-American consumers have no problem with carcinogens, but they will not purchase any product, including floor wax, that has fat in it. - Dave Barry -My doctor told me to stop having intimate dinners for four; unless there are three other people. - Orson Welles -The food here is terrible, and the portions are too small. - Woody Allen
Are you a person that has found the relaxing qualities of Yoga or Tai Chi? No?! Well, you might want to think again.
The slow, accurate movements in Yoga and Tai Chi have these benefits:
1) Increasing Flexibility – Both forms have positions that act upon the various joints of the body including those joints that are never really on the ‘radar screen’ let alone exercised.
2) Mental benefits - Both forms tend to give you a clearer and more relaxed mind - and this can happen on day 1. Stress levels are also decreased.
3)Internal benefits - Both forms help improve the workings of internal organs, assist in better breathing, and also can help you sleep better.
Your challenge today is to STRETCH & MEDITATE. You don't have to do Yoga or Tai Chi. You can just sit in a quiet room, in the park, or even in your backyard. Take slow, deep breaths. Slowly stretch. Kick the stress out the window and RELAX. Think positively and enjoy your surroundings.
QUICK NOTE: If you are a fan of Tai Chi or Yoga, feel free to share what you like about these forms with the group. Who knows? You just might encourage other team members to try something new!!
*I appreciate everyone who had to deal with me this week. It was one full of a ton of stress and I personally plan to take my own advice today! Thanks for bearing with me this week!
Have a GREAT Sunday!
I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. Agatha Christie ----------------------- Kierae
