Staying in Balance
In our November/December story “Living a Balanced Life,” we asked for reader responses to the following question on our blog at www.energytimes.com: How do you balance your responsibilities with activities that let you renew and recharge? Here are some of the answers we received.
Choosing activities that fit all three necessities—physical, emotional, spiritual—in one dose really helps out my somewhat erratic and hectic lifestyle. My favorite activity has become yoga. I used to view yoga as strictly an emotional/physical balancing outlet, but there are teachers and styles that really address spiritual connectedness as well.
Sunday is my day of rest and worship. I attend morning and evening services at church and spend the remaining time resting and relaxing.
It is through meditation that I experience peace and positive energy. When I meditate I envision a beautiful chakra blanket laid over me, healing my anger and stress, and rebalancing my system.
I am currently struggling with weight gain and menopause. Meditation, taking time for an acupuncture treatment, journaling, getting wonderful healing touch from a friend, walking, playing music and dancing with my cats have all helped me to balance my health, spirituality and emotional state. My mantra: Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
Role Model Appreciated
I enjoyed the Kathy Ireland article in the June 2010 issue. Kathy is a great role model for women, and her efforts to regain and maintain her good health are an inspiration. What’s more, her ‘keeping it real’ notion is much needed in today’s society.
Go for the Granola
Visit www.energytimes.com and go to our blog, where you can comment on stories and enter the contest for an assortment of granolas from Julie Anne’s All-Natural Granola. Your response must include your email—giving us only your blog screen name does not help us contact you.
The site also features Web Extras, editorial material you will find only in the online version of ET. As you read this issue, look for boxes like this one; this month’s Web Extras include an extra Cooking Corner recipe and ways to treat headaches. In addition, you will find a Web Extra in “Reversing Heart Disease” directing you to the following question on our blog: What natural treatments are you or a loved one using to help overcome heart disease?
