I’ve been looking for a local meditation class and stumbled on this site with 100 wellness exercises. The videos are short, 4-6 minutes each, and focus on different aspects of feeling better – by being more grateful, clearing clutter, getting more sleep, beating sugar, and… you get the idea. It’s a great list.
Being a “get it done” kind of girl, I was like, “I’ll do all of these today,” and started to click through one to the next. But I decided instead to stop and spend a day on each one. I’ve tried to remind myself lately that I have time. I don’t have to get everything done right away. It’s a huge temptation for me to think, “Yes. Check. Got it done. Move on.” And rarer for me to take the time to deeply contemplate a thought or idea – especially if it’s a challenge or something negative about who I am or how I think.
So why take on 100 challenges? If you do them over 100 days, you will start to form two habits. The first is the habit of concentrating for 5 minutes a day on wellness. And the second is the habit of being mindful about how you think and what you think.
Take a deep breath. And click that link if you dare 🙂
I’ll leave you today with this shot from the Laurel Hills Cemetery in Saco, Maine. This cemetery is a silent, mysterious place. Naturalized daffodils that spill down the bank to the river remind us that life cycles in a beautiful way.

Hi Susan. Scroll over “this site” and you should see that it’s activated!
Thanks, these are great!
Agree. There are some that don’t resonate with me (anger management), but I love many! Now back to the pacing… 🙂
