    Keeping Small Animals Safe in the Cold
    Earlier this year, I wrote an article about keeping small animals safe in hot weather.

    4 Simple Grounding Exercises You Can Do Anytime

One of the most common forms of this is meditation, a practice which involves being in a quiet place – often alone – and calming the mind by focusing on breathing or other physical sensations. This may seem like an impossible feat if you are in a situation where you’re feeling overwhelmed in a place that is public or noisy. However, there are several grounding exercises that can be done anywhere, anytime you feel the need to take a break and clear your head.
