I can only dream that all people become a little kinder! Recently, I've noticed that people have become much more angry and unsmiling. Most likely, this is due to the crisis and the coronavirus... This pandemic has brought too much grief to us. Despite the fact that almost all places were closed in our city, I still tried to lead my usual lifestyle. I do yoga every day, walk my dog 5 km a day, and eat right. I train my brain to think happy thanks to b-simply-healthy.com where I find a huge number of useful articles that help me maintain my healthy lifestyle.
Recently helped a couple older then me with mobility issues get their laundry done at the laundry mat. It has changed a lot since the old days. They couldn't do the wash at home because of plumbing problems and were unfamiliar with all the changes. Nice couple enjoyed sitting outside and talking with them while the laundry whirled away. I always look for ways to help makes for a better world!

While this is an old adage we learn from an early age, there are a number of real-life benefits associated with the way we treat others.
