Rule number one is, do not sweat the small stuff. Rule number two is it all small stuff.
CONTINUING ON A NEW SERIES, WHEN YOU’RE TOTALLY STRESSED OUT? PLUS, CONTINUING ON THE BOOK TEN-MINUTE RELAXATION FOR MIND AND BODY. ALSO, CANCER: CIVILIZATION’S -NO. 2 KILLER?????
Good morning, Monday!
This month I delight in all the little joys chilly weather brings big fluffy sweaters, hot chocolate, and a crackling fire in the living room fireplace.
With this, let us continue, the third benefit of self-care when stress about a major life change takes over your life.
Your body breathes relief.
Self-care includes some of the things we take for granted and may not think of as self-care at all.
Rest enough, sleep soundly and nourish your body with healthy food so it can keep up the pace.
All these things boost your immune system and improve your resistance to illness.
When you can arise each morning feeling refreshed, the trials and tribulations of life seem less daunting.
Not only do you build resistance, but you build resilience.
That combination will take you a long way to adapting to life change and building the strength and stamina to move through it.
Tomorrow, the fourth benefit of self-care when stress about a major life change takes over your life.
NOVEMBER 7th, 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?
Color the World Orange Day – November 7, 2022
This day goes out to Dan and my grandson, Jonah.
Both are in love with orange.
The first Monday of November is Color the World Orange Day, on November 7 this year.
This day is dedicated to creating awareness for an illness that is still poorly misunderstood, providing support to those affected, and educating the world about its existence.6
Color the World Orange Day stands at the front of creating awareness and educating the larger population about a rare condition, but not uncommon, primarily among society’s middle-aged members of society.
On this day, the medical profession stands with the people affected, and the day pushes the universe to understand, sympathize, and act where possible.
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, also classified as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), is a neurological discomfort that includes heightened nerve impulses in a specific body site.
Medical specialists speculate that the condition is a result of a dysfunction in the central nervous system.
An injury to the leg or hand can also bring on the syndrome.
A triggering of the immune response can cause injury related CRPS, which may lead to symptoms such as redness and swelling in the affected area.
It is thus believed that this may represent a disruption of the healing process.
In history, several medical bodies and independent doctors have tasked themselves with understanding the causes and treatment for this syndrome.
Presently, there is no cure for this disorder, so the goal is to relieve painful symptoms associated with the disorder.
Methods include psychotherapy, physical therapy, and drug treatment.
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.
ASKING YOURSELF THESE DEEPER QUESTIONS OPENS UP NEW WAYS OF BEING IN THE WORLD. IT BRINGS IN A BREATH OF FRESH AIR. IT MAKES LIFE MORE JOYFUL. THE REAL TRICK TO LIFE IS NOT TO BE IN THE KNOW, BUT BE IN THE MYSTERY.
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-
By using simple techniques and aromas you enjoy, you can help yourself to cope with the demands of a busy life.
Many essential oils have antibacterial properties that help the air around you clear and virus-free if other people are suffering from colds and flu.
Your favorite aromas can be used to improve your mood and help you to concentrate.
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,
Sir William Arbuthnot Lane, BART CB; Consulting Surgeon to Guys Hospital; Consulting Surgeon to The Hospital for Sick Children, London; President of The New Health Society; author of The Prevention of the Diseases Peculiar to Civilization (1929).
In his surgical practice, Sir William noted that so common were diseased colons he was forced to conclude the colon to be the seat of most chronic diseases, and for some time he specialized in the removal of diseased colons.
This procedure confirmed his ideas because most of his patients' chronic disorders cleared up very quickly after losing their colons, and their overall health improved.
Eventually he realized that the colon was not, itself, a troublesome organ, and became diseased only because of the kind of food people ate, and that the resulting disorders were the result of what he called autointoxication.
It was at this time in his career he became converted to the concept of natural health and thereafter concentrated his efforts on educating patients rather than cutting pieces out of them.
The PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth.
We stand by this and continue to do daily; walk, meditation, and Qigong.
RULE NUMBER ONE
Until Tuesday, if you want to assess your memory,
try to recall what you were worrying about one year ago
