          Maria Popova of Brain Pickings always seems to find just the right essay to share when we need it. Read this meditation on lowering depression, drawn from the work of Martin Seligman, and do the exercise she suggests. We all need to take care of ourselves in times of stress and worry.

         The images on today’s post are from the wonderful Buddha Doodles and they reinforce the lessons of the essay and activity.

Read…Reflect…Share!
