You can’t control everything, no matter how hard you try.

Hello followers,

Good morning, Monday!

And happy first day of spring.

A couple of weeks ago, Dan and I started going to a Tai Chi class.

If you are fifty-five and older, I highly recommend checking with your local senior community centers, if they have a class of Tai Chi.

There are so many health benefits in doing Tai Chi.

This week Dan and I will be focusing on the topic that we started last week on illusion of control, plus Tia Chi.

Let us begin with causes of the Illusion of control!

Today we will explore two theories: self-esteem and control.

Researchers have proposed a few different theories about why people overestimate their control over different situations and outcomes.

One theory that suggests that the illusion of control helps to maintain and enhance self-esteem.

People feel better about themselves when they believe that something they wanted to happen is due to their own actions.

Another theory is that people have a need for control, so viewing uncontrollable events as being within their control helps support mental well-being.

Research has found that when people perceive things as uncontrollable, they may be more likely to experience negative emotions and decreased motivation.

Tomorrow we will explore two more: self-serving bias and attribution errors.

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.

March 20th

WE GO NUMB WHEN WE want to avoid something.

We do this in many ways.

We may shut down or lean into a drama to create a false narrative about what is happening.

Drama can be a deterrent from feeling and dealing with core issues.

Use stillness to create awareness and then proceed with love and understanding.

Take time to learn and grow from these experiences.

Find out what the lesson is and lose the desire to go numb and avoid what you need to face head on.

PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth.

There are so many health benefits in doing Tai Chi.

This ancient, physical, and meditative practice is designed to build strength, improve health and flexibility, reduce stress, increase energy flow, promote health and wellness and relax your mind.

These easy-to-follow lessons that Dan and I will be posting will teach you the Tai Chi postures with clear, step-by-step instructions.

The routines are low-impact with modifications taught for less-flexible people.

We stand by this and continue to do daily; walk, meditation, Qigong and Tai Chi.

If you would like to follow with us; hash tag words #walk, #meditation #Qigong on the right of the main blog page.

Until Tuesday, now practice shifting your mindset to the things you can control,

and you will get much further in life.
