The search for happiness lies within each human being. What is happiness? That answer may vary from individual to individual, but there is always a common thread that reflects internal peace. Achieving internal peace is a difficult yet at the same time a remarkably simple process. The end result would can somewhat be described as being able to look at yourself in the mirror at night and being able to tell yourself that you did well today. It is not so much of a destination but a journey. Internal peace is not achieved with perfect harmony every hour every day. It is a process of growth that results in a ever so little bit better “me” daily. It is a journey of doing our best – whatever that may be in the moment. Of not criticizing ourselves and others around us. It is a journey of self acceptance and self improvement. We need to mindful of our emotional state throughout the day and beware of our pitfalls. We need to learn to redirect ourselves in the beginning of a downward spiral, and to remove ourselves from individuals who tear us down and undermine us. It is a long journey but certainly one worth taking.

Most of us are relatively health conscious when it comes to our physical bodies. People are eating better and cleaner foods. More individuals and families turn away from GMOs, gluten, and sugar, and opt for organic, whenever possible. People exercise and consume daily supplements to assist their bodies in recovering from illnesses or to simply sustain health and youthfulness.
Sadly, many of us neglect our emotional, spiritual and mental health, when it comes to the same daily management routine. How many of us meditate or pray daily? Do we watch what we allow into our brains as carefully as we watch our diets for our bodies? How many hours of mindless and mentally numbing, even deadening material do we allow into our brains via television, music and radio? Are the messages that we hear uplifting and positive? Do we sustain life for our feelings and our thoughts? That’s why we provide daily mental vitamins. Commit to reading something positive an uplifting every day. Monitor your consumption of mental and emotional junk food. And follow us on Twitter or Instagram for your daily dose of mental vitamins.
