Today I learned that people search Google for information on mental illnesses more often during the winter months than during the summer. (Here is a report of the finding, although the article’s title is misleading.)
Today I meditated for 20 minutes of mindfulness. Some of you have asked me about trying secular meditation, so here are a few resources if you are interested: I would recommend guided meditations by Jon Kabat-Zinn or Sharon Salzberg (they both have CD’s on iTunes or Amazon), but also here are some free guided meditations and here is a timer for silent practice.
Today I acted kindly by preparing and serving food for homeless people at the local charity kitchen.
