Happy Sunday tomorrow begins the second week of November.
Finally, November is a month for thanksgiving that also ushers in the holiday season.
It is a period when the fall season comes to an end and winter starts.
Yet, despite its dreadful winter, the month offers plenty of things to enjoy and be thankful for.
This is a month to pause and reflect on our blessings and give thanks for our lives and those we love.
Today, the second benefit of self-care when stress about a major life change takes over your life.
It slows your pace through life.
Taking time to nurture yourself whether it is physically, emotionally, or spiritually; naturally causes you to slow down.
Even if you choose to go for a run, which is speeding up your usual pace, you are likely to be slowing down your mind as you focus on your steps, the environment around you and you are breathing.
If you choose to meditate, take a long bubble bath, or have a massage, you are allowing yourself to slow down.
Changing the speed at which you engage with your life, especially when a difficult event has knocked you down, will shift your perspective and allow you to take a break from the chaos.
Think about moving through your life in second gear rather than fifth gear.
Would that give you a chance to notice more things?
Tomorrow, the third benefit of self-care when stress about a major life change takes over your life.
NOVEMBER 6th, Dan, and I thought on continuing this segment with the series with some fun; What is it about NOVEMBER that is so significant during this month?
Daylight Saving Day – November 6, 2022
Daylight Saving Day, occurring this year on November 6, is officially the end of the Daylight-Saving period which began on March 10.
This means that not only do you get an extra hour of sleep, but it will also become darker earlier in the afternoon.
Brace yourself, winter is coming.
Daylight Savings Day is always on the first Sunday in November.
Make the most of that extra hour in bed!
Though civilizations have been changing their clocks to match the rise and setting time of the sun since ancient Rome, the modern Daylight-Saving concept wasn’t proposed until 1895 by New Zealand entomologist, George Hudson.
He presented his study to the Wellington Philosophical Society proposing a two-hour daylight-saving shift.
He followed up with an 1898 paper after considerable interest was expressed from the city of Christchurch.
However, many publications and historians credit Daylight Saving to English builder and outdoorsman William Willet, who came up with his own solution in 1905 when he observed how many Londoners slept through a large part of a summer’s day.
Two years later he published his proposal to advance the clocks an hour ahead during the summer months.
Robert Pearce, a Liberal Party member of parliament, took up the proposal and introduced the first Daylight Saving Bill to the House of Commons on February 12, 1908.
However, the bill did not become law, with several other bills failing in the following years.
Port Arthur, Ontario was the first city in the world to enact a Daylight-Saving Time on July 1, 1908.
Orillia, Ontario soon followed in the city’s footsteps.
Austria-Hungary and the German Empire adopted Daylight Saving Time on April 30, 1916, to conserve coal during wartime.
Britain, its allies, and other neutral European nations soon followed suit.
Russia and a few other countries waited until the next year, and the U.S. adopted the concept in 1918.
When the war ended, many lawmakers abandoned Daylight Saving with the exceptions of Canada, the UK, France, Ireland, and the parts of the U.S.
It became common again during World War II and was widely adopted in America and Europe in the 1970s because of the energy crisis.

You can't move things by not moving.
Sometimes the most productive thing you can do is relax.
You can do anything, but not everything.
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.
YOU GOTTA BE IN THE NOW TO CREATE AND EXPERIENCE THE NOW!
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; SMELL
SMELLS AND MOODS-
SCENTING YOUR ENVIRONMENT-
Aromatherapy is an excellent way of harnessing the power of the sense of smell to improve your environment.
The idea of scenting space is not new; for centuries, aromas have been used to create a particular atmosphere in sacred places like temples and churches.
In modern times, aromas are being used in hospitals, schools, hotels, and even shops to improve public environment.
As I ponder over all that I have learned, I have come to find that we all have our own blueprint.
Our bodies are precious and there are many components in taking care of them.
Throughout the blog, Dan and I have related the separate ways through body, heart, and soul.
It is all about power of knowledge and learning to take care of yourself, keeping your cells happy.
Our immune system is one of the key factors in keeping healthy.
It is important to know how it works!
Cancer: Civilization's - No. 2 Killer
Continuing today on Important--Note Well,
Dr Joseph Issels of Germany, who has researched and treated cancer for fifty years, asserts that poisoning from infected teeth is one of the prime causes of cancer, and this viewpoint is supported by Dr Mulhim Hassan of Lebanon in his book Prevention and Cure of Cancer.
However, of all the many factors which in one way or another contribute to the deterioration of the milieu interieur and predispose the body to cancer, constipation appears to be by far the worst.
It is important to remember that a regular daily bowel movement does not mean the absence of constipation; what counts is the time food residues take to transit the digestive tract.
On the traditional Western diet of mainly cooked unsuitable food the transit time is about seventy-two hours, which means that regular or not, there are always stagnant putrefying residues occupying the colon producing carcinogenic substances, some of which provoke local problems and some of which perfuse back into the bloodstream.
Sir William Arbuthnot Lane, the famous British surgeon, repeatedly emphasized he had never known a single case of cancer that had not been preceded by prolonged intestinal stasis.
The PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth.
We stand by this and continue to do daily; walk, meditation, and Qigong.
Until Monday, it is not a daily increase, but a daily decrease. Hack away at the inessentials.
