At Forget Me Not Alternative healing, we are all about finding new ways to promote a HEALTHY and HAPPY lifestyle. We have found a simple weekly (or daily) ritual you can do that's scientifically proven to bring more joy into your life: a GRATITUDE LIST. We are calling our gratitude list #FMNFridayFeels, as we will be sharing our favs with all of you every Friday!
Positive psychology research shows that "gratitude is strongly and consistently associated with greater happiness." This simple act helps people not only feel more positive but also improve their health, handle adversity, and build strong relationships—even on your worst day.
Just starting each day with a commitment to thankfulness creates a ripple effect of good vibes and positivity that will help you see the silver lining even on your worst day. It's true.
Here's the #FMNFridayFeels for the week of 2.23.18:
1 | Here comes the sun, Alaska! The days are getting longer and nothing makes an Alaskan more happy than having more hours of daylight to enjoy our breathtaking surroundings.
2 | Kayaking with Orcas? Heck yeah! Well, for now we need to settle for living vicariously by watching a video of someone else kayaking with Orcas...but it is on our bucket list! Check this out...https://www.facebook.com/BeautyOfPlanetEarth%20/videos/1747163785303898/
Our odds are good because we are lucky enough to live on...
3 | The beautiful Kachemak Bay! Those of us that live in Homer, Alaska, are blessed with surrounding magical views...like that of Kachemak Bay. http://dnr.alaska.gov/parks/units/kbay/kbayl.htm
4 | Crawling into a perfectly made bed at the end of each day. Ahhhhh.....
5 | Brandenberg Quartz. This amazing crystal is a master healer that supports recovery from illness and physical depletion, restoring vitality. We brought some Brandenberg beauties back from the Tucson Gem and Rock show, so be sure to pop in and grab one to add to your collection. http://www.ravencrystals.com/BRANDBERG-QUARTZ-AKA-BRANDENBERG-QUARTZ-SPIRITUAL-ALCHEMY-CRYSTALS_df_1191.html
6 | Starting the day with a refreshing (and super healthy) glass of Celery juice. http://www.medicalmedium.com/blog/celery-juice
7 | While sipping your glass of freshly squeezed celery juice....take the time to read a few lines from your "core" book. A core book is any book that grounds, inspires and provides you with purpose.
8 | Flourite. When confusion clouds your mind, rediscover the path to happiness with an all over mind-body-spirit detox using the Fluorite crystal, your spiritual vacuum cleaner for the dust bunnies in your head. :) https://www.energymuse.com/fluorite-meaning
