How to Spread Light to Yourself and Others

The greatest asset you could own is an open heart - Nikki Rowe

With so much going on in the world right now, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed.  

In the past two years, a lot of us have spent more time inside than ever. Add that to the uncertainty we are all facing with everything happening around us, it's understandable why stress levels are on a high.  

In addition, we can encounter negativity, hate, and prejudice in many different shapes and forms in our lives.  

While things can get challenging and we all have our own hurdles to go through, it's important to find ways to still spread hope and light.  

How will you spread light to yourself and to others today? Here are some suggestions to inspire you.

  1. 5 Minutes of deep belly breathing
  2. Take a walk
  3. Cook and eat your favorite meal with no distractions
  4. Choose a favorite quote and doodle an illustration for it
  5. Have a session with your therapist
  6. Send postcards to your older relatives or friends who might be quarantining alone
  7. Learn a new fact about a culture other than your own

We each have the ability to let our light shine through and show up in our highest and best for ourselves and others.  

Each day that we are given the gift of life, we are also given a purpose. Although we don't realize it, we are helping others in ways that we could never see or imagine. You never realize how much of a light you actually are for others.  

If any of these resonate with you, let us know! What are your favorite ways to spread light ☀️

You don't overcome challenges by making them smaller but by making yourself bigger - John C. Maxwell

It may not always be easy to spread light and love, especially when you yourself are struggling. This is why we recommend talking to someone about what you are going through. This could either be a loved one, a friend, or a therapist.  

Talking to someone you trust is a powerful way to heal. And when you are able to care for yourself, you have the ability, capacity, and energy to give more to others around you.
