The grateful are given more and much is taken away from those who are not.
If it is not too cold, step out in green for green spaces nurture the soul; walk on the grass bare feet and it shall soothe mind, body and soul and if it is a holiday plan for a picnic to a forest nearby.
2.One thing at a time and a few daily While there seems to be so much to do, remember it is only possible to do one thing at a time well and only a few daily. Sit down in a quiet corner with a note pad and pencil and choose what you have to do for the day. You could make a list if there happens to be too much to do today. As you choo…
