       EXERCISE-(C'MON, READ IT ANYWAY)


Stress coping technique...

You know the drill... check with your doctor first. We don't want you hurting yourself. Then, go for it... start with walking. You don't have to go sweat buckets in a gym or fancy (expensive) spa. Just get out in the fresh air and sunshine...and walk, jog or bicycle. 

Exercise for 1/2 hour, every other day. Why not every day? Because, if you go every day, you'll get sick of it and quit! You know you will. Start slowly and build as your endurance grows. Who knows? Maybe you'll get into it, and start entering marathons...

Exercise is crucial to your well-being. Find what you like and make it a permanent part of your life.

           MEDITATION

DO NOT let the word "meditation" scare you away. This has nothing to do with Indian swamis or zoned-out hippies...

...this has to do with emotional survival. It is "hands-down" your best tool to finding peace... happiness... and love. It unlocks your creative energies, provides calming serenity and enhances your quality of life.

Meditation is not a religious discipline. It is a medically proven technique that provides physical stress relief and a healthy alternative to mind-numbing drugs and alcohol. It decreases your heartrate, breathing rate and blood pressure. It lowers anxiety levels and can decrease insomnia, fight infection, and help in weight control. Read this article  for a little more about the scientific support for this practice.

The benefits are profound... physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. And yet... it's so simple to do and easy to learn.

                                        


Have we got your attention? What exactly is meditation? Quiet relaxation...you close your eyes and quiet your mind... gently returning your thoughts again and again to a simple focus of attention. That's it! For 20 minutes of quiet-time per day--- twice daily is better yet. The repercussions will astound you.

All of us here meditate. I find that sometimes I tend to slip out of the practice...then come to realize that I am tense--- anxious---stressed-out. Then it hits me! "Yeah, okay, you haven't been meditating lately". And I'm flooded with relief when I remember that I still have a safety net... meditation. It pulls you out of the pit...and never fails you...

       IS IT SILLY TO PRAY FOR LOVE?

Whether you ask for help in finding the right partner, or in keeping alive the magical spirit of love between you and your mate...No, prayer is never silly!

Inviting spirituality into your heart can help you cope...not only in romance, but in all areas of your life. Surrendering to a higher power is a sign of strength and wisdom...not weakness and defeat. I don't know about you, but I need all the help I can get!

And it's an easy thing to do. Just ask... with an humble heart... give yourself up to your God's care... plead for grace... and you will be provided for. It's that simple.

I never considered myself a very religious soul... I figured I was doing  just fine, coping with loneliness in my usual "strong" manner...'til one night, in the depths of my despair... I "let go and let God". And guess what happened? The burdens lifted from me immediately! I had finally figured out I couldn't handle it all by myself anymore. And I was no longer alone, from that day forward...
