“It is very important that we re-learn the art of resting and relaxing. Not only does it help prevent the onset of many illnesses that develop through chronic tension and worrying; it allows us to clear our minds, focus, and find creative solutions to problems.—Thich Nhat Hanh—

We seem to run all day—to pay the bills, invest in the future, get ahead, perform endless jobs, and when we’re finished with that, we run even more.

It is good to take a bit of time each day to sit and relax, to contemplate and meditate. Only a few minutes of contemplation will act as a powerful pill of reconstitution. Try it.

Smile for your inner happiness
Remember, you are the only you in the world
And remember that, Everything is going to be all right

Later on you can share a smile with someone.
Everything is going to be all right
