Do This Now: Anjali Mudra
Close your eyes and bring your palms to touch in front of your heart in Anjali (offering) mudra. Feel the warmth of your hands as the fingertips connect to one another. Allow your collarbones to broaden as your heart swells with breath. Invite your shoulders to melt down your back, and a hint of a smile to curl at the edges of your lips. This gesture, this offering of love toward your deepest self, can help cultivate a sense of calm, presence, and gratitude.

The Story of You: Writing as a Tool for Self-Discovery
“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold
story inside you.”
—Maya Angelou, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings
Why do we write? To tell stories, to organize our world, to communicate with loved ones, to capture what we might otherwise forget. But writing can also be a direct line to our deepest self, a path to understanding who and why we are. It can reveal what we didn’t know we knew, and open doors to a wider awareness of all that lies within and around us. It can heal our past and enrich our present, comfort and inspire us. In the words of Anne Frank, “I can shake off everything as I write; my sorrows disappear, my courage is reborn.”
