Holiday Stress

It is that time of year when a lot is expected of us to make the holidays perfect for everyone. We often sacrifice our sanity and endure a lot of stress to make it happen. Don't let the holiday season stress you out.

Here are some tips that I hope will help to bring balance to your holidays.

1. Don't sacrifice your health. If you exhaust yourself mentally, emotionally, and physically, then you will be of no use to anyone. Instead, put yourself first. Eat healthy, drink plenty of purified water, and get plenty of rest.

2. Remember that it is a joyful time of giving. The gifts are not the most important thing. Just being with your loved-ones is the most important thing.

3. Remember to be thankful for all of the abundance in your life. Sit quietly and take note of the people and things in your life that you are grateful for.

4. Don't forget to breathe. Take a break and sit quietly and focus on your breathing. Breathe deeply into your abdomen. Inhale slowly and exhale slowly.

I hope you have a joyful and stress-free holiday season. Email me or add a comment and let me know what you are thankful for. I am thankful for all of the readers and students of Inner Vitality Qigong. I look forward to working with you in the coming year.

Healing, Truth and Acceptance

SunriseWhen we talk about healing, we are talking about a situation, mental, emotional or physical, that we don't want. We are referring to a condition that we want to change so that we can feel whole and well again. We want it to be healed, changed, made better or released. This is generally what we mean when we use the term healing.

So the first step to healing is to acknowledge the situation that we want to heal. We must take a good look at our situation now and be truthful about what we see. It may be some health condition that has been limiting our life or activity. It may be sadness that has paralyzed us. Whatever it is, we need to acknowledge it.

Then we need to accept this condition or situation that we want to heal. We must accept the conditions of our lives right now. We only live in the now. So accept what we have right now. If we accept it, then we can move forward to change it.

If we resist what we don't want, then we give more energy to what we don't want. Whatever we give our attention and energy to, it grows and expands. This is also true of resistance. In this case, if we resist our disease, we give more fuel to the disease or condition. This does not mean that we deserve it. It doesn't matter how we got it. If we already have it right now, then we must accept that we have it before we can truly move forward to change it.
