What does November symbolism mean to you?
November is a tricky month, at least in the Northern Hemisphere.
It isn’t easy to dress when you don’t know if it will be sunny or snow.
This month represents the transition from the autumn harvest season to that of winter.
This is the month that hosts Thanksgiving in the United States, a day to reap the harvest and celebrate the community’s or family’s collective bounty.
November seems to represent the final stages of one’s life, with winter being death.
However, since all things are reborn in some way or another, November seeks to remind us not to fear the winter season, for spring will follow it.
Life is constantly changing; thus, it would be excellent to think of change and embrace it to have a more fruitful life.
Indeed, change is just part of life, and you need to anticipate and accommodate it when it finely arrives to reduce any adverse results in your life.
Again, November symbolism meaning indicates that you may not like change heading your direction, but you need to respond to them positively to better your life.
So, you need to find out better ways to adapt, view change, and accept it to better your life.
Again, do not watch as things happen but get involved and become the change initiator.
Additionally, the meaning of November symbolism shows that it would be wise to boost your emotional intelligence during a moment of transition.
Do not allow emotions to cloud your mind but try to relax and think more objectively.
So whatever situation is unsettling, try to manage your reactions.
However, do not suppress your feelings but see to express them nicely.
For instance, you can talk to a trusted friend or loved one about how the thought of change makes you uncomfortable.
The fifth benefit of self-care when stress about a major life change takes over your life.
You can focus on what’s important.
Especially during a major upheaval in your life, showing yourself kindness and compassion help you to keep your eye on the most important things in your life right now.
Self-care allows you to set healthy boundaries, so you are not extending beyond your limits.
Understanding what’s most important gives you the basis from which you can make better choices and decisions.
When you know what to focus on, you become more effective and productive.
Tomorrow, the sixth benefit of self-care when stress about a major life change takes over your life.
NOVEMBER 9th, 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?
Chaos Never Dies Day – November 9, 2022
Chaos Never Dies Day is on November 9 and we’re already going a little nut finding ways to embrace the, well, chaos of the world we live in.
Turns out, there’s no real way to escape the day-to-day crazy that life throws our way.
Rather than run from it, we’ve found the top ways to temper chaos and make it fun.
Chaos is a state of disorder or confusion, and it appears in every facet of the human experience since before the term even came about.
In Greek mythology, Khaos is one of the primordial gods who precedes the universe itself.
So, basically, chaos, and all its confusion and disorder, predates the universe, making it an integral part of life!
While the specific origin of Chaos Never Dies Day is unknown, what is known is that chaos is an inevitable part of life.
Even as people propagate the idea of slowing down, taking a break, and taking some time for yourself (all of which can be a good idea in the right capacity), these won’t stop the inevitable chaos in your life.
Sure, the entire self-care movement, which is based around commercializing ‘relaxation’ products that help you take a load off, has taken off in recent years; but that doesn’t mean the chaos stops when you come out of your face mask and bath-bomb coma!
Chaos can mean different things to different people: for some, it’s a schedule-packed day navigating a large and bustling city.
For others, it’s weekly family dinners.
Whatever your specific chaos, the key to enjoying life is embracing the confusion and facing it head-on.
That’s where Chaos Never Dies Day comes in, it’s completely dedicated to enjoying the chaos in the world around us!
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.
THE OLDER ONE GETS, THE MORE ONE FEELS THAT THE PRESENT MOMENT MUST BE ENJOYED, COMPARABLE TO A STATE OF GRACE.
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-
10-minute tip- inhaling any of these aromas that was explored in the past blogs for ten minutes will make a real difference to your day.
They will clear your mind and improve your sense of well-being.
Tomorrow, we will start exploring special blends for scented spaces.
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,
However, despite the foregoing, a low-fat, low-cholesterol diet is no guarantee against cancer unless toxemia from other sources is avoided, and such toxemia is possible on a high-protein vegetarian diet containing excessive quantities of grain products and lentils.
0The author's observations of cancer occurring among conscientious followers of the Pritikin diet led him to suspect the heavy dependence on grain products, having previously noted the exacerbation of arthritis which accompanied excessive intake of these foods.
These suspicions were confirmed by the results of the US Government's six-year Multiple Risk Factor Intervention Trial (MRFIT), evaluated in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) in January 1987.
The trial was conducted to evaluate the risk factors involved in coronary heart disease, in particular the relationship between blood cholesterol levels and heart attacks among the 12,000 male participants.
As expected, the group with the lowest cholesterol levels (below 4.3) suffered only one quarter the death rate from heart attacks than the group with the highest cholesterol but, surprisingly, this low cholesterol group suffered just on fifty per cent more deaths from cancer than all the other groups (whose death rates from cancer were all about the same as each other), which led some doctors to believe that low cholesterol levels could actually favor the onset of cancer.
But this did not make sense because all previous knowledge showed low cholesterol to be protective against cancer.
The PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth.
We stand by this and continue to do daily; walk, meditation, and Qigong.
WANTING TO CONTROL
Until Thursday, do not anticipate trouble or worry about what may never happen.
Keep in the sunlight.
