If you are brave enough to say goodbye, life will reward you with a new hello.
Let us begin our Monday with a positive vibe!
Keep moving forward!
There are hundreds of languages in the world, but a smile speaks to them all.
A smile not only crosses geographic boundaries, but it also crosses the boundaries of culture, background, age, and beliefs.
What is more, it works the same magic in them all!
A warm smile can make a child feel better, as surely as it can cheer up an old man.
It can soften hearts and firm up commitments.
It can mend friendships and break tensions.
It can reassure and give support. It can say ‘I love you’ and ‘congratulations.’
It can make deals.
It can make friendships.
It can make memories or even make your day.
But perhaps, most important of all, a smile can make the world a better place for the person who gives it; you!
So, this Monday let us start with a smile!
Keep moving forward!
Delay discounting is a psychological term that describes how people usually choose smaller awards that they can obtain sooner over long-term rewards, thus discounting the delay.
For example, you might choose to spend your money on a new tech device now, rather than saving it for a larger goal, such as your retirement fund.
When you imagine a future retirement in which you are traveling and excited, however, you connect more to that future version of yourself.
It becomes more real and possible.
You will therefore be more likely to invest in that future retirement and overcome delay discounting.
As Dan and I have been sharing and continuing the book from last week, Ten-Minute Relaxation, For Mind and Body by Jennie Harding, until the end.
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 4; SENSORY/AWAKENING
As it was mentioned at the very beginning, some stress is good for you.
Positive stress is the kind of feeling that is generated when you are very happy.
When you are enjoying what you are doing, and you feel very fulfilled.
If you are sunk in a very negative attitude, your energy will feel very sluggish.
Your interest in what surrounds you is limited, and your body processes are slow and cold.
Getting in touch with your senses and waking up brings warmth, interest, and liveliness to your experience.
You will look farther and see farther and will be inspired.
As Dan and I start a new year; we will be posting daily 365 morning meditations for joyful days all year long.
The book is SUNRISE GRATITUDE by Emily Silva.
WAITING FOR SOMETHING CAN BE DIFFICULT, especially when we are attached to it.
When we want something, we can fixate on it, forgetting everything else that surrounds us.
In times like these, it is important to remember that everything happens when it is supposed to.
Appreciate you are here now.
Anticipate what is ahead, but also appreciate your current situation.
Then when what you want arrives, your heart and mind will already be calibrated toward gratitude.
PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth.
We stand by this and continue to do daily; walk, meditation, and Qigong.
If you would like to follow with us; hash tag words #walk, #meditation #Qigong on the right of the main blog page.
Until Tuesday, life is about moving on, accepting changes,
and looking forward to what makes you stronger and more complete.
