The path to youth takes a lifetime.
It is Friday and before you know it, the weekend.
Today Dan and I are sharing the third step and action you can take, to ensure that you will carry out your resolutions and plans.
To carry out resolutions you need to act, not tomorrow or next week, but right now.
Do not wait for the right time, because the right time is now, and procrastination means waiting for never.
To make the changes you want you need to act, otherwise, nothing will change in your life.
Tomorrow, LEAVING YOUR COMFORT ZONE
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; HEAD AND NECK ACUPRESSURE SEQUENCE/TEN-MINUTE EXERCISE
This sequence eases mental stress and headaches or heavy feelings in the head.
And helps improve concentration, for example if you work on a computer; like I do.
1. Working on the crown of your head as if your hair were parted down the middle, starting at the hairline at the top of the forehead. Use the first two fingers of your right hand to make a line of six pressures toward the back of your head. Each pressure should last about five seconds. Repeat this sequence once.
2. Using the first three fingers on each hand. Apply gentle pressure to your temples. Next to your eyes. Do three pressures of five seconds each
3. Using all four fingers and both hands. Apply two rows of pressure to the back of your neck, on either side of the neck bones. Do three pressures of five seconds each.
Tomorrow, LOWER BACK ACUPRESSURE SEQUENCE/ TEN-MINUTE EXERCISE
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.
WHEN YOU AWAKEN, take a moment to do a scan of your body.
Notice any places where tension may be and breathe into each one.
Feel your breath fill you as it relieves the tension.
Allow the oxygen to reach all the way to your fingers and toes.
Notice how you feel after each breath.
Take this bodily awareness into your day and be grateful for your body and the wonderful miracle it is to be alive.
The PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth.
We stand by this and continue to do daily; walk, meditation, and Qigong.
Until Saturday, all paths are the same, leading nowhere. Therefore, pick a path with heart!
