Guest blogger:

Melanie Galioto
Founder of Your Smile Yoga

Guess what today is?? Exercise!
Love it or hate it, exercise has so many positive health benefits.  We use exercise to release pent up energy, maintain a healthy weight, to help us lose weight, and it’s good for improving your mood and memory, too!
Here are a few ways that Exercise can make you a Happier person:
1. It increases dopamine in your brain.
    Dopamine is one of the feel good chemicals in your brain.  Exercise is one of the best ways to increase dopamine production (just like laughter!).
2. It helps to reduce anxiety and depression.
    Again, exercise helps to release the feel good chemicals as well as increase the production of them.
3. It helps to reduce stress.
    Check this out…exercise is a form of stress, a low-level variety.  The more you expose your body to this type of low-level stressor, the more you are to better handle others types of stress.
4. It helps to build your self-confidence.
    There’s nothing like a great workout to boost your self-confidence! Your feeling great and you are proud of your accomplishment – AS YOU SHOULD BE!! YES!
5. It helps you get better sleep.
    As you remember, sleep is the fist component of SMILE.  Good quantity AND quality sleep matters. Exercise helps you get those much needed zzzzz’s.
6. Helps with coping skills.
    When life throws you the inevitable curveball (it does and it will, believe me!) exercise can help you cope with the intense emotions.  It is a great go to help you cope, release the pent up energy, and helps to keep you away from drugs or alcohol.
7. It increases your brain cells!
    Yep, getting some good cardio into your exercise routine has been shown to increase brain cells which helps to improve it’s overall performance.
Exercise can take on a variety of forms.  Try several and see what is best for you.  Because, the more you like it, the more likely you are going to do it!
Try Some of These:
1.  Yoga – yoga has so many styles, there is sure to be one that will mesh with you. Hatha, Hot, Kundalini, Warrior, Yin, Vinyasa, Acro, SUP, and oh, so many more! Did you know that I LOVE yoga?
2.  Zumba – dance and sweat and dance!
3.  Dance – Not a Zumba fan? Try taking some dance lessons 🙂 We are HUGE Dancing with the Stars fans and I am determined to take some salsa lessons! What style of dance would you like to try?
5.  Barre – tiny micro-movements along with cardio for a full body workout.  INTENSE!
6. Martial Arts – learn something new and self-defense, too.
7. Walking – perhaps the best and easiest of all. Just grab your shoes and go.  No gym or studio membership needed. PLUS, it gets you outdoors which in and of itself is good for you and your mood.
Really, the list can go on and on. Be creative, find a workout buddy, get your body moving and get yourself feeling (and looking) GREAT! Exercise helps to boost your self-esteem, self-worth, and self-confidence too. Remember to love your body because it really does love you 🙂
I hope you have enjoyed these past 5 days of learning how important it is to SMILE! You really do need to incorporate these 5 things into your routine to make you successful at life!
Keep moving!
Namaste my friend,
P.S. Do you have a friend that could use some of these helpful tips? Have them sign up for the webinar over at  How to Self-Care When You Don’t Care.

Activity idea for positive thinking

I follow Seth Godin.

I read 100% of his material.

I agree with him about 97% of the time. Once I didn’t agree with him on something – but ya’ know what – it was such a little thing I disagreed on that I don’t even recall what it was at this time.

We, recreational therapists teach positive thinking, building on strengths, becoming successful.

Seth Godin had a really neat activity called, “make two lists.”

I believe Godn’s two list activity could be used as an excellent intervention by recreational therapists.

World’s Best Friend – Pet Rainbow


Meet The World’s Best Friend…Pet Rainbow

A plush toy on a mission to unite a divided world.

JUNE 15TH, 2017: Today, Alyssa Pulice, Creative Director, announces the launch of The Pet Rainbow Project. The goal of The Pet Rainbow Project is to teach core values that inspire positive behaviors so that together we can put an end to racism, bullying, violence and hate crimes.

“Pet Rainbow is a soft touch that we need in our divided world. It’s time that we accept our differences and promote a message of unity” said Alyssa Pulice, Creative Director for the Pet Rainbow Project.

By associating the rainbow’s colors with core values, Pet Rainbow brings to light a fun and engaging way that not only promotes our positive behaviors today, it helps create the positive leaders of tomorrow.

Pet Rainbow comes complete with a Core Values Booklet, seven Value Crayons, Pet Rainbow Stickers, an official Certificate of Adoption as well as a charming Pet Rainbow house that may be colored to match the personality of the owner’s very own Pet Rainbow.

One Smile is all it Takes to Make a World of Difference

The Pet Rainbow Project is dedicated to giving a percentage of its profit to gifting Pet Rainbows to Children’s Hospitals throughout the world.

In our Kickstarter campaign, we also make it possible for backers to gift Pet Rainbows to Children’s Hospitals of their choice.

We have already contacted top Children’s Hospitals throughout the USA and Canada and they cannot wait to share Pet Rainbow’s uplifting message with their children.

Pet Rainbow is available for preorder on Kickstarter starting at $15 for the complete Pet Rainbow package.
