“The smallest act of kindness is worth more than grandest intention.” –Oscar Wilde
So true. This quote reminds me of scuba diving. I have been intrigued by sharks the moment i came close to one diving for the first time 15 years ago. In 2013, I was inches away from great whites, a dream on mine i wanted to accomplish by the age of 40. So thrilled and thankful I did it.
Cool and so what? what does that have to do with smallest act of kindness? Under water, although seeing the big animals is awesome, the most precious moments and experiences come from taking the time to appreciate the small creatures. watch carefully how they breath and move. It’s precious. It makes me smile. Brings me peace. This appreciation started during a 5-day liveaboard scuba trip in Australia almost 15 years ago. One I hope to never be wiped out of my mind.
What does that have to do with health and wellness? a lot, actually! Stress is a silent killer. Practicing deep breathing, shut your eyes, and transporting yourself to a place and/or moment that brings you peace, makes you smile and relax is one of several FREE and easy ways that can help you manage stress! Remember to focus on things YOU CAN CONTROL!
