Happiness Level One – Physical Refreshment

Sometimes sadness can creep up on us simply because we’re physically tired or worn out. We need to take good care of our bodies and make sure they’re working for us, not against us. Happiness Level One can come to the rescue in a very practical way.

Sorrow can be alleviated by good sleep, a bath and a glass of wine.

– St. Thomas Aquinas

It is not proper to despise bodily life; rather “man… is obliged to regard his body as good and honorable since God has created it and will raise it up on the last day”.

– Gaudium et Spes, 14

PRAYER: Lord, give me wisdom to guard against sorrow and take simple steps to refresh my spirit.

APPLICATION: Today I will take some time of rest or refreshment that will renew me and lift my spirits.
