Could a single thought make a difference in the world? A difference in your life? In your day? In this moment?
Based on personal experiences, many people would respond Yes, Yes, Yes and Yes. They share stories when an attitude of compassion or thoughts of goodwill changed their life. Scientific research supports that practicing compassion meditation changes the brain, improves the ability to manage stress and strengthens skills in empathy. A study with preschoolers found that children are more likely to share their stickers when practicing compassion meditation. And meditation is not required to benefit! With small acts of kindness, brain scans register what neuroscientists refer to as “the warm glow effect”. Maybe we should call this the Warm Glow Challenge.

- “Offer thoughts”? ~ You do not have to say these thoughts out loud. Simply think/offer/wish them to someone.

Summing It Up
Inspire Health + Happiness Around the World is a simple, 31-day challenge with a big purpose. On December 1st, you think/offer/wish thoughts of goodness to 1 person. Each day you add an additional wish of goodness. (NOTE: You do not have to know or be with the person you are sending the well wishes. It truly is a thought.) On the final day of the month you send 31 thoughts/wishes/offerings of wellness. (NOTE: It doesn’t have to be 31 different people. If you send 31 wishes to the same person, you succeed!) Support is offered every day of December. Inspiration arrives in your inbox if you sign up for the challenge or you can visit Poe Wellness Solutions or Facebook and find the same inspiration.
