For someone who experienced regular physical and emotional trauma as a young person, rewiring my body and brain toward joyful wellbeing is crucial for my happiness. A tradition of exhilaration is good for the mind, body, and soul. Why not take a few minutes to deliberately feel good everyday - and see what power a healing habit can have in your own life?

We made a pact. For three months we tried an experiment. We decided to write to each other every day, "You are beautiful, and I love you" - just to get used to it, ya know, just to get used to how it feels to be loved. And we promised each other that we would not put up with not being cared about and loved by the people in our lives - especially in our romantic relationships. And it really helped. A lot. It meant a lot. Coming from her from my fractured family, it meant a lot.
