Hello faithful followers of this blog…I do hope this entry finds you healthy, happy, and victorious in The Battle. Like so many things in life that seem to “slip away,” this blog has been dormant way too long. Here is an up-date:
Daily juicing of carrots, cucumbers, apples, beets and greens has accelerated our journey toward vibrant health. We are eating more whole foods, nuts, seeds and sprouts; veggies and fruit. Winter is coming and immune systems need to be strengthened. We have also turned another significant page in our journal of life together.
We are actually getting to bed EARLIER! Sleep is such a healer. Good, deep sleep before midnight will do wonders for overall health. We are not spending time in front of the computer screen before bed either. The EMF’s so damaging to our electrical brain activity seriously disrupt sound sleep. Here’s a neat thing to do as the days get shorter: Light lots of candles around the house and finish your day by candle light only. Turn off the lights and bathe, brush teeth, even eat your evening meal by candle light. The resulting relaxation will usher you into dream land and restore calm and peace to your environment. (be sure to blow out all of them as you retire!)
Health is truly our greatest wealth.
So many of us press our poor bodies through the sieve of busyness and elevated self-importance leaving only fragmented strength to put one foot ahead of the other for yet another day. And what for? Money? Success? Fame? What good is all that when we feel awful in our bodies?
A friend of mine recently had an unfortunate car accident. She needs about $400 worth of therapy immediately. “I need to buy new tires for my car first,” was her statement. And my response…”what good are new tires if you are too damaged to drive?” This principle can apply to all sorts of things. Say you want to take the family on a nice vacation so you are pulling 60 hour weeks with little rest, eating on the run, and enjoying minimal quality family time day by day. Do you really suppose that vacation will be a time of enjoyment when you are exhausted, depleted of energy and zest for life because of burn-out?
Slow down out there. Let’s take each day as the blessing God intended. Pause to breathe, enjoy a sunset, sip a glass of fresh juice and smile at the loved ones surrounding you. Really, 90% of our health quality hinges on our attitude and spirit. Laughter and joy are the best medicines and they are free! So, rest often, eat well, love much and let’s have a healthy and happy winter together!
