Thankfulness 365

One of the joys of the holiday season is the increased focus on appreciation what people are pleased with and focus on what is good. Thankfulness for blessings, family, memories, successes and more. This increased focus on thankfulness is infectious, inspiring, and delightful.

At any time thankfulness can truly be magical. It tends to make situations change for the better. Positive psychology has proven that choosing the feeling of thankfulness and focusing on what you are thankful for often instantly improves your mood.

Many spiritual systems teach us that thankfulness is so powerful that it attracts more situations, things, people, and outcomes to appreciate. I recently saw a powerful example of consciously choosing to be thankful. A woman had been experiencing health issues that resulted in continual pain and unwanted medication side effects for a few years. After going through a thirty day thankfulness protocol she experienced the following changes: (1) she was able to more fully focus on techniques that reduced the pain, (2) she was able to eliminate the need for medication, and (3) she created happier life experienced due to her shift in mindset. Practicing thankfulness is simple and powerful.

Here are some things to explore. Identify three experiences that happened today that you enjoyed, appreciated, felt good about, or were inspired by. How did you feel after exploring pleasing memories? What if you lived more of your life in that state of appreciate, wonder, and a state of awareness set on looking for things that are good and awesome for you? What if you openly appreciated people that bring you value and joy? What if the heighted spirit of thankfulness became a norm throughout the year for you?

Could you choose to journal and record your personal rampage of  thankful each day for a year?

Autumn Wellness Wisdom

What would happen if you explored being more in harmony with the cycles of nature. A lot of ancient healing and lifestyle wellness techniques are still very effective because they respect and align with the rhythms of nature and the universe. The rhythms and cycles of nature apply to the internal aspect of your mind, body, and spirit as well as the external aspect of your environment. It is all connected and choosing to neglect the rhythms is like swimming up stream and being against natural flow.

In the USA Autumn is in full beauty. Crisp air, leaves falling, and signs of change all around. The wisdom of Chinese Medicine tells us that Autumn brings an increased energy of organization, order, communication, stability, the mind, setting limits, and protecting boundaries. We naturally tend to be more reflective, turning inward to our work, our families and our homes during this time. According to the wisdom of the Ancient Taoist wellness principles, it is time to embrace, nurture, and strengthen the lungs and large intestines. These two internal organs related to Fall and the Metal element. These organs are associated with the emotions of “letting go” of what you no longer need and results in sadness and grief when out of balance.

It is important to keep the mind clear and “let go” of negative emotions, which can impact health more strongly during the fall. Often a higher since of clarity, peace, and vitality can be achieved through Qi Gong breathing exercises.

There are foods and herbs that are great for this season. There are foods and herbs that amazing at nurturing the organs but the choice to be more in harmony is equally as important as your meal and herb strategy.

Remember that wellness is lifestyle and mindset. You deserve to enjoy optimum wellness in all seasons.

Spring Cleaning

Spring is officially here. It is now a great time to deep clean your home, re-organized your life, declutter, service the HAVAC system, shred junk mail, service your vehicles, get an annual credit report, and more. For some people Spring Cleaning feels almost like a biological imperative. Scientist have noted that at the Spring or Vernal Equinox, we tend to be energetic, spirited and jubilant. Further, with the boost of energy there is a focus on transition that effects nature and us as human beings. For many cultures the Spring Equinox marks the official start of the New Year.

It is not only a great time to renew and refresh your surroundings and tools, it is also an excellent time to renew and rejuvenate your body.  Have you found yourself or some of associates focusing on renewal, new beginnings, personal changes, or personal balance during the Spring?

This fresh-start effect not only impacts the mind, it also impacts our body. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Spring is a great time of renewal for the organ systems within your body. Further, it is the best time of the year to detoxify the liver. According to TCM, during spring our liver energy, or Qi, is naturally rising, and this helps the detoxification process.

If your home, car, machines, and schedules function better after good Spring Clean, how do you think your body would function after some Spring Cleansing. Your lungs, liver, bladder, kidneys, heart, stomach, pancreas and colon need the same Spring Cleansing and maintenance effort as your home. At Thrive Now Wellness we have found that Spring Cleansing your body is an effective preventative and healing wellness practice that yields unmatched mental, physical, and emotional results.
