Sometimes the right path is not always the easiest one.
Well, it is the first Thursday of 2023.
What is up!
Today Dan and I are sharing the second step and action you can take, to ensure that you will carry out your resolutions and plans.
It will be perseverance!
Usually, when we start something new, we would be motivated and inspired, but after encountering difficulties and obstacles, and if things take too much time to change, we begin to lose our enthusiasm and question whether it’s worth it.
At this point, we need to muster our self-discipline and persevere with our efforts.
How do we keep persevering?
For us it is a tough question.
You simply need not to give up.
This is what separates a successful person from unsuccessful person.
It might help thinking about the benefits you will gain after accomplishing your goal.
Reading about people who met difficulties and conquered them could help also.
Training and strengthening your willpower and self-discipline through suitable exercise can strengthen your perseverance.
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
The body is covered with hundreds of points that link up to form the meridians.
It takes many years to become a practitioner of acupuncture or acupressure.
However, there are some simple techniques that you can apply to yourself which will help rebalance your energies.
You should use the soft pads at the end of your thumb or fingers to apply gentle but firm pressure for five seconds, then release.
Acupressure can be applied while clothed.
Tomorrow, HEAD AND NECK ACUPRESSURE SEQUENCE
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.
THERE IS NOTHING LIKE A FRESH CUP OF COFFEE or tea in the morning.
It is a slow ritual to begin the day.
It is satisfying to wait for the water to brew the grounds or tea leaves to seep to create the prefect cup.
If we can wait for perfection in a cup each morning, why do we get so impatient with the bigger things in life?
If you are in a period of waiting, take a deep breath and know that good things take time.
The PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth.
We stand by this and continue to do daily; walk, meditation, and Qigong.
Until Friday, pursue some path, however narrow and crooked,
in which you can walk with love and reverence.
