Finding Joy in June.  As we start the second half of the year let’s focus on ways we can find joy.

Seek the good in others, and notice the effect it has on you when you focus on the good.

    • Look for the good with everyone you come in contact with, even if you are having a difficult interaction. Some qualities you might notice are:
      • Creativity
      • Kindness
      • Humor
      • Intelligence
    • Enjoy your interactions with others.

Use this Mindfulness Activity to Re-energize your Body and Mind whenever you need a moment to reset – while waiting, before, after, or to transition between activities:

    • Straighten your spine. Roll your shoulders back and down, smile to yourself, & relax your jaw.
    • Take slow deep belly breaths, allowing your stomach to rise with each breath in and relax with each breath out. You may find that each breath gets better and better. Allow your shoulders to relax on each exhale.
    • Repeat positive affirmations throughout your day, while smiling.
      • My mind is peaceful.
      • I choose to act and react peacefully.
      • I illuminate peace around me.

Recharge yourself and share positive energy when you repeat:  

“I am [*Name*]. I can do this. As I connect to my inner self, I am open to the Happiness and positive energy around me. I send loving kindness and compassion to all people including me. Together, we can do great things.”

With gratitude and appreciation for all beings,
