In this busy, busy world, it’s easy to get overwhelmed and to balk at adding “one more thing” to your day.

A meditation practice of 1/2 hour morning and night seems like too much- but it’s not the only way to meditate

…and I’m still writing 2014. On checks. On blog posts. On reports.

And I’m going around cleaning up after myself, changing the dates to the new year.

Sigh. Old habits are hard to break.

And as I’m crossing out 2014 and writing in 2015, I’m also thinking about other old habits that I should be examining to see if they need changing. What do I need to change in my writing, my habits, my life to keep up with the world and live in the now, as opposed the then.

It’s worth thinking about.

Oh, look, there’s another one…

…so what are you going to do with it?

Life is a journey, and if you’re traveling but don’t know where you want to go, the odds are good that you’re not going to get there. Last post, I talked about choosing goals and making resolutions about what you want to do with your year. That’s important, because your goals are where you’re going, and if you don’t set goals, time slips away and leaves you with nothing to show for it.

Haven’t set any goals yet? How about now? Don’t worry- I’ll wait.

……………………………………………………………………

When you’re on a journey, you need more than a destination though. You also need a map- a plan for how you’re gonna get there. In your life’s journey, that means things to do to move you in the direction of your dreams.

If you want to get out of debt, you need to

  • look at your budget
  • figure out how to cut our expenses
  • figure out how to make more money
  • have a plan for paying down your debt.

If you want to lose weight, you need to

  • look at the calories you take in
  • look at the calories you burn off
  • find a way to cut the one and build the other
  • find an exercise plan you can stick with

and so forth

Just about every dream is attainable if you’re willing to do the work and keep moving in the direction of your dreams.

So, if you have a dream, what can you do to move in that direction?

We’re on the journey together

The holidays are upon us, and if you’re like me, you’re running around like mad, decking those halls and jingling those bells and doing everything that you can to make this a wonderful holiday for everyone.

Sometimes, though, when we take on too much, we end up giving ourselves stress. This is unhealthy, and can make us miserable and no fun to be around. Stress can actually spoil a holiday.

So stop. Give yourself a present. Give the people who love you a present too.

Take a moment or two now and just r-e-l-a-x…

This is a long video. You don’t have to watch all of it. You don’t have to do anything in particular.

You can watch the flames and take deep breaths. You can use flame gazing to chill out. You can put it on as company as you wrap a few more gifts or write a few more cards.

Just take a moment and relax. The holidays will still be here when you’re ready for them.

Happy (and relaxed) holidays

Mainstream medicine does a great job of helping us return to health when we’re sick or injured. Alternative health does a great job of helping us keep from going there in the first place.

But it’s not always fun or easy to live a healthy life style. So, one great gift can be something that makes it easy and fun.

You can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make him drink. Likewise, you cannot make someone do things that you think would be healthy for them. Different people have different needs and interests, and what you think is great might be just what that person doesn’t need

But, sometimes people are ready and interested, and all that they need is a little help to get started. And at that point, that little help truly is a gift

Hydration-

55-60% of the human body is made up of water, and both mainstream and alternative medicine agree that one of the most healthy things we can do for ourselves is to drink enough clean water everyday, (Something a lot of us have problems doing.)

Want to give the gift of hydration? A water filter, whether attatched to the tap or on a pitcher or water bottle provides a regular source of water that’s clean and free of many impurities. A fun water bottle makes it easy to keep track of how much water you’ve drunk and to carry water with you (and therefore drink it) throughout the day. (Aluminum has a possible link with alzheimers, and some plastic can leach chemicals into the contents with prolonged use, so the best choice is a stainless steel bottle.)

A healthy meal-

In this crazy, multitasking world, it’s often easier and more convenient to grab some fast food or convenience food when the day is busy. While that’s ok in moderation, it’s not always the most healthy choice.

To give the gift of nutrition, it’s first important to remember that a meal isn’t healthy if the person won’t eat it. Pushing an extreme dietary change on someone who doesn’t like it is not a gift.

That being said, you can offer to cook something healthier that your recipiant does like, or take them out for a healthy,balanced meal, or give them a gift certificate to a food service (such as one offering fruit, or prepackaged healthy meals) where they can make their choice of something healthy.

Environmental sounds -

The modern active lifestyle can create stress, and it can be difficult to calm down and release that stress at the end of the day.

Environmental sounds, whether music, sound effects, or sounds of nature are designed to be played quietly in the background as you go about your day, and to lead your brain waves into more calm, relaxed, less stressed patterns.

Two good sources of these recordings are The Relaxation Company (http://www.soundstrue.com/relaxationco/index.php)     and Brain Sync(http://www.brainsync.com/)  (Free samples at Brain Sync)

The gift of rest-

One of big causes of illness and injury these days is insufficient rest. Folks are so busy trying to be all things to all people that they end up not getting enough sleep and downtime. And stress doesn’t help with this either.

One way you can give the gift of rest is to give the gift of your time. Is there something you could do for that person to free up some of their time so that they can take a nap/ get to bed earlier/ or just relax? There are many things (child care, errands, cooking) where it only takes slightly longer to do them for two people than it does for one, and the time and energy you save the recipiant of your gift can be the best thing you can give them.

So there’s four things from the world of alternative health that you can give to people you care for to make their world a better place. More ideas coming up in the future
