Let’s turn toward the light, Darling; and in doing so, physically and spiritually, we impact our health and overall well-being so that we can take ownership and responsibility. We’ve all been cooped up and restricted way too long—a year, in fact—and now that we’re approaching a beautiful Spring and Summer, I encourage all of us to really pay attention to our mood—our state of mind—which is directly affected by light.

We can do the same—and in many different ways.
