Consider purchasing glitter lip gloss for all members of the family to be used as a reminder to keep our words positive and encouraging. Or use it as a reminder to use our words to heal through an apology or offer forgiveness. Words have the power to hurt or heal!
Last, why not make it a regular routine to take a walk in the local forest? Forest bathing has been scientifically proven therapeutic, (see the articles below). In addition, daily exercise is essential for personal health. Walking after a meal can help with regulating sugar levels, enhancing digestion, and promoting weight loss. It is also a great way to chat with the family in a casual non-threatening way, as one problem solves or analyzes the events of the day. Last, nature has a great way of delivering us back to the now. Just think of the riveting awestruck wonder moment of seeing a beautiful rainbow, pastel sunset, or hearing the melodies sung by our songbirds. Let’s move away from the bustle, screens, and home routines and take a walk on the forested wild side.
