There are times in life that make you stand still and take note; I think we can all agree that the last few months have given us pages to reflect on. Even though this time has been laden with change, uncertainty, and maybe even fear, there is one thing that's still standing, and that's you. We must all find ways to count our blessings and enjoy each season of our lives, no matter what they bring. Finding ways to challenge yourself or relax can feel difficult, and maybe even selfish. With so many facing challenges and lack, it can seem inappropriate to look for joy, but we must. Your life matters and is a blessing. We must take every chance we get to enjoy ourselves. Taking care of one's self is also an act of service to others. When you're filled with contentment and peace, you bring that to the people around you. See our list of ways to bring joy into the everyday. The team at Ameristars Best Care wishes you nothing but the best and beautiful days to come.

Get inspired by art:
Art gives us a chance to escape, an opportunity to express who we are, or wish to be. Pick up that old sketch pad, watch an art show on television, immerse yourself in a beautiful art book, get your hands dirty with paint, or color outside the lines with your grandchildren. Allow yourself to feel free, no matter where you are.
