Happy February, SynerLINK Friends,
Thank you so much for your patience this month. Our newsletter was a bit delayed by some technical problems, which are now corrected.
It has also come to my attention that those of you who subscribed in the last few months may not have been receiving this newsletter at all. Apologies for that! Please check out our newsletter archives here: http://www.synergeniusconsulting.com/blog/ There are some great resources there to support your health and happiness, so don’t miss them!
This month, we’re going to be looking at both Foundation 4 – Self – and Foundation 5 – Relationships – because they are so intertwined. Our link of the month is especially relevant in our modern culture, where conflict and disconnection sometimes leads to our thinking or behaving in ways that aren’t as empathetic as we would like when trying to live according to our values and highest purpose. This level of compassion and empathy actually needs to start with our own self-love. This article is a beautiful explanation of why self-compassion means more compassion for everyone!
If you enjoy the newsletter, please forward to friends or colleagues who may enjoy receiving it, as well. They can click the links at the bottom of this newsletter to subscribe, or to follow us on Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn, or go to our home page:
As always, I welcome suggestions, comments, or interesting links. Please send to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Best wishes for your health and happiness,
Chanel Heermann, MD
QUOTE OF THE MONTH
It is not easy to find happiness in ourselves, and it is not possible to find it elsewhere.

THIS MONTH’S LINKS
How to express gratitude in a way that increases joy for both giver and receiver!
Facts don’t convince people – connection does.
It would be easy to read this article and criticize ourselves for all the times when we aren’t able to spend time with our children. Instead, take it easy on yourself – but be aware of your integrity in honoring your own word, with big people and with small.
Great TED talk from the founder of Momastery. Lots of good life lessons.
A BIT OF HUMOR
Not exactly humor, just sweet and touching.
