Today is International Peace Day, a wonderful time to create and share positive thoughts and wishes and to create peace personally and beyond.
Here’s how 30 seconds of peaceful reflection can make a positive difference:
- Close your eyes, breathe deeply in and out through your nose.
- Think of a happy or positive moment in your life or someone you love or care about. (This step relaxes your brain and gets you into a more positive mood.)
- Now, send wishes of peace and happiness to your family, friends and foes, and to folks worldwide you don’t know.
- Then, smile.
Congratulations, both your body and brain now have all sorts of positive, broaden and build chemicals and hormones floating through them, and if you are the teeny, tiniest bit happier or more peaceful you have increased the odds that everyone you meet or talk to today will be, too. It’s a simple step toward creating world peace, moment-to-moment, person-by-person.
PS Repeat as needed throughout the day – and your life – to keep positivity and peace flowing – inside and out!
