Day 28

Today I learned that making new real-world friends increases your well-being considerably, whereas making cyber-friends (e.g. contacts in online social networks) does not impact well-being at all. Indeed, as many of us intuit, recent research has shown that face-to-face interactions transcend technological connections. (Bonus! Want to watch a brief, heart-warming video or two about face-to-face connection? Try this and this.)

Today I meditated for 15 minutes.

Today I acted kindly by hand-writing and mailing a letter addressed to any Canadian Forces member. I think it is important to recognize and appreciate the courage of such individuals, regardless of opinions of overseas operations. (The photos below can be enlarged by clicking on them.)
