Day 3: Hugs

Tip #3- Give a big hug!  Make it a "hug habit." When you greet someone give them a hug. When your family comes home from work, give them a hug. When you say good-bye to anyone, give them a hug. How do you feel when you hug someone? Warm, happy and healthy.
So when you wrap your arms around your loved ones or new friends you are giving your love and when they hug you they are giving theirs. You get a big smile and feel loved. We all need to feel loved and to give love.
So the next time you meet a friend for lunch don't just say hi, give them a hug.
You'll notice how immediate and positive gesture makes in you. And, you'll quickly see it spreads the hug habit to others as well.

Day 2- My "Happy Place" is my back yard. When I can sit and look out at the trees and flowers and butterflies and birds greeting flowers and singing songs it gives me such a happy feeling inside. It makes me appreciate the variety in creation. I meditate on all the abundants we have in everything in life. What a loving Creator to give us so much to take note of and that brings us enjoyment and pleasure in every aspect of life.

Very good advice. I know at church when we greet, we often hug. Some people do and some people don't.
I have flowers and a birdbath out my studio window and looking out at them makes me grateful.

Today when my friend brought his GD I gave her a big hug and she just hugged me back and gave me a big smile. You could just feel the love.

My 'happy place' where I live now are actually 2 spots. At home from my apartment I like to sit out on my balcony when the weather is nice. It overlooks a grassy, tree area and it is really pretty. Great spot to greet the day with a cup of coffee or tea! When I am out and about, I have a fav spot by the lake at a local park here. It is just a beautiful park!! Have a good day! Linda
