Love is ordinary. Love is medicine. Love is our human superpower. Practice loving the most ordinary things about your day, the color of your pencil, a wave of hair, the cat's purr. Bursts of love grow into twinkles of joy, these lead to bouts or happiness and appreciation. Love is ordinary, basic, powerfully healing.


Take care of your mental health during these trying times.
