Creative Tools & Techniques for Self Healing

Healing lies in doing things that you love.  Plan something to look forward to each day to connect yourself with your inner soul.  Imagination is a must.  Your immune system doesn’t know the difference between an actual day at the beach or one you might dream up while sitting in silence.
