Wellness Wednesday?

[G]rowing into your future with health and grace and beauty doesn’t have to take all your time. It rather requires a dedication to caring for yourself as if you were rare and precious, which you are, and regarding all life around you as equally so, which it is.
~Victoria Moran


I'm thinking about starting a new weekly post on Wednesdays focusing on things that help people cope with stress, be healthier, feel better. What do you think of "Wellness Wednesday" as a name? Open to suggestions!

Today I'm posting a collection of things I've already shared:

How to give yourself a hand massage
Teen relaxation music (also good for other ages!)
Soothing sounds (Tibetan singing bowls)
A meditative poem
Poems to lean on
Changing lives with meditation (about a program)
A permission slip to use as needed
Free compliments
Watching people dance cheers me up
More dancing
Whimsical addendum:
Moustaches: Art Thursday
Smiles: Art Thursday
Two feel-good videos from The Piano Guys
A heartwarming sister act
Alan Rickman's Answering Machine (A day may come when I get tired of Alan Rickman's answering machine, but this is not that day...)

Maybe you've been thinking about trying yoga but haven't gotten around to it? Here are videos from Yoga with Adrienne:



I like this short stretch:

I think that Wellness Wednesday is a great name for a post...and a good idea to boot.

I especially like the little things that make me laugh or relax, if only for a moment or two.

Wellness Wednesday is a great name! There are probably more than a few of us who could use a bit of stress-relief today.
