Feel Good Friday - Happy Birthday Fiona

Fiona the Hippo just turned one this past week. It’s been a tough year as she was born premature and underweight. The zoo celebrated in style with a watermelon cake and her fans serenading her. Check out this video to learn more about her first year and the challenges she's overcome.

If you ever feel overwhelmed just remember that you are not alone. Follow in Fiona’s lead and take things one step at a time!

The idea of Feel Good Fridays started because we believe the simple things that bring a smile to our face, are some of the best things. 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 for next week’s Feel Good Friday!
