This week’s challenge is all about appreciation. With all that is going on in the world and at home, it’s easy to become worried and anxious from time to time. That’s not healthy, but it is part of life!

Something to think about: spending a few moments counting blessings is much easier than the exhausting “personal development” trend that is so popular of late. Improving yourself is a vital part of good health and a satisfying life, but the irony is that this prescription can become yet another stress-inducing measure on your personal fix-it list.
Instead, just take a few minutes at a given time every day this week to reflect on what you appreciate. It’s simple, but it works.
