People craft– taking care of ourselves

Feel happier with two little words, THANK YOU!  Expressing gratitude once a week is proven to relax your body and mind which increases feelings of optimism by 15% while significantly reducing worries.  

Activate anti-worry genes with coffee.  Coffee sometimes gives us the jitters, but its aroma has the opposite effect.  One deep whiff activates genes that ease anxiety.  Once turned on, these unique genes supercharge your production of stress-fighting antioxidants.
