School Gardens

Thinking about building a garden for your school? Great idea! The benefits of adding a school garden are numerous and profound! Some of those include changing eating habits, improving test scores, connecting children to the environment, helping fight childhood obesity, promoting physical activity and changing attitudes towards learning.
All in all, school gardens are a great opportunity for fun and physical activity while serving as an important educational tool to help students understand how healthy food is produced.

Our first Lady Michelle Obama has been on a mission to encourage everyone to raise healthier children. One of the action steps she recommends is a school garden that would support all the goals that ‘Lets Move‘ campaign is trying to accomplish.

Be Happy!

Be Happy!

It is during these final days of the year that we reflect the most. Sometimes we get stuck focusing on the bad, what we’ve done wrong, what we could’ve done instead… . While reflecting is very important and brings us closer to the attainment of our goals, we should reflect on what brought us closer to a happiness state and what we should be grateful for. I take that a step further and bring happiness into my life by purposefully doing everyday things I know make me happy.

Here are a few things to get you focused on happiness too!
Sing and move to the beat in your car

When the right song comes on , go for it! Sing, sway to the beat, enjoy every second, don’t resist. Amazing how 3 minutes of singing in your car can elevate your mood and charge you for the day ahead!

Smile more
There are many benefits to smiling, the simplest is it makes you happy! Some of the other benefits include: smiling makes you look more attractive, it improves your mood, relieves stress, boosts the immune system and lowers blood pressure. All from a simple movement! Start smiling 🙂
Engage in a random act of kindness
Pay for someone’s coffee, help a stranger carry heavy bags, make a donation to a charity or fundraiser. It is so easy to do and it provides you with a happy feeling throughout the rest of your day. Even witnessing someone else doing a good deed can give you a feeling of joy.

Watch funny videos
One of the best ways I know to get into a ‘happy’ state is watching something funny. Like smiling, laughter has a plethora of benefits. It boosts immunity, lowers stress, decreases pain, relaxes your muscles and prevents heart disease. If done a lot it even gives your abs a workout!  So go watch a funny movie or TV show , seek out funny people, share a good joke or a funny story, host game night with friends or play with a pet.

Decorate for the holidays
It’s this time of year! Don’t put it off, take advantage and experience the warmth and coziness that happens when you decorate your home for the holidays. It is a simple yet effective way to bring some happiness into your home and into your life!

Gardening

Gardening is one of the most satisfying and peaceful activities you can ever engage in. It has a meditative effect that not only affects your mental wellness but your physical well-being too. Even if you don’t have a backyard or a garden you can create an indoor one and feel the same happiness tending to your pots of herbs, flowers or vegetables. Flower Power Fundraising has beautiful seeds and bulbs that are sure to take your woes and your supporters woes far, far away 🙂
