I talked with several Vet’s who were in Iraq, and Afghanistan and they told me the thing the liked the most was new socks. They said they rarely got good socks. They were a hot commodity and they really looked forward to putting on fresh new socks. Made sense after i thought about it, Just a thought to share.
Thank you John!

Now that most of uws are stuck indoors and stressed with the unknown, yoga and meditation are important tools to keep our bodies moving and our nervous systems regulated. iRest is a research-based, trauma-sensitive self inquiry. It is a healing mindfulness practice where you can build a sense of peace and ease within the entire body and mind. Tell me who can’t use more of that right now? This can be done anywhere where you feel comfortable, seated or lying down. Take some time for yourself and travel inward. https://youtu.be/7dFXkzESr0g
