DIY “5 Days of Closeness”

Do-It-Yourself "5 Days of Closeness" ... Make time for a unity boost

Little things really can make a big difference. Creating your own DIY “5 Days of Closeness” is a fun, creative way to foster closeness in little ways with someone who we are close to, or want to be closer to.

In this video series, I demonstrate how to spend a few minutes daily for a one-week unity boost to pay special attention to your beloved. It’s quick, easy, and enjoyable to do, as shown in these recordings for the week of November 10-14, 2020. Come up with your own theme or take inspiration from other places, such as the resources described in the videos below. ~ Brenda Dow

The pandemic has limited what we can do; however, we're only TRULY limited by our own imagination of how things could be.
