Today I learned about the ancient origins of holism, the concept that any natural entity should be analyzed as a whole, rather than as separate parts that form a composite (as in atomism or reductionism). For instance, “holistic health” refers to considering all aspects (e.g. physical, psychological, emotional, social, etc.) of a person’s needs as a whole, rather than individually (this is different from holistic alternative medicine practices, such as acupuncture, naturopathy, etc.).
Today I meditated for 15 minutes on compassion.
Today I acted kindly by giving out chocolate Easter eggs to friends, colleagues, and strangers.
