HeartMath shares Earth Day video - one simple act of care could make a difference

Summary: 

For awareness of Earth Day and honoring our planet Earth, HeartMath would like to share this  Earth Day video message with you. What if one simple act of care could make a difference? Today and every day we need to care for our planet and especially for people, because people are part of this planet too. 

 
Care Changes Lives and Our Planet Earth, too.
 
When we get out of sorts, stressed, frustrated or overwhelmed it can distract us from our true intention to care more for others and our planet.
 
Care is a valuable and vital resource; it revitalizes and acts as a soothing tonic for the human system. Caring is a powerful motivator; it inspires us and gently revitalizes us. It comes from the depth of our being, the core of our hearts. Ask yourself: Is my caring adding quality to my life and our planet Earth? Increasing genuine care can change our lives and perhaps the world.
