Begin again

Spending time in nature has healing and restorative power. Being outdoors increases well-being, helps alleviate stress and anxiety, promotes creativity, assists with recovery from mental fatigue, helps restore attention, boosts the brain’s ability to think, and engages the senses. Catherine Morey-Nase

As I was reading the quote above I found myself shaking my head and saying yes Yes YES as it partners so beautifully with the card I drew earlier – nurture nature.

It’s so easy for me to lose track of time while at my computer, and I need to remind myself to get up and get outside:)

Just like I schedule daily stillness/meditation I must also schedule movement/walking out the front door.

What does balance mean to you?

You may not know that I’ve been studying ancient energy healing practices for many years, and fell in love with Qigong during my first class back in the mid 80’s.

I was startled that my body began to slow down, relax and flow with the gentle Qigong movements right away.

Regular practice helps us tune-up our vital life force energy and return to feeling peaceful, grounded and centered.

A few benefits from regular practice include feeling incredibly connected, creative and present.

During the month of August let’s mix it up by practicing Qigong together for 10-15 minutes early Tuesday mornings via Zoom technology.

All righty that’s it for now…hope you’ve had a positive week during these wild and complex times…cheering for you always!

much love,
Joan
