Good morning fellow Good Eggs! It’s a wonderful Tuesday morning. We’re working on enhancing our relationships with one another. It’s been proven that high quality relationships lead to more happiness. So let’s make those relationships the best they can be!
Yesterday, we learned about Body Awareness and that we need to identify our body reactions and thoughts during conversations. We want to make sure we send the right signals to the ones we love. Another “mindful listening” tool is eye contact.
Recognize your eye contact during conversations. Are you maintaining eye contact? Are you getting distracted?

Take moments throughout the conversation to identify your eye contact, and figure out if you need to reconnect.
It’s Tasty Tuesday and today’s juicy food (that’s perfect for summer) is…

Watermelon Fun Facts
Farmers in Japan have grown watermelons in different shapes. Square watermelons were created because they are easier to stack and ship. They also were created to fit perfectly inside small Japanese refrigerators.
The heaviest watermelon that ever existed was 350.5 pounds. That’s basically the size of an NFL lineman!
Watermelons are called “watermelon” because they contain 92% water.
Early explorers used watermelons as canteens.
Watermelons were depicted through hieroglyphics in Ancient Egypt on the walls of buildings. Also, watermelons were placed in the tombs of kings to nourish them in the afterlife.
I hope you enjoyed learning another “mindful listening” strategy and discovered something new about watermelon.
Have a great Tuesday!
