Things That Are Good For The Soul

Merriam-Webster's online dictionary defines soul as "a person's total self; the immaterial essence, animating principle, or actuating cause of an individual life."  Most of us strive to exercise and eat healthy foods to keep our bodies in good condition. We read and study to keep our brains active and healthy. But, what about our souls? How do we feed our souls?

Here are some things that are good for my soul:

  • spotting a rainbow
  • laughing until I cry
  • hearing a child's laughter
  • having someone give me a hug
  • telling someone I love them
  • petting my dog
  • receiving a compliment from a stranger
  • watching the snowfall
  • seeing an elderly couple holding hands
  • listening to beautiful music
  • the scent of lavendar
  • remembering my dad's smile
  • saying prayers
  • holding a baby in my arms
  • spending time with my kids
  • staying up late to read a good book
  • sleeping in, tucked in a warm bed
  • thundershowers
  • connecting with a friend
  • coming up with a spectacular idea
What about you? Will you share some of the things that feed your soul?
