It is Friday!
Are you excited for the weekend, for the pages are turning for another book and another adventure.
Yes, tomorrow is New Year’s Eve, and the ball will be dropping.
COUNT DOWN; one more day.
As we end this year, this message holds dear to Dan and me.

Only through action that WE take can we obtain the healthy and satisfying life we desire.
Dan and I cannot make your life more satisfying and balanced, only you can.

DECEMBER 30th, Dan, and I thought on continuing this segment with the series with some fun; What is it about December that is so significant during this month?
National Resolution Planning Day – December 30, 2022
I always say that it is good to make goals, for it is something to look forward to.
National Resolution Planning Day is on December 30, and we are getting a head start on setting goals for next year!
Did you know that one in three people fail their New Year’s resolutions in the first month?
And only 10% of people are successful at keeping their resolutions throughout the year?
While there are many reasons for this, it is necessary that you set, and commit to your resolutions before the new year begins for a better chance at success.
But how did the start of a new year become the de facto ‘fresh start’?
It is better to start thinking of your resolutions ahead of time rather than wait for January 1 to come around, as by then it is probably already too late to decide on them.
If you plan your resolutions on December 30 then you’ll be good to go when the New Year arrives.
The ancient tradition of making resolutions for the new year started at the Babylonian festival of Akitu over 4,000 years ago.
Spanning twelve days, the ‘rebirth of the natural world’ would be celebrated by the Babylonians.
A new king would be crowned, crops would be planted, and promises would be made to the gods.
They believed that if these promises or resolutions were kept and fulfilled, the gods would be happy instead of vengeful.
In 153 B.C., to honor the god Janus, January 1 was declared as the start of the new year by the Roman Senate.
Janus was an entity with two faces who had the ability to look backward and forward in time.
This symbolized the end of one year and the beginning of another.
But it wasn’t until 100 years later, in 46 B.C., that the concept of the new year being on January 1 was made official and effective by Julius Caesar.
Just like the Babylonians, the Romans would pledge promises to their god Janus about their behavior for the coming year.
During the Middle Ages, the ‘Peacock Vow’ would be renewed at the end of each year.
Essentially, these were resolutions that knights committed to uphold the code of knighthood.
Knights would place their hands on a cooked peacock and renew their oaths to protecting honor and chivalry.
The phrase ‘new year resolution’ appeared for the first time in a Boston newspaper in 1813, and from there onwards, modern resolutions became a thing.
Until New Year’s Eve Day, there must be a positive and negative in everything in the universe to complete a circuit or circle, without which there would be no activity, no motion.
Time is precious and is priceless, so Dan and I will continue each day to pull from a box of 365 inspirational quotes, one quote and share with you.
IF IT WERE NOT FOR OUR TROUBLES, WE WOULD NEVER APPRECIATE HAPPINESS.
Today Dan and I will be continuing the book, Ten-Minute Relaxation, For Mind and Body by Jennie Harding.
Whenever you are feeling under pressure, ten minutes is all you need to relax totally, using tools that are always with you; your senses.
This book is packed full of wonderfully simple ideas and exercises for using sight, taste, smell, hearing, and touch and that vital sixth sense of intuition to rebalance your energies and bring you back into harmony with the natural world around you.
Identify your favorite sensory relaxation solutions and combat that stress!
Per Dan and my experience this is another component in keeping ourselves healthy, meditation.
By using your five senses, you can learn to relax in just ten minutes.
CHAPTER 2; THE SENSORY JOURNEY; TOUCH
TOUCH THE ESSENCE OF CARE-
SWITCHING ON THE SENSE
Continuing today, BABY, AND INFANT MASSAGE
After the bath is a particularly good time to work, just before bedtime.
You need to work in a very warm room and have your baby lying comfortably on warm towels.
Some gentle music and soft light help to create a warm and soothing atmosphere.
You can use the massage as a kind of game.
This is an opportunity to laugh, smile and make lovely positive contact with your baby.
Starting Monday, BABY BLENDS
The PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth.
We stand by this and continue to do daily; walk, meditation, and Qigong.
Until Saturday, the same one who mistreated you will end up needing you. It is the circle of life.
