Happy Mother's Day

Celebrate by listing the women in your life who you're grateful for. Think of ways they inspire you & what you appreciate them for. Then call or email them to share your gratitude.

5 Benefits of Gratitude

1.       Improve health

2.       Better sleep

3.       Increase self-esteem

4.       Improve empathy

5.       Increase resilience

5 Love Languages

Dr. Gary Chapman’s book list 5 ways to express love

1.       Verbal  affirmation

2.       Quality time

3.        Gifts

4.       Acts of service

5.       Physical touch

This Mothers’s Day, determine the main way you express love and do more of it. Then try to show your love in other ways. 

I took an Acro-yoga class where the teachers emphasized good communication and trusting the partner to accomplish each pose. It was a great way to practice the verbal love language by saying “good job”, “you’ve got it”, etc. The whole class was based on physical touch.  It was challenging and fun. If you haven’t tried acro-yoga, do so.
