        1. Love this post! It’s a great reminder that our days really are small blocks of time all strung together to make for 24 hours. What we do with even those 5 minute blocks can make a huge difference in our lives or someone else’s!

          Your tips are some of my favorites. Going for a quick walk, working with plants, taking some time to just breathe in and relax, be kind/show love — perfect ways to spend our time!
