Those who move forward with a happy spirit will find that things always work out.
Well, another work week is ending.
As the work week ends, there is something that I wished I had learned at an earlier age.
How attempting to control negatively will affect our lives.
Perhaps, if Dan and I had learned this, our health would have been better.
Moving forward and release control!
It may be natural to want to control everything, but that does not make it healthy.
There are many ways in which trying to control everything could backfire overall.
Like increasing stress and anxiety!
People who try to control everything may experience more stress and anxiety than those who do not.
The simple act of feeling out of control when it feels necessary to have it can make a person's blood pressure rise.
One study noted that it is more devastating when things do not go according to plan for people who feel the need to control than for those who feel less need to be in 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
As we end this book, just remember we have been given our magnificent sense as tools for life.
They are with us in every moment, walking and asleep.
They have been designed to let us appreciate all the wonders of the world we live in.
Let them start working for you.
May your life simply expand and unfold like a beautiful flower in every way.
Let yourself find the inner peace, tranquility, and rest that will sustain you in your everyday life.
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.
FOG ROLLS IN AND COVERS THE SHORELINE, shrouding everything in mystery.
Like a heavy blanket, it covers everything in its path.
Only when you move close enough to something can you see it clearly.
There is beauty in mystery and discovery.
If you are in a period of wondering, move closer to get a clearer picture.
Be patient for things to reveal themselves to you.
There is beauty in revelation.
When we wait with anticipation, the reveal can feel even more astounding.
PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth.
We stand by this and continue to do daily; walk, meditation, and Qigong.
If you would like to follow with us; hash tag words #walk, #meditation #Qigong on the right of the main blog page.
Until Friday, you were not made for failure, you were made for victory.
Go forward with a joyful confidence.
HAVE A WONDERFUL THURSDAY
