How is your heart feeling? Alive and well? Joyful and content? Did you find something you are going to make tonight or share with a friend?

Your heart will thank you for taking great care of it. Give it what it needs everyday. For example:

  • Take time out and quiet your mind, which in turn creates a sense of well-being for your heart and body.
  • Get out there with your family or friends and get some exercise. 
  • Do something you have wanted or might never have tried. 
  • Eat well, provide your body with nutrient dense foods.
  • Smile at strangers.  

Happy Valentine's Day. Which some say is just another Hallmark Day but to me it is much more. My heart knows what I am talking about.

Share this with someone who means a lot to your heart. See you next week.

Love you!
