Feel Good Friday: The Buddy System
It’s well known that the world needs more love in it. Luckily with small actions you can make it happen. Here is a cute story to get you inspired.
Donovan Shaw was at an Oakland Raiders game last Thursday when he noticed a boy sitting by himself. The boy was apparently waiting for his dad to join him. Donovan noticed the boy looked really sad and this didn’t sit well with him. So, he decided to ask the boy to sit with him and his friends. On top of that he also explained the game to him and tried his best to make him feel comfortable. The boy had a great time and Donovan came away with a new friend.
This story shows that you can spread love and positivity through small and simple actions. These actions have a ripple effect we can’t ignore. What could you do today to spread the love?

Smiling and laughing has been proven to reduce stress in our lives! When we smile or laugh it releases neurotransmitters in our brain called endorphins, which are in charge of making us happy and helping to relieve stress. Remember to check back bi-weekly.
