The “Savor Lining”

“Savor Lining” is a play on words of the common term “Silver Lining,” which means “a consoling aspect of a difficult situation.” Similarly, Savor Lining represents the joy that can be found in everyday moments, including difficult or stressful situations.
While it’s easy to find joy in happy and fun moments, it’s just as meaningful to be able to find the joy in challenging or stressful ones.
The knowledge and skills gained from Savor Lining’s mental fitness events will help you to improve your mental health along with the ability to recognize and savor the joy in your days.
