If you find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn't lead anywhere.
Happy Hump Day!
This week Dan and I are sharing important steps and actions you can take, to ensure that you will carry out your resolutions and plans.
The first step; a well-defined goal.
Without a well-defined goal you will be just drifting and might lose interest and stop what you have started doing.
A general and unclear goal is not enough, and it does not matter whether it is a big or a small goal.
In both cases, it should be well defined.
If you want to go and see a movie, you need to know which movie you want to see.
If you want a new car, you need to know what kind of car you want, and if you want to make changes in your life, you should know what kind of changes you want to make.
This new year Dan and I will be continuing the book, 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 2; THE SENSORY JOURNEY; TOUCH
TOUCH THE ESSENCE OF CARE-
SWITCHING ON THE SENSE; ACUPRESSURE FOR STRESS RELIEF
Acupressure, like acupuncture, is another technique that can help deal with stress.
It is based on the idea that our physical structure is not just made up of bones, muscles, and tendons.
There are also energy lines called meridians that follow specific pathways throughout the whole body, passing through all the major organs on the way.
Applying pressure to specific points releases the flow of energy that has been stuck and rebalances the channel, the organ affected, and the whole system.
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.
APPROACHING EACH DAY WITH A SENSE OF WONDER and excitement.
Today is an adventure one you’ve never been on before.
There is always something new to learn, someone new to encounter, and something new to see.
Even if your days seem routine, embrace the elements of the unknown.
Notice the tiny mysteries each day holds and become an explorer filled with awe as you enter your day.
With eyes open toward wonder, it is amazing what you will discover!
The PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth.
We stand by this and continue to do daily; walk, meditation, and Qigong.
Until Thursday, there is not one path. There is not even the right path.
