Thank you, Cedar Point

Tuesday, September 20th, 2011

I recently spent a night camping in Cedar Point, East Hampton, NY.  What a beautiful spot of the earth.  Camping in the woods, and a few minute walk to the beach.  Watched a gorgeous sunset and moon rise from opposite ends of Gardiner’s Bay.  Had a campfire and roasted marshmallows while listening to some great tunes.  My friend, Mary Beth, and I woke to do yoga on the beach the one morning we were there.  In her defense, she did make it into a perfectly straight headstand.  Way to go, MB.  I prematurely shot the photo and was not tech savvy enough to get the cell phone camera to the right place to take another shot.  I am working on both, learning to use a cell phone camera and my headstand.  If you are ever looking to camp on the east end of Long Island, this is the spot.

Wisdom of sharing gratitude

Tuesday, November 9th, 2010

This was sent to me by a friend, and comes from the website DailyGood.org.  I truly believe in the power of sharing gratitude and being grateful, and now it is linked to our health.

“The miracle is this: the more we share the more we have. –Leonard Nimoy

Fact of the Day:
A recent Harvard Business School study found that giving a sum of money to someone else lifted well-being than spending it on oneself. Preventative medicine professor Stephen Post writes that giving to others has been shown to increase health benefits in people with chronic illness. Neuroeconomics researcher Paul Zak found that people who share and experience gratitude release oxytocin, a hormone known to relieve stress and improve immune function. The research is piling up- sharing is good for happiness and health. Why? It builds trust, releases health-boosting hormones, increases positive social interaction with others, and promotes cooperation, and much more.” [ more ]
