Moving forward first requires a step to be taken.
Happy Hump Day!
Reminder today; there are many ways to increase your happiness in life.
One of the most simple and tangible ones is by letting go of control.
Why should we do that, and how do we even begin?
First, why do we feel the need to control?
The desire to be able to control our surroundings and circumstances is ingrained into our consciousness.
This is because the more we know about our world, the safer we feel.
On the other hand, the less we know, the more scared we feel.
The need to control is directly rooted in fear specifically, the fear of what might happen outside our control.
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
THE BALANCING ACT
One of the most exciting things about human life is that at every moment we can if we so wish; choose to do something new.
Even in the most challenging circumstances, something can shift.
Just the tiniest thing and the whole picture changes.
Just feeling a new sensation or trying a new experience can open a new vision, a completely different way of seeing.
This is how we move forward.
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.
EARLY IN THE MORNING, you rise before the sun.
You look out onto a stunning, still lake and notice the outline of the mountains before the sun creeps its way up to the horizon.
You spend these quiet moments in stillness and gratitude.
As the sun makes its appearance over the mountains, it illuminates the water, creating a mirror for the sky above.
You turn your face toward the sun, determined to make it a great day.
Incredible things await you today.
PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth.
We stand by this and continue to do daily; walk, meditation, and Qigong.
