♥ Can you name 5 things that comfort your heart?
1. More comfort & less stress – slow down, relax, unwind, and listen to your heart beat.
Remember next time you’re rushed and stressed, stop and take a few deep breathes.
Take a comfort moment every day. Wrap up in your Comfort Silkie Throw and
reset your body and mind.
2. More comfort exercise – enjoy a walk or some exercise. It helps your heart, your brain,
and your bones. Take care of your body, it’s the only one you have.
3. Eat healthy comfort foods like veggies, fruits, whole grains that nourish your heart.
4. Less fatty foods. Next time you pick up that yummy fatty item don’t think
“A minute on my lips, forever on my hips” ... Instead think “Forever in my heart.”
5. A merry heart is like good medicine. Remember something funny and take time to laugh.
