I had the opportunity to visit with members of the state 4-H staff in Louisiana last week. While there, one of the highlights was visiting the Louisiana 4-H state museum, located in Avoyelles Parish in central Louisiana. This museum highlighted not only 4-H history in Louisiana but also told the story of agriculture in the state.
Practicing gratitude is an important piece of mindfulness. Gratitude helps us tap into positive emotions and experiences, improves our health, helps us
overcome adversity, and builds strong relationships. This week we challenge you to write down three things every day that you are grateful for. At the end of the week, review your list and consider sharing it with a friend or family member. How did it make you feel to be grateful every day?
