My Enlightened Delights


To enjoy good health,
to bring true happiness to one’s family,
to bring peace to all,
one must first discipline and control one’s own mind.
If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment,
and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.
— Buddha

Day 28: Give someone a hug.

Research shows that any kind of bodily contact—whether it’s a hug or a handshake—can boost oxytocin, a brain chemical that may help control appetite. Oxytocin was found to help curb drug cravings, and experts say it may work the same way to ease food hankerings as well.

This is an easy one...go out and give someone a hug! The more hugs you give the better!
