Hi This is my first official "Blog". I posted this info on someone's welcome but it will probably get lost in a few days. There was an article in this month's Arthritis Today magazine that talked about using a major change in your life as a springboard for making other changes. Most people think that when your life is in tumoil due to a sudden change (such as illness, surgery, moving, retirement, etc...) what we want most is known routine. However studies have found that when you are in a time of changes, it is actually easier to make healthy changes because your brain is already in change mode and it adapts to more change. So next time we are hit with a crisis it might be good to step back a minute and ask ourselves how we can use the momentum that change brings into our life to make healthy changes in other areas of life.
Interestingly, in the Chinese language, the symbol for CRISIS is the same as the symbol for OPPORTUNITY !! Hmmm.... those old wise ones must have known a thing or two back then!!
Just FOOD FOR THOUGHT.........HUGS---Lynne
