   “My formula for living is quite simple. I get up in the morning and I go to bed at night. In between, I occupy myself as best I can.”—Cary Grant

Good morning! Grant’s quote makes the formula for a happy life seem so simple, doesn’t it? Confucius said, “Life is simple, it is we who insist on making it complicated.” Each day, why not try the simple advice in this quote: occupy yourself in the best way you can. For, at the end of any day, if we have done our best in all the things we have touched, we can ask for nothing more.

Your Turn:
As you go throughout your day today, keep it simple. Occupy yourself in the best way that you can.

Today’s Affirmation:

I remember to “keep it simple.”

Going further:

Tonight, relax and reflect on how you can keep life simple. Since January is National Hot Tea Month, consider mixing up a healthy homemade tea to enjoy during your reflection.
2 cups brewed tea
1/8 cup honey
2 cinnamon sticks
2 cloves

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and continue heating, without boiling, for five minutes. Strain into mugs and enjoy. Makes 2 servings.
