your blessings. Giving some thought to those things that are going well with your life can help you realize that the bad will go away. You will survive. (Que singing….)

One of the ways that I have found to calm my mind is with meditation. Seek out a quite place and have a moment to yourself just listening to your breathing. Try to ignore all of the thoughts that pop into your head and try to distract you. You have time for this!

Once you are calm and relaxed, give some thought to how helping others and caring for others benefits you. From the dopamine boost to the feeling of gratitude, all of these things can help you find the freedom to enjoy another day a little better than the last.
