The Holidays are a time of reflection; to be thankful and happy for all that you have in your life. Therein lies the problem for those who have experienced loss during the season. It can be difficult to get over the feelings of loneliness and sadness that are only amplified by the idea that happiness is a requirement for the holidays.
Studies show the more value placed on happiness, the more likely you are to be unhappy. Instead, remember another reason for the season: family and friends. Reach out to those around you, remember the losses, but also take the opportunity to look ahead to the future.
Some run for pleasure, some run for their health, and others run as a chore for their health. The latter would be happy to know that running a total of 6 miles a week could be as beneficial as running 6 miles a day. That is, when it comes to heart health and lower cancer risks. However, if you're running to lose weight, stick to your mileage. #BeTheChange #Flex5
When you're going about your day-to-day life, you may often take the simplest of tasks for granted; opening doors, driving, writing, even lifting weights at the gym. For others it can be daily struggle, especially if they're missing a hand. Luckily, one 9 year old girl is changing the world one step at a time by creating cheap, durable prosthetic hands with her father. Through her efforts, she has given many others a new lease on life, and a chance to do the very things many of us take for granted each day. "Everybody can change the world. You don't need to do something huge to change it". #BeTheChange #Flex5
Open your eyes to the beauty around you!
As a society we tend to impose unrealistic expectations of what true beauty means, especially on kids and teenagers, setting them to feel inadequate, unappreciated and always feeling inferior to those who are considered “prettier” by society standards.
Beauty has no gender, color, sexuality, age or societal standards and is present anywhere you go and in everything that surrounds you. It doesn’t cost us anything to give a compliment and call someone beautiful, yet it makes a massive difference to that person’s self-esteem and this video could not have captured the rawness of beauty and what it truly means to someone.
Be generous, be kind and genuine in complimenting others and #BeTheChange, as one little word can often make or break someone’s life for years to come.
PS. I dare you to look in the mirror tonight and say “You are beautiful”
