Five Simple Things

A recent study indicates that people can help protect their mental health if they will do five simple things each day.

Connect: Developing relationships with family, friends, colleagues, and neighbors will enrich your life and bring you support
Be Active: Sports, hobbies such as gardening or dancing, or just a daily stroll will make you feel good and maintain mobility and fitness
Be Curious: Noting the beauty of everyday moments -- and reflecting on them -- helps you to appreciate what matters to you
Learn: Fixing a bike, learning an instrument, cooking -- the challenge and satisfaction brings fun and confidence
Give: Helping friends and strangers links your happiness to a wider community and is very rewarding

As Christians, we would certainly add daily spiritual disciplines to the list (prayer, Bible study, using our spiritual gifts to serve God and others, etc.) to this list. Still, it's a nice reminder that the simplest actions can make a huge difference in the quality of our lives.
