Green holiday tips - kindness, how it affects the world & our health

-- Holiday Activities Involving Reuse --

Save all of the cards you receive on awareness days, holidays, birthdays, valentines days and get well cards; the ones you receive, the ones you've made an error in and don't want to send ... they are all useful.

Gather the family around your table and get them to make puzzles or fridge magnets for their young friends, class mates or loved ones. These can also make wonderful projects to create gifts for senior's centers, women's centers, children's centers or classes and to support centers for the poor.

First - sort the cards into themes and then sort them from large to small in size.

Puzzles are easily created by gluing 2 cards together so that there is a picture on either side. place the cards under a weight like a large book to make sure the 2 cards have a good solid seal. Once the glue has cured, cut the cards into puzzle pieces of a variety of shapes and sizes.

To make fridge magnets simply choose interesting images, cut them out and glue a small piece of magnet to the back. Strips of very thin magnets can likely be found at your local craft or "dollar" store. Alternatively reuse those unsolicited fridge magnets you have received from pizza places, realtors or junk mail. These are very thin and easy to cut with a pair of scissors and because the magnets are very light, only a small section of the magnet will be necessary.

-- Conscious Discussions Radio --

Today on the Conscious Discussions radio we had the pleasure of discussing the incredible power of random acts of kindness with CJ Scarlet. We discussed how random acts improve our immune system, release endorphins, create a warm and beautiful community, validate the humanity of those around us, and much much more. Please come hear this interview - you won't want to miss it!

To access today's interview simply click on the hyper-linked show title here in the blog, click on the link on the right of this page for the Conscious Discussions talk radio show or click on the image below - either of these will get you there ;)
