Day 102

Today I learned about the Social Progress Index, a new way to measure the well-being of countries. This differs from Gross National Happiness because it not only measures quality of life, but also other indicators such as safety, health, sustainability, equity, freedom, shelter, and so on.

Today I meditated for 17 minutes, a traditional “loving-kindness” meditation.

Today I acted kindly by applying to start volunteering in the pediatrics program at the local hospital.

“Compassion is a verb.”
